off topic, but those Ultra16 Maxtor drives come with a 16MB buffer.
does the large buffer make any difference at all ?

Who am I or you to make that decision? I just put the ad up and each individual needs to make their own decision.

Also, some folks don't live in a large city and are limited to shopping at particular stores....

I don't know how much that big buffer helps with every day applications...curious myself. If no one gives a reply I'll look for some reviews.

Found only one review ( its over at AT ) but it was for the SATA drive.

The 250g Maxtor w/16mb buffer hung in there with a 74g Raptor II . Not to bad for a 7200rpm drive :)
