Uh...price? Around here a 4.3 GB Baracuda is $880; a 4.3 GB Fireball
is $390.

I've found the Fireball drives to be ok, but they fail more often
than Hawks, Baracudas or Atlases. Also, there are two models, the
ST and the TM. I can't remember which is which, but the 5400 RPM
one is slow, and the 4500 RPM one even slower. :-)
