Which ever I get my hands on first. :D Never had a problem with IBM, but when I send back Maxtors I usually get a good jump in hard drive size when they come back. :D.

IMO, there is no right or wrong choice. All of the major manufacturers have had good years and bad years as far as quality goes. I shop on price, warranty, and performance. Now that many of the standard drives have only a 1 year warranty, I look a bit closer at the WD-SE models with the 8mb cache and the three year warranty. Fastest IDE drive I've used, and a better warranty too. :)

i think it's mostly a matter of which is priced the best when im looking for a new one. my latest drive was a 120 gig maxtor 7200 rpm all because for 10$ more, i could up it from 5400 rpm on a wd to a 7200 on a max. my oldest drive is a seagate and i've got to say it's the most reliable...then again it's only 1 gig and with os's nowadays, thats completely and utterly useless for win machines, altho i'm goin to be puttin together a linux box soon on an old piece of junk so that might come in handy.

all in all i used to think that the rpms didnt mean _that_ much but when i moved up from storing everything on a 5400 to a 7200, it's definitely noticeably faster.
