I would go with a Seagate or Western Digital hard drive They are the top 2 HD brands and prefferred by most on these forums.

Yeah im not saying there a crap brand but most people prefer Seagate and WD.

I just had a quick look at the link u gave for the HD and it appears you have to pay $10-20 for warrenty. Seagate comes with a 5 year warranty on every HD.
