Default New hard drive.

My mother told me this morning that she's coming up $70-75 short in my stuff, compared to my kid brother and sister. I've been thinking of getting a new hard drive lately, and I saw this WD is available locally. Now, I don't really follow hard drives too much, and space is more important to me than speed is (within reason, of course), so does anybody know anything about this drive?

May be instore, but the nearest Frys is 600 miles away from me, so it's a bit out of the question, not that I wouldn't like to have that drive.

Question

Got it installed and ghosted the 7K250 over to it, along with some partition resizing. So far, it's feeling a good deal faster than the 7K250, not that it really matters to me. I'm more about the capacity, which this thing helps me greatly with.
