The other drawback that I can think of is the potentially increased likelihood of failure due to age. Not saying they will, but just something to keep in mind. Just make sure you have backups and you should be fine... not that having an F3 is really any excuse to NOT have backups .Second (and apologies if this is a rookie question), I have access to two older 500Gb HDD from a previous build. If I opt use these instead of the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB what are my drawbacks other than possibly more noise and higher heat; are they worth it to save the $89?
