So I'm planning out some future purchases I'd like and currently I have External HDD on that list.
I'm deciding between 2 hard drives, one being a 1TB from Toshiba w/ 64MB Cache and a 1TB w/ 128MB Cache from Seagate.
i'm firm set on either one of these, but I can't decide. Since I'm going to be using them for a External HDD solution, my only concern is how much performance difference will there be between the two drives? I doubt there's much difference when it comes down the drives themselves besides what features they boast/advertise, so I just want to know how much difference I could except in R/W speeds between the two. Would the 128MB be largely better? Would the difference be substantial?
The price differential is like $8-10 currently, which isn't really a big deal to me, it seems pretty substantial that the 128MB Cache would be more.
