    What Hard Drive Should I Buy?

    This topic came up in a recent thread about building a NAS from a Power Mac and I thought the article may help instigate a healthy conversation about hard drive brands.

    I'm a Hitachi guy. What's your opinion?

    Western Digital.

    Hitachi, Fujitsu and Toshiba have all died premature deaths on me.

    +1 to WD drives, I've had many over the years and they've all been excellent.

    Actually come to think of it I've never had a drive die on me, even the 40mb Conner Peripherals SCSI drive made in 1990 that I have in my Mac Classic still works great.

    I run Western Digital about as much as I'm able to, I have a Seagate on the way so we'll see how she treats me.
