lag from hard drive
I bought a new samsung 80gb 7200rpm 2mb buffer IDE HDD recently. I was expecting to get roughly the same performance as my WD 160GB 7200rpm 8mb buffer IDE HDD. For some reason the performance seems really crappy. Things seem to lag out all over when I'm doing stuff. I don't get a 5 second boot up anymore either. I have a samsung 120gb 5400rpm 2mb buffer drive and it performs better than this.
