Will you notice a big diff between a 8 meg and less buffer on HD's?

Will you notice a big difference between a 8 meg buffer, and lets say a 2 meg one on a IDE hd?

it depends mostly on what you're doing. I've got the 2MB version of the WD1000B, and it's plenty fast for me.

Just for copying large amounts of files.

In other words, it matters only in benchmarks and in your head. The difference may be there, but it won't be noticable.

Let us not forget the all important notion of "bragging rights." ;)
