    "Jag",
    It's a matter of preference... I like to stick with what came with my PC originally (Hitachi DeskStar) Now own about "6 of em" from 360GB'sto 1TB's... I like to buy from "Directron" and "New Egg". Stay away from any hard drive that comes with some built in "Imaging software" or protection from "Romulins" ... nothing but potential problems...

    Thanks Fred;
    I've had pretty good luck with Seagate drives in the past and just wondered what the lounge thought of late.

    Yes, I've generally used tigerdirect or newegg.

    Because of the floods in Asia it can't be too long before the price of a hard disk has risen to that of a much-faster SSD...
