    Every harddisk ever made should be able to support that speed, the slowest ive ever tracked is 150KB/s and that was circa-a-long-friggen-time-ago

    If you're using it as a storage drive, seek time naturally isnt a concern

    240MB or 240GB? :) Just look for a 5400RPM, 2MB, massive drive and you should be fine :) Transfer speed and accesstimes arent a major consideration for archive type drives

    They make harddrives :)

    Dont call them. It's SUPPOSED to be 250GB... you WANT it to be 240GB ... I was just checking to see if you made a typo or something

    Says who?
