    Seen on ocuk these drives for £45, these fast enough you think for a MCE 2005 PC ? will be in front room, and will be used to record TV on regular basis, or should I get the 7200RPM drive ?

    The pc will never be switched off, just go into standby mode

    I would just like to add that you should run the samsung utility to knock the drive into it's silent mode!
