Well, I hate to confuse you even more but I've had some experiences over the past 15 years that I'd like to share that might conflict with the above.

I have had nothing but bad experiences with Western Digital drives. EVERY ONE that I have had has gone dead on me and I have had to return them. However, I don't want to totally bash them as the drives that did go dead were all 40GB or less in capacity.
On the Maxtor end...I have never had a Maxtor drive go bad.....every Maxtor I have is running great.

It should come down these factors....
You want 8MB of cache....
You want a drive that runs at 7200rpm
You want a good warranty...
You want a trusted brand...personally I would recommend Seagate and Maxtor.

Hope that helps!
