Great article! I have been using this drive for close to a month in my gaming rig. Let me just say that I have been HAMMERING on this drive at least 12 hrs a day with SOF2 Multiplayer, Morrowind,( my nephew pLays when I am at work) and MOHAA. It is nice to see benchmark results resounding what I already know about the great performance of this drive. What more can you say? like many other great choices out there, if you a shopping for 80GB solution right now, grab this sucker. when will the working version of the Data Lifeguard for WD drives be available for XP"? anyone? is there another set that is comparable?
