Default Seagate 15,000 cheetah

Anyone purchase the new 15,000 rpm Seagate Cheetahs? I want to buy a mess of drives and I am debating whether to purchase the 10,000 RPM Cheetahs or the 15,000 rpm Cheetahs. The seek time is faster on the newer model but is it worth the extra $100?

Wow...hadn't seen them...15,000 rpm. That's really cookin...

Bear in mind that 50% extra speed might mean more noise, more heat, and possibly less reliability....maybe not. The early 10,000 rpm cheetahs where quite hot and seemed to be a bit prone to failure. On the other hand, Seagates drives are very good, and seem to get better all the time.

I've been using a pair of 7200 rpm barracudas and am very happy with them. I've tested recording 64 simutaneous tracks with them...no problem. I decided that I really didn't need 10,000 rpm, so I opted for the quieter, cooler 7200s.

I have heard that these drives can overload your pci bus, they have scsi 160 interfaces if I'm right. Me myself I use 10.000 rpm uw/scsi3 drives and they work very well.
Remember faster is not always better.

Take care,

I read from a couple sources, one of which was Seagate, that the 15,000 RPM drive actually has LESS heat than the 10,000 RPM drives and is quieter.

Pretty cool, huh. Still think IDE is the future though.

Alan waiting for Digi to test the new Maxtor IDE drives and give them the thumbs up LaFleur
