Seagate for me. I was unhappy with the build quality of the W.D. drive I used in a build and it put me off using them unless the price is right.

Seagate has the lowest failure rate of all drives, followed by Western Digital

It's a matter of preference. I have one maxtor external and one internal (I got them a while back - 200gb internal for $25 black friday). They haven't failed me.

I've heard good things about Seagate, try them.

Maxtor are pretty unpredictable. sometimes they last a long time, a lot of the time they don't.

Seagate has actually bought Maxtor a while ago though
