The Seagate 250G SATA are $104.50
The WD Caviar 250G SATA are $99.00
Seagate offers a 5 year warranty
Western Digital offers 3 years.
I'm sure it won't be long before WD offers 5 years also.
But, either Seagate or WD is an excellent choice.
I just stick with Seagate because i've probably purchased close to about 50 or so SATA drives or the last 2 years, 120G, 160G, 200G, 250G, 300G and out of every drive i've purchased, so far only (1) drive needed to be RMA'd due to a mechanical malfunction. They returned me a brand new drive in 2 days... IN that 2 year's not one of my clients has had a HDD issue. Well, one did. But that's because he put his 10" Subwoofer flush up against his case. Why? I have no freakin' clue. The drive was never able to retain data on it again...
But, that was his fault anyway... lol dumbie...
