I hate it when people argue on EAB but you have to be kidding me right? There is no way I would recommend a spinning 2.5 disk over a CF card nowadays. The CF is faster, it won't fail (for what most of us use them for, we are not writing database transactions right?) it uses less power and is quieter, and probably cheaper. Any spinning disk of this interface type is likely very old and in who knows what condition.
