    Who has one? How is it? I'm upgrading from a 7200rpm maxtor. I wanna see how one goes and might get another to run raid 0.

    I've got a 36gb one. It's really fast, and I did notice a difference in going from a 7200rpm WD drive with the 8mb cache. Not a huge diff, but definately noticible. They do run a bit hotter too, so you may need to add an extra fan.

    I just ordered a 36gb myself along with a few hundred dollars worth of other parts :)

    With the HD I ordered a HD cooler - I'd recommend you do the same...10k RPM gets HOT really fast.
