    IBM/Hitachi vs WD?

    My E: drive (dedicated sample drive) crashed.
    It was a Maxtor 120gig.

    One month over warranty. No more Maxtor for me.

    The WD and IBM/Hitachi are the same price, but the WD has a 3-year warranty.

    Which is better?

    I code named my old IMB deskstar hard drive the deathstar. That tells you all you need to know about it. Joking aside, they USED to have a good reputation, but it seems to have been marred recently. I have have been very happy with every WD and Seagate hard drive I\'ve bought and WD seems to be very innovative and forward thinking with their 10k RPM Sata drives.

    Had 1 WD JB drive that crashed after a year or so, but generally I like the WD drives, and Seagate. Either way get the 8mb cache versions. Pretty cheap.
