Quiet and reliable are a must. Cheap makes it all the sweeter. For a Mac Pro.
750gb Seagate Barracudas for £121
Western Digital Caviars 500gb £84.48
I recommend Seagate through eBuyer:
500Gb for £62 inc.
The Samsung Spinpoint drives are known to be quiet and reliable, and generally cost around the £60 mark for 500Gb. I've got two in a media center machine, and can't hear them at all.
When buying new drives, I often look at the leaderboard on Storagereview.com and see what their current favourites are.
For UK prices I look at google.co.uk/products and computerprices.co.uk,
amazon, and ebuyer.
Hope that helps.
Seconded. Search for product code HD501LJ. Go to storagereview and loook at the benchmark for idle noise to see the difference.
