saw this hard drive on sale at newegg:

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s with NCQ Solid State Hybrid Drive -Bare Drive

Anyone using this or recommend it? For the price it may be worth the i only have 120GB now.
Read some reviews of people using 7200 RPM without problems.

A customer says:
If I had a choice, I would only go with WD and 5400rpm..
Just me though.

And that is a SS hybrid - uh.....

Personally I'd stick with a 5400 RPM just to avoid heating issues. I'm sure people out there use 7200 and are fine, I just like to stick to as close to stock as possible so I don't create problems. Especially with the slim and super slim, all the components being tighter together, I wouldn't want to risk heating things up more than they are.

As far as the Solid State Hybrid, there's really no reason to get that. I've seen performance reviews of people using a pure SSD and only gaining maybe 2-4 seconds on loading screens, and noticing no difference while playing. So maybe you can find a 500 gb 5400 RPM on there for roughly the same price?
