Ok, but will I run into any issues of it being slow when accessing media all the time? I mean I'm always digging around my media drive using it, adding new stuff, playing, copying etc?

No you will have no problems with that drive, it's 7200 rpm like most drive's , if were me i'd partition it to make it more useable, just go for it

If you're going to be using it to serve media in a home network, you might want to consider going with the RE-4. It's expensive, but almost dead even with a 300 GB 10000 rpm velociraptor, and designed to be used 24-7
