120 GB formatted capacity
5400 RPM spindle speed
8 MB buffer
12 ms average seek time
5.6 ms average latency

Is this good for my TC1100? Can I have everything on one partition or I have to split it like 160GB.

Can TC1100 support 250G HDD?

The BIOS supports up to 120Gb. Some HDD manufacturers utilities may overcome this limit.

Thanks,I want to take a 250G HDD to replace 40G . Had someone done it success ?
What you might do is partition the hard drive into portions under 120- or 130 I don't remember but this has been discussed before. And yes you need to make sure that it it IDE PATA. You might try a search on this site for this subject or wait til tabletron arrives to save the day. LOL

the best HDD (beside using SSD) is still Hitachi Travelstar 7k100...7200 rpm 100 gb...
running this on my main system now...
My mobile system is using SSD PhotoFast 2.5" GMonster-IDE V3 SSD ...and win 7 boots up in 45 secs and shut down in 23 secs!

Well docg, Sorry but not saving any days this time. I have not been a fan of partitioning the drive to work with the TC1100 just because I have not needed anything over the 138 gig limit of the Tc1100 so I settled on the 120gig drives in my units. But too answer the question that clongx asked I would say that docg is right on with his answer. Just set the main partition to 120gig and put the system on that partition and you will be fine using the other partitions for storage, and it does have to be a IDE PATA drive. The SSD's are nice for speed but as of now the cost to me per gig does not justify changing over. JMO
