my dad's Dell (Laptop) had a 20GB Hitachi, it lasted about 2 years and died

personally, I'd get a Seagate. if not, then Western Digital.

I've heard good things about Hitachi's. No first hand experience though.

I own an 80GB Hitachi Deskstar. Runs fine so far, but it is only 1 year old (at least that is when I bought it).
