Which HD is the best ?
1. Maxtor 40 GB Diamond Plus 7200 RPM
2. IBM Deskstar 40 GB 7200 RPM
I like my Western Digital.
I will be allways a fan of IBM > i prefer this .
well i have always bought from the IBM deskstar series - in fact I have just got the 123.5gig 7200 Deskstar120GXP drive at a snap of a price of £153
deskstars are speedy and nice--i have three of them. but i've heard too much about reliability to call them perfect. mine are fine, but my dad's imploded the other week and he got mad at me for getting ibm in the first place (i built his comp) and now he has a WD. it seems decent. }:\
maxtor is great, too. i guess nowadays they're all pretty equal.
well i've got seagate and ibm drives in my computer. the ibm gave me problems a little while back (god damn 75gxp line).
my deskstar is crapping out. Only year and a half old.
