Summary: One of the drives appears to only be 130 GB not 500 as advertised. More investigation to determine exact size underway. After further investigation, drive is indeed 500 GB. Sorry for the operator error.
Summary: This model may not be made anymore. One came with my inexpensive PC and it is extremely quiet, both spinning and seeking. I've purchased this as a backup clone that can be swapped with the original.
Summary: I have one of these drives in a Mini Stack enclosure. I use it with a Mac Mini. The drive is fast at 7200 RPM. I can't tell a difference in speed between the external USB/Firewire400 drive enclosure and the internal Mac 80gb drive. I've had it for 1 1/2 years and it still works fine.
