No other advantage - they are otherwise the same.

Power usage difference between the two will be negligible if non existent.

It may cost a little bit more but have a look at the Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB - it has 32MB Cache.

Above comes with 5 year warranty so should be worth the extra "pennies" click here#
