Hi
We're running out of space on old amd fileserver with a sata II disk.
It's been doing 12 hour days for several years. I've found good deals
on these:

http://www.pccomponentes.com/seagate_barracuda_7200_12_500gb_sata3.html
http://www.pccomponentes.com/wd_caviar_blue_500gb_sata3.html
Anyone any preference? Or WHY.

A few points.
They are sata III. sata II are difficult to find and are more
expensive. It seems the connections are the same. (?)

SATA III is faster (6Gb/s), that's all.

I would go for the Seagate of those two modules you've listed. I
believe WD Caviar Blue is targeted for the private (non-business) use.
