very much true, actually. just be sure to get the particular brand's top-of-the-line parallel drive and not their value one. and take warranty lengths into consideration; any harddrive from any manufacturer can fail at any time.Vector said:I'm going to let you in on a little secret.
It doesn't matter which brand you buy, as long as it's one of the major brands (WD, Maxtor, Samsung, etc). They all perform exactly the same, and they're all prone to failure just like the others. One person will tell you to buy a Maxtor, while another tells you to buy a WD. But the truth is, it doesn't make any difference, as long as it has the specs you want.

I haven't heard a hard drive in years. The damn CPU, video and case fans drown them out completly.
PS Avoid seagate. I've seen more of them fail than anything else.
