It looks like the new 7200.7 drives are already getting to suppliers! PCNation.com claims to have the 40GB 7200.7 drives
It's sad to see the aging Barracuda line drop from the production lines according to this little story
However, I believe the Cuda IV line has made a great impact to shutting up computers!
I still don't get why they are stopping production on the Cuda Vs because they are still fairly new.
If you haven't read about the 7200.7 drives yet, they are supposed to aggressively compete with the current top performers.
The 7200.7 line has 80GB platters (40GB per side). I'm "patiently" waiting for the 80GB to be available since I would like to have a 1 platter HD to minimize the noise for my new PC as much as possible.
I'm sure you guys have outdone me but my Cuda IV inventory consists of: 1x30GB, 3x40GB, and 1x80GB. Since my first 30GB Cuda IV, I haven't bought any other brand since.
