    IBM is now being sued... becoz of its glass substrate platter...

    IMHO...just get whatever that fit your purpose.... because it is merely a game of lottery if you are getting hdd from sim lim square because majority of the hdd market does not belong to distribution like SLS... more towards oem computer makers...

    IBM Harddisks has worked for me for a long time. But then again, I haven't bought harddisks since the 15gig times... now it's 80gig.

    btw, where can the EIZO lcd be previewed in SLS? I went there to try to see as recommended by a few people but cannot find it there. I didn't look very hard coz got not much time. Which shop is it again?

    there's another reason: it's still pretty new and haven't started failing yet. two of my GXPs failed after 9 months of usage.

    You all sure want to buy IBM harddisk? they are losing $$ and will be bought over by Hitachi...which means IBM harddisk owner will have problem claiming warranty in future

    Taken from

    http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmp...m_hitachi_dc_1

    SAN JOSE (Reuters) - Hitachi Ltd has agreed to pay $2.05 billion for IBM 's hard-drive operations and move them into a company under the control of the Japanese electronics giant, the companies said on Monday.


    The two companies announced in April that they would collaborate in data-storage systems and form a joint-venture for hard-drives, a troubled business segment for IBM recently.

    Hitachi will initially own 70 percent of the new company, which will be based in San Jose, California, and will take over full ownership in three years after a series of fixed payments to IBM.

    Hitachi estimates that the new company, which will employ some 24,000 staff at 11 locations around the world, will deliver sales of about $5 billion in fiscal year 2003 with a target of revenues of $7 billion by fiscal 2006.

    Hard disk drives, similar to other components for computers, have experienced slack demand and sharply reduced pricing in the past year. While IBM claims to have invented the hard disk drive, industry watchers have said the company have lost money in the business in recent years.

    i myself using 2 40GB hdd in my present rig a seagate cuda IV and a Maxtor D740x

    i find that the seagate one is better... the built and all that

    anyway do consider the IBM 120GXP as it uses the lastest technology and glass as its media

    I tell you the Eizo LCD are of very good quality. We have about 160 of those 18.1" L685 in the trading floor in my co.
    How I wish I can get one of those at home.

    Thanks for all the reply; I suppose other than myself, others have also benefitted from the discussions. Fyi, I bought a 80 GB Maxtor (not because I think it's the best) and a TDK 40R12RW48R CD-writer from Superpet yesterday.

    Did you get the Fluid Dynamic Bearing version? Or are they all FDB? ... I will probably get a maxtor and would like to know how to tell the difference etc....

    Can tell from the model number. E.g. for the 80MB D740 series, if it's 6L080J4 it's the normal version, if it's 6L080L4, then it's the FDB one.

    Similarly for the other capacities. 6LxxxLx is the FDB, 6LxxxJx is the normal bearing one.
