I was bored with "Still being a little bit off topic" LOL.
Very good info for those looking to improve performance of their HD's. Unfortunately, some of these changes would almost require a tech support person for my PC's (laptops) Swapping MB's, etc., is more challenging in laptops. HD's them selves are easy in most cases, so is Ram, but to switch type of HD (IDE to Sata, etc.) would be a large undertaking in my laptop because of the need to switch MB and other components.
