Default Pick a HDD Manufacturer!

If you had to pick one manufacturer, which would make every single one of your hard drives, which would it be?

I'm feeling the Western Digital love over here, with the uncontested 10,000-rpm market and the super-quiet, super-efficient 500GB Caviar SE16.

I've never had anything other than WD and never plan on it. I've heard too many bad things about Maxtors and although many praise Seagate, I have no reason to change.
WD FTW!!1

Hmm Seagate is catching up .. I figured that it'd be a close call between Seagate and WD ..

I have both Seagate and WD, and both serve me well.
