I want to upgrade my Sky + from a 40 to a 120 GB drive. Reading what others have done Idealy I want a 120gb Maxtor or Samsung with a spindle speed of 5400 rpm (these seem most compatible). Most drives of this size seem to be higher speed. Can anyone suggest where to find one. I've seen 60gb drives of this speed (on Ebuyer) but not larger.

Most newer drives are 7200rpm. Why would you want slower?

Because Sky+ prefers it. I don't know why! It will work with several drives, but the ones I mentioned seem to be the favourite for upgrades.
