+1 There are no physically perfect HDDs. Not one. Yet they remain a solid reliable technology with many years of usefulness remaining.

I still need a viable replacement though for long-term storage of my several TB of home video and jpegs.

Your RAM score dropped because you have a less than optimal amount - a sufficient amount, yes, optimal, no. Your HDD score may reflect that.

The score doesn't matter. Your user experience does. Most users (not video/audio editors, for example) will not SEE or FEEL any difference.

I was just looking at more RAM but am not sure what to do, one extra one G stick of the same kind is $23 delivered and another 3GB pack is $66. One thought is to wait till I can afford the 3G or get one every now and then but ? ? ? ? on the other hand. . there is the getting of a 2GB stick of the same family for $46 every now and then?

I wonder if I can sell a kidney on ebay? . . I think i'll sell the kid with the lowest grades, yea, that's it.
HEY JUNIOR! I GOT GOOD NEWS, YOU'RE GOING ON VACATION!

I know someone that may be interested in that kidney, let me know when you post it on eBay.

Hoping to distract you from the fact that your mouse is plotting against you and that the monitor is in on it also.

That's weird but I think Antman is correct. I've tried both on a couple of PC's and x64 always scored .1 higher on the cpu and mem. They all had 4GB ram though

my score is 3.5 for video and everything else is about 4.7. I have played around with video settings and with score doesn't change but I can go from 18FPS to 81 FPS just with a slider from high quality to high performance.
