So how is the 600GB faster than the 300GB?.......it isn't.

The 600GB uses 2 300GB platters and this drive uses a single 300GB platter. Both drives should perform the same.
The 600GB is faster. Look at the results in the article linked above. The 600GB can read/write to both platters at the same time.

But it's also $180, so at this price a couple of the 300GBs in RAID 0 is a pretty good deal.
