what are the price differences? if they're the same get the maxtor, though seagates come with a 5yr warranty

Thanks for the fast reply guy's .

The maxtor is 77.44 pounds English
The seagate is 62.22 pounds

So 15.22 for a 16 meg Cache

I no dout will have bad cooling for a while thogh ( rig not built yet )

Mator has a 3 year manufacturer's warranty ..

So i make it the Maxtor a winner ...For 77 quid for a 16 meg Cache 250 gb hard drive .... thats not bad ;)

rofl, at first glance: "Damn, those are some heavy harddrives!"

:LOL:
frankly, they would be extremely light:
mg is milligram = 1/1000 gram. Mg a Megagram would be very heavy. Considering that your "one-a-day" type of vitamin pill probably weighs around 500 mg, an 8 mg HDD would be nice :)

I think this is what Strykar was talking about... :p

The maxtor is 3.22GB/pound, the Seagate is 4.01. I'd still go with the Maxtor (but get the Maxline series, just for the extra 2 years warranty).

Honestly, I'd rather have a Maxtor 8MB drive than a Seagate 16MB drive in terms of application level performance. However, the Seagate drive will run significantly cooler (about half the power consumption/heat) and have higher transfer rates.
