Got a Jukebox V2 and this thread got me thinking about upgrading the disk.
I can see Fujitsu (4200rpm, 2Mb cache) and Hitachi/IBM (5400rpm, 8Mb
cache) 80Gbdrives and also a Fujitsu (4200rpm, 8Mb cache) 100Gb unit.
The 100Gb drive is 1 1/3 times the cost of the 80Gb drives so I'll opt for
80Gb. Any comments regarding the pro/cons of the spin rates - I'd assume a
slower spin rate would use less battery power but is 4200rpm fast enough
for an Archos playing VBR (lame -extreme) MP3 files (especially as the
cache is smaller)?
