Re: Help me choose a HDD
I own the 1.5tb seagate, and it's brilliant. Works amazingly well, and it's pretty speedy as far as drives go. At the moment, I have it in 5 partitions: One for Vista64, one for Win7, 2 for pagefiles, and one for storage. Works great.
To touch on the firmware issue, it wasn't as big of a deal as it was made out to be. Some drives were affected, and Seagate had updated firmware for these drives. What happened was people didn't read the instructions and would just arbitrarily update their firmware in a panic, which Seagate stated on that page would brick the drive.
EDIT: Looking again, the 1tb caviar is a good deal since it has a 10% off promo code, you may want to jump on that.
