Wow! $33!? I may have to rethink the 2mb vs 8mb cache between retail and oem...what does cache for an optical drive do anyway?

ozkar, now that I look at more reviews (I am in the same exact boat as you), I like the Samsung 352b a little better, though it IS hard, if not impossible to find the retail ver (8mb cache) in black. If you look both drives up at neoseeker.com, and read the neoseeker reviews (for consistency), you w...

Hitachi 7k250 impressions

After reading and re-reading this forum and other sites, looking for the most quiet SATA drive, I decided to bite the bullet and buy an 80gig ver of this Hitachi drive. Since there was so much conflicting info about whether or not this drive is quiet, I just wanted to post and give my thoughts to ad...
