That price is actually pretty good. But why Seagate or Samsung?

I had a Samsung die on me, so I replaced it. Well the new one didn't last that long either. I had 3 other WD drives in my server that are older then the Samsung was and are still going strong.

I wouldn't buy Samsung and I'm not too fond of Seagate. I stick to WD myself.

WD drives are overpriced, the also lag behind the other manufactures tech wise.

Seagate is the leading manufacturer, samsung make the fastest 7200RPM disks though Hitachi disks are not exactly slow. Fujitsu make the fastest 15k scsi/sas disks.

I'm running seagates at the moment. May pick up a bunch of hitachis next time around. My IBM deathstar was a nice little disk when 40GB was considered huge :D

They may be a bit behind but I've never had a WD drive fail on me. Which is more then I can say about the samsung and fujitsu drives I've owned.

I've bounced a few fujitsu scsi drives that continued to work :) makes them okay in my book.

WD's tend to run quieter, smoother and, with the right amount of cache, faster than most other drivers I have used.

I currently have a mix of Maxtor's and WD's. Nothing wrong with either... or with any of the other drives with a 5 year warranty.

There's a reason why EMC uses Seagate and Hitachi in their Symmetrix arrays. I'm also fond of Samsung drives. I have 5 300 GB drives that are still going strong and cool.

well all I can say to that is buggy firmware which has now been fixed. Much like happened with the IBM deathstars.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
