View Full Version : fujitsu 20 gig hd
there is NOTHING you can do with an old PacBell from that generation. Honestly- get a new computer- you will be much better off...everything is integrated. talk about trash. I used to have one, and when i tried to replace the MODEM all hell broke loose...

pretty decent deal:
Fujitsu 20GB Hard Drive $89.95
- Fujitsu 20GB Hard Drive MPE3204AT
- Cache buffer of 512K for efficient performance
- ATA 66
- Fast Access time of 9.5ms
- 3 Year Limited Manufacturers Warranty
What a deal, $89 for a 20GB drive.
hey thats a sweet deal i think i am going to buy that
it will expand my hard drive space to 23gigs
hmm i am not sure my BIOS will accept hard drives that large though and my computer is a packard bell
any suggestions or is there a way to install the hard drive without any problems. My friend has a compaq from the time of my pac bell and he could not install a 4 gig extra hard drive because his BIOS wouldnt recognize it. Is this common or i am worryign about nothing-

i've had a lot of problems installing new hardware on compaqs and pacbells. i'd hate to break it to ya, but they cheap out on a lot of components (all of them i think) so compatability is often an issue. how old is this computer, and what are the specs? that would help.
okay then for a new computer what would you reccomend- building myself
or a Dell because i need a good computer that i will be able to expand upon
i am workign all summer so iw ill be able to get my own computer for my room
what are you suggestion?

I'd suggest you to have a self-built computer. You know the quality of each parts and you get what you really want. By using the deal and doing a little research on pricewatch, pricescan, it actually saves you a lot of money. =)
hmm quake 3 i couldnt play that on this 2 meg card if i tried i really need to upgrade

Grab a GeForce2 MX. It's cheaper than GeForce DDR but the performance isn't far behind.
hmm thanks i think i am going to create a post in hardware though
I have about 1k to spend (more but i would like to save that for pimpin gear and parties and girls and such)
and i should also probably save somethign for college but for now one thousand should do fine i just need my own dedicated computer so i can program for the c++ course i am going to take
is that a good HD????? I mean, I know it's a good deal...anybody got ny suggestions for big HD I know IBM is the best. THANX
I am a big suporter of Fujitsu hard drives. They are IMHO some of the most quitest drives I have worked with. Performance is on par witheveryone else, but they are great drives. Not a bad deal at all at $89, even a better deal at $79 if you go to pricewatch.com at check out the hard drives listed under the 20.4GB selection.

but hasn't Fujitsu ceased making hard drives anymore, I wonder if they even support them.

I'll tell you what... The newer hard drives make the ones just a year ago sound like crap.
I just bought a Maxtor 15gb drive for a friend's machine. It is 7200rpm, fast (ata66) and so quiet I have forgotten the machine was on a few times. By comparison, the old Western Digital 3.2GB that is being replaced can be heard across the room when the drive is active.
