It's been twp years since I have purchased a Western Digital hard drive. I had two WD drives go dead on me (within a month) back-to-back, and that scared me off of them. I decided to give them one more try with their new external drives. The delivery by Buy.com was great - fast and well packaged. However, the drive was dead upon arrival. Not only that, but WD's e-mail support (I wanted to check with them before I returned) has yet to respond to my e-mail query. It is now 5 days and counting. I finally called them and they told me to return it to buy.com. WD has proven to me, for three drives running, that they produce a very inconsistent product.

I'd go with Seagate, namely SCSI, or SATA (make sure it has min 3- 5yr warranty ...just in case, but you'll probably not need it). I've had my SCSI Cheetah 15,000 RPM drives for almost 4 YEARS+ running everyday, with no flaws or breakdowns... Talk about quality and performance!!! Suggestion: Go with Seagate, and if ya can afford SCSI or even faster interfaces from them, go for it:) its workth every penny.
