You know, I've seen some damn long descriptions of where people live, and I was just wondering how freakin' long of a location they actually allow you to write in here. Looks like it's quite a bit. Oh well, if the space is here I'll use it!!! :)
It's not 5400rpm, but the Seagate Barracuda ATA IV with a fluid bearing are supposed to be very quiet, and very cool running.

IMO, Mr. Derek Smart is a hypocrite: Only someone who is either (a) lying (b) ashamed of their products (c) just plain ashamed, would hestitate to give out some simple and straight forward information. - Derek Smart, Ph.D.
It is going into a server with 4 hard drives already in there, plus this 80gb is going to be purely for backups only. I won't be accessing it all the time. I don't care about the spindle speed, access times, or transfer rate. As long as it is reliable, and can run cool and quiet. Plus, the 5400rpm 80gb Maxtor or Seagate runs about $30 less than their 7200rpm version.
Anybody have any experiences with Samsung? It's down to Seagate or Maxtor, maybe Samsung, but only if someone can give some positive reviews.
