You are mistaken - 120gig drives are not available in that form factor yet.
The largest capacity drive that will fit in the h140/h340, that you are
likely to be able to buy, is currently an 80GB dual-platter toshiba drive,
and even those could be hard to find More recent drives (e.g. the toshiba
100GB dual-platter drive) has a different interface, so you will need to
build (or purchase) an adapter to use one of those.
