heh.
i commend them for that, but ive never had luck with their drives.
there always off their mesured size when i get them (ex labeled 120GB, was 103GB) and i have never had that problem with other manufactuers.
i would vote seagate for quality,
but maxtor for price.

damn that's way off, my 120g WD drive has 111G on it, which is the right size.

I have used all of the three in the poll and I can assure you that none of which gave me any problems at all.

I'd have to say Samsung...I've had four of their drives so far and i find them to be very durable, though maybe not as quiet as i would like

All HDD don't carry as much as they say do, its always a few gig's less. This may be differant for WD 10,00 Raptor
