I like WD Drives. Pretty cheap, and much more reliable them IBM Deathstars.

Right Now Im Running 4 WDs, 1 Maxtor, 1 Seagate SCSI, and 1 Fujitsu

I've got a WD1200JB and IBM120GXP, WD a bit disappointed me becoz I pay more than IBM but get the same performance.

for the range of EIDE, I like IBM120GXP. Best buy!

used to be a Maxtor fan (still am actually - they're VERY dependable) but on the system I'm building ATM, I'm going with a Seagate Barracuda - I've got a Shuttle XPC SS51G and I want to keep it as quiet as possible ... Seagate makes the quietest drives, from everything I've heard...

I won't even bother arguing with you, just do a search on Google for "quietest hard drive" (include the quotation marks) and see what keeps coming up... 33dB when seeking, 25dB during idle - it's the Barracuda, sorry to say. ;)

On the other hand, WD's with the 8MB cache offer the best performance, maybe that's what you had in mind...?
