Re: Best Laptops for PTLE

This might solve the problem, or not. In my case an external HDD with Oxford Chip set solved nothing! I had and still have the same problem like mortensen. I use a Fujitsu Siemens AMILO M3438, 2GHz,...

Re: Why Seagate Barracuda and not Samsung SP P120?

What do you mean with reliability? Do you have long time experiences with both HDDs?

It is a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M3438, 2GHz, 1 GB RAM, 2x 80 GB HDD (5400rpm), IEEE 1394 Firewire400 4 pins.
