    Default 320GB HD: Which brand?

    Hello,

    In the market for a PATA 320GB harddisk(for internal usage). For now I am not looking at Maxtor.

    So anyone got recomendation for a good one which can last long since I plan to dump 4 full HDD into the 320GB drive. Good shop?

    Thanks!

    The proverb "Don't put all your eggs in one basket" comes immediately to mind.

    Any brand is good as long you don't get a lemon.
    I would go for the brand that give the longest warranty and easy to RMA.

    Yes its 5 years warranty. So of the data are meant to last a lifetime, so if the Hd dies in say 1 year, 5 year warranty no use, data cannot be recovered.

    Then again maybe someboard inside is spoilt, so can still be used la.

    From experience samsung is still a big no no in hdd. I had a friend who did 3 1 to 1 exchange in 1 month.

    If you dun want to put all your eggs in 1 basket, den can get 2 or even more baskets and do raid =P

    Talking Re: 320GB HD: Which brand?

    Am surprised hearing so many CSer stating that Seagate is good. Doing a search in HardwareZone found out that many people there are against Seagate. So which is right and which is wrong? Really eager to find out also...
    Me personally use a Seagate 250GB 7200RPM (only $149) and so far so good!
