What brand drives do you think are best these days?

I remember Seagate and Western digital were the most reliable last time I was shopping for a comp.

I had a WD 80 gig from ~2000. Easily spent 5 years powered on. Finally died at the end of 2006. A calculator tells me that 5 years is 43800 hours. Probably a fair assessment. I honestly never turn my computers off.
