Say big brother does the Dragon supply 1.5 or 1.8 to the RAM (or as necessary)?
Whoa. Thanks for the caution. What what I do without you guys??
And you're happy with it?
USPS delivered yesterday - will advise, however have little doubt.
Also have in place and runnin' like champs the Momentus XTs - price to capacity to perfomance, the value kings.
1.8v nominal. I doubt it is capable of adjusting down to 1.5v. Though 1.5v RAM is likely capable of running at 1.8V. Just a bit warmer.
Why'd you switch from the Momentus XTs?
Didn't really, went to XTs when V2 died - lucky enough to have an old WD2500BEVS (org HD) belly up under extended warranty on DRAGONy and since HDs didn't show in replacement screens when I called HP is givin' me $150 towards the HD of my choice, and I had an Amazon $25 GC so .... some luck huh?
Oh, excellent. So you were/are still happy with the Momentus XT?
For the OS drive, what would you suggest I go with? A full-on SSD or a Momentus XT? Spending less for more storage is attractive, but then so is performance.
DEFINITELY. Performance difference, while slight is somewhat noticeable to the naked eye, BARELY - when you can get the XT 500 today for $96 delivered from Newegg (meaning you can have two of them, and $50 in your pocket, versus one 120GB X25M) ... if it weren't for the $150 credit and the $25 GC I'd only have XTs right now.
Can someone explain to me the "newer" Advanced Format 4K sector thing with hard drives? From what I gathered, these hard drives use 4K sectors instead of 512 bytes, but 2 questions remain for me:
When would these be a problem (without installing aligning software, whatever that is) when connecting to a machine...is it just with XP and older or vista/7 as well?
Why is this considered new/advanced, when I can take any external I have and format it with whatever size i want including 512, 1024, 2048,4096,8192, 16K, 32K, etc.???
