Seagate has recently announced the immediate release of their new Cheetah 15.5k line. These SCSI hard drives are their first 3.5" drives featuring perpendicular recording technology.

Perpendicular recording involves storing data perpendicularly (as you can already guess) rather than flat on the platter. This allows data to packed more densely, giving more storage space and faster access speed. Seagate first released this technology in their Momentus line of laptop hard drives.

These drives give up to 30% performance increase and double the storage size over their previous 15.4k line. These will come in 300GB, 147GB, and 73GB model varieties. Press Release

Nah still not working, but then again im pasting straight in to PS... I should try pasting in to paint some time and see if that works.

I despise paint so I usually never use it, I'll give it a shot next time I'm trying for the ss action though, thx for the suggestion mate.

I have it pinned to my start menu. Takes 2 seconds to load vs the 10-15 seconds for photoshop to load :)

Paint is the best MS application ever. OK so I use PS, FW etc for most stuff but for a quick screenie paste you cant beat the 1second load times of Paint :D
