In short - my current 250+320 drives aren't simply cut to the task anymore.
In our day and age where Price/Gig of Dual Layer+R DVD is about 50c where Hard drive is as low as
13c 9c !!! Care to guess which one I prefer :
The flaky optical media easily damaged by scratches, corrosion, over-pressure and simply time factor OR high speed of both read and write, extremely high number of re-writes etc...
Since yesterday I got the great news about Newegg stopped collecting taxes in my state, I happily decided to come back and check new deals, among other things I made a small table of Sata2 7200Rpm 3.5" Hard drives, sorted by Price per gig and got some interesting results.
Below are top 5 of the cheapest driver (per gig)

|$84.99 - SAMSUNG HD642JJ 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (Bare Drive) - Retail||$84.99||640||0.132796875|
