which drive to buy!?

Recommended Posts

I want to buy a sata drive but cannot decide between a seagate 7200.8 (5 year warranty)or a diamondmax 10(higher performance). If I get the seagate will i really notice the lower performance in normal applications?

Have you looked at the Hitachi T7K250? This would be my suggestion.

not yet because its availability seems to be limited in my area at this time. My only hope to get one would be by mail order.

Drive Image or Norton Ghost should both do the trick.

I returned the seagate and got a diamondmax 10 200gig drive instead. Something about the way the seagate ran i did not like so now i have the diamond max. But I have another problem. When I use Drive Image 7 to copy one drive to another I get a problem with the new drive when I boot with it. It will boot into the desktop but their are no icons, taskbar etc. So something is not working during the copy but i have no idea what.
