    There is a 500GB model out there made by Samsung, but it's a little hard to find. 320GB drives are readily available.

    the 500 is so slow no worth it in my opinion

    It's 5400RPM, it's the same speed as the hard drives currently in Macbooks. Also, with increased platter density, you gain a modicum of speed over smaller drives with the same rotational speed. Sure, 7200RPM is significantly faster, but you don't have 500GB as an option at that speed, not to mention the fact that you have to deal with increased heat and a decrease in battery power as a result of the extra speed.

    Just because it says that it is a 5400 RPM doesn't mean that it's slower than a 7200 RPM. Same thing can be said the other way around.

    The Samsung 500 GB one has a really crappy seek time, and everything else is pretty average. It uses more power than some 7200 RPM HDD as well. It's worst than some of the older generation 5400 RPM HDDs.

    If you want more space go for it. I on the other hand don't approve of new technology that is worst than older generation HDDs. >_<"

    If anything just go get a WD Black Scorpio 320 GB 7200 RPM or Seagate's 320 GB 7200 RPM. They are both pretty much the same thing depends on which brand you like more. ^-^"
