Recommend this product?
My currents system:
athlon xp 2000
asus a7n266-vm mobo
20gb wd2000bb HD
100gb wd special ed. (8mb cache!) HD
hp dvd200i dvd r/ rw burner
I use this harddrive to run my OS's off of. It is fast and quiet.
easy, just like any ide hard drive, install and screw it in, plug in the cables and power up.
I partitioned my harddrive into 3 partitions. the datalifeguard program works nicely, but i prefer to use a windows 98se boot disc and use fdisk to manage my partitions
i don't benchmark my hds, so i dont' have any stats. But it does run significantly faster than my other 20GB harddrive (its a fireball 5400rpm drive). It is pretty quiet and stays cool.
a quality, fast and quiet drive. not too expensive for a ata/100 7200 rpm, wish it had an 8mb cache like the special ed. drives, but we can't have everything we want.
