Pros: Eggcellent performance, quality vendor reliability, overclocks well.

Bang for the buck with mail-in rebate!

Cons: Heatsinks bonded to mem - cannot remove if want to watercool memory, although will overclock fine without.

Other Thoughts: buy it while the rebate is valid!

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD753LJ 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: It beat Hitachi, Seagate and Western Digital when it comes to performance. Hitachi and Seagate still offer better access times, which is why Samsung does not dominate the I/O benchmarks, but only the Barracuda 7200.11's access time is noticeably quicker. The maximum throughput of 118 MB/s is up to 18% faster than Seagate's 100 MB/s maximum, and the average and minimum throughput when reading and writing also dominate the benchmark results. When compared to WD's Caviar GP, the new Spinpoint F1 by Samsung offers roughly a third more throughput, which is very respectable.
At a 46°C drive surface temperature it doesn't even get very warm. The other terabyte drives utilize more moving parts, so they all get hotter than Samsung's latest storage monster. Finally, the terabyte Spinpoint F1 even does well in power consumption tests: it requires 6.8 W at idle and as much as 12.2 W when performing intense I/O operations.

Cons: 3-year warranty vs 5 from seagate.
