good choice

Strengths: size and reliability

My computer was built according to my specs. I did not choose the actual parts, but my techie could not have chosen better when he installed this hard drive into my machine.

Weakness: None that I've noticed.

I've used this drive successfully as a second drive on a Win95 setup, and now as the primary drive on a dual-boot Win/Linux box. Seems to me to operate flawlessly in every way. The prices on hard drives keep on dropping, but eventually you just have to buy one and not worry about the fact that you could pay less next week. This will apparently never change.

I used a program called HD Tach to test the transfer rate and I found out it's only going at 1.7mbps. I transfered 3.5gigs from my primary hard drive to this one and it took nearly 40 minutes to transfer. Another thing is when it is processing something, it...
