Default External hard drives

I am finally replacing my sick-sounding Seagate 750 GB external. Probably going to get a 1TB OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro drive from Other World Computing.

Have to decide whether to spring an extra $20 for a 32MB cache (otherwise ships with 16MB) and whether to pay another $35 for a quad interface, on the off chance that I might need eSATA some day. (But if so, and if I really wanted to salvage an aging drive at that point, couldn’t I just put it in a new box?)

Anyone have any adverse reports on these drives? I do not find them mentioned on the hard drive discussions on Macintouch or anywhere else, particularly. Kind of eerie.
