  1. i've hand carried multiple hard drives a few times in the past 2 years, and i have never been stopped once. in fact, i have hand carried a laptop docking station and a lcd monitor two times, both times with no issues. actually, the second time the guy asked me if i had an xbox with me, told him no and that he was looking at a docking station and lcd. no problems at all.
  2. Take all of the above for $300. 2x Seagate Cheetah 36XL 9gb, under warranty to ~2006 (80pin, adapters +$10) $30 each 1x Seagate Cheetah 36ES 18gb, under warranty to ~2007 (80pin, adapters +$10) $55 Take the 3 hard drives with the cpu/mobo/case combo for $100 more.

    Western Digital Raptor Preview

    what ARE YOU talking about? the maxtor 10k iv uses 36gb disks, and has become availible just in the past 30 days. see the frontpage. ages? i think not. 36gb is the current generation (2002-2003), 18 was the last (2001-2002), and 9 was the previous (2000-2001). 36gb/platter is CURRENT technology, and definitly not "ages" old. what makes you think that WD, who has been out of the 10k technology for however long, can produce better 10k platters than the current 10k manufactures? Less, I can beleive, 50% I can not you lose 36% just going from 3.5 disks to 3 inch disks. (not including inside radius of the spindle and the spindle speed)

    obviously there are also technical reasons as to why the areal densities on 10k drives are the way they are. WD did a darned good job, IMO in terms of areal density on the raptor.

    36gb/platters is the norm for the current generation of 10k drives...

    DVD RW Format Wars - Which one's winning?

    has anybody taken a look at the percentages of the players that are compatible with each format? 87% support -r, 82% support +r. i dont believe that that is a great enough difference for compatibility to be a large factor in these discussions. I think vchhelp.com will give you more accurate representation of the compatibility. Their listing reveals 819 DVD players with dvd-r support to 430 with dvd+ support. dvd+ did not live up to the hype of compatibility. did you even read my post? :roll:
