Verrry nice, my laptop currently has the 7200rpm 320gb momentus in it (7200.3 maybe??) and it pretended to die on me and then randomly worked again and never gave me one issue after that. This looks to be a pretty sweet drive that you reviewed here, and certainly a worthwhile upgrade (beyond the need for capacity). I wonder how power efficient it is since it's so fast (though I'd imagine it's atleast efficient as my drive and perhaps even more so).

Because HDD manufacturers count like humans and Microsoft counts like computers

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
