Harddisk manufacturers display the drives' capacity using decimal number. In binary 1024=1GB. In decimal 1000=1GB

Western Digital, speaking of money...I sent in a rebate to them a long *** time ago for one of their SATA 10,000RPM drives, $25 bucks back, never received it, or haven't 'yet' anyway

Hitachi is the leading manufacturer for very small hdd's like the one's in Ipod's and similar things.

Seagate without a single doubt. Maxtor might be faster but I don't want to count the number of Maxtor drives that died on me.

Yeah, but it's very hard to argue with a FIVE year warranty on a seagate hard drive. Liz

i voted for maxtor..yes they crash , but mune run 24-7 and i push the h#*l out of them. price cant be beat for what you can do to them. Here is the kicker, i shorted one out (live mobo, and loose screw into drive) and they replaced it for free! and because the drive i had was smaller than the smallest one they had , i got the bigger one! not bad at all . and still all i had to pay was shipping back to them within 30 days. Thanks Maxtor !
one other thing ...the reason you only get "X" amount out of any given drive is because they withhold that ammount fot the partition info ....boot sector in relation to drive area for programs
