    I have a G5 Dual 2.5 GHz Power PC with the original 160GB internal drive.

    I'm looking to add a second Serial-ATA internal drive with a LOT of space. I've seen capacities up to 1.5TB. That sounds great, but my most important criteria is reliability and a track record of quality. Can anybody suggest a drive that would be ideal or, perhaps, a site that offers good advice?

    Hard Drives are tricky in that everyone is gonna rely on their own experience to tell you what sucks and what is amazing.

    Personally, I stick with Western Digital and Seagate, with a preference toward Western Digital. I've never had either arrive DOA, and they've all lasted quite a while.

    I've been eying this particular 640GB hard drive for my next external enclosure:

    Great reviews and amazing PPG (Price per Gigabyte). Hope this helps.
