I bought the Deskstar 7K250 250gb unaware the SATAII version had NCQ and denser platters. Is this going to make a noticeable difference? Replacement cost would be about $15.

are you serious i can still change it out
EDIT and $15 covers the shipping both ways and the upgrade fee, its not like a restocking fee or anything

unless ZZF shouldnt charge restocking if its unopened, right?

ordered the T7K250...

so far, about $8 in re-shipping and it will be about $12 to send the stuff back, so "$20 and a bit of hassle" worth of mistakes so far

oh well
