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!

I know, but I seriously have no other choice. All three HD's are constantly full.

Seagate got 5 yrs warranty. Forget Samsung. 2 died on me in less than 6 months.

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

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...:think:
Me personally use a Seagate 250GB 7200RPM (only $149) and so far so good! :)
