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!

I'm pretty happy with 2 Maxtor drives D740X. One 80gig and one 20gig.

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...?

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
