I love mine; and would jump on this;only concern is using it with a standard 2.5' adaptor. I've always used them with the IcePack.

 

Another consideration are the Seagate Momentus XT hybrid drives. I have a second gen 750 GB (has the 8GB SLC solid state) and it is great.

 

See this video comparing the hybrid, an SSD, a 10K WD drive (not stated, but it is a VelociRaptor) and 500GB 7200 RPM drive. Note that this is the first gen 500GB Momentus, measured at 13-25% slower than the second gen by Storage Review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kss98VdhSj0

 

I mention this because at Tiger Direct http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7750549&CatId=139 the third gen 1 TB Momentus XT is only $119 and only $89.99 o on Black Friday. Note that this drive is a 5200 RPM drive and not the 7200 RPM that they used to be,but access speeds and sustained speeds are excellent.
