Assume you have two identical HDDs, the only difference is the cache. One has 8MB cache and the other 16MB cache. I'm assuming that the higher cache, the better. Am I wrong?

As much advice on this topic would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Assuming that everything else is the same, a larger cache is better. Often, to complicate things, there are other differences, but if it is the same maker, there is most likely fewer differences and the larger cache might mean that it is a newer drive, so that can be a good thing too.

I could talk about other issues, but that would just cause confusion :-).
