Hi all,

I have just ordered the IDE Interface for my Nokia Dbox2 and would like some help on what Hard Drive to put inside.

From those of you who use the interface, can we start a thread on what hard drive you are using and feedback on its use.

Is a 2.5" better than a 3.5" Hard Drive?

How easy was it to fit?

Also what make of Dbox2 you have and the image you are using.


Many thanks

Michael

I dont have a dbox or know anything about cable.

2.5" drives use less power so generate less heat but are normally slower. 5400rpm

3.5" disks you can get in a larger capacity, run faster and 7200rpm + and can gererate a large amount of heat.
A seagate barrauda will run at 10000rpm.
