Does anyone have this HD? It's alot cheaper than their GP line. I am thinking about getting it for my movies, but I was wondering if anyone knew the temp of this HD.

"slightly" cooler than a Seagate in the same box.... absolute numbers are meaningless...

how hot is pretty hot?

Hard drives don't seem to be really all that susceptable to heat damage in a normal environment.
