    Any brand will work (and there are only 4 for 3.5" IDE drives, Seagate/Maxtor, Western Digital, Hitachi and Samsung.

    Seagate has the best warranty, 5 years - so I would go with them or Western Digital (3 year warranties on their OEM drives which you can get at any online place like NewEgg or OWC).

    I highly recommend Seagate. The majority (if not alll) of their drives have an excellent 5-year warranty.

    My $0.02.

    Another vote for Seagate!

    Seagate! And go for a 7200rpm too for speed! You'll notice a difference!
