After seeing this link, (Pricegrabber.com) Tell me which HDD of the three I should buy. The one in the middle is the same as the one on the left except it has FDB (Fluid Dynamic Balance) technology, which makes it super quiet. Thanks.

i'll go ahead and me the other side of this debate. }:>

maxtor's are great harddrives... but tons of people will tell you they swear by WD and have never had a problem with them. the fact is tha the difference between ata100 and ata133 is almost non-existant... and the 'special edition' WD has an 8mb buffer which let's it become one of the fastest ide hd's you can buy.

actually that 8MB buffer really doesn't add much speed at all, maybe like half a second on burst, but once its going there is really nothing that anyone cares about. My WD crashed a year after I got it, so now I'm thinking about the maxtor with fdb. Anyone have maxtors crash?

You'll be fine with any one of the three - both WD & Maxtor are top notch drives. These days you just want to try to avoid IBM.
