Arrow Which Hard Drives Brand do you go for?

For 3.5" hard drives, SATA/PATA.

Hitachi (3 Years)
Maxtor (3 Years)
Seagate (5 Years)
Samsung (3 Years)
Western Digital (3 Years, 5 Years for Raptors)

For me:
Seagate>Hitachi>Western Digital>Samsung>Maxtor.

Using HGST since started buying HDD. Recently started using Maxtor

2.5" HDD seems to be dominated by Samsung.

because Samsung 2.5" HDDs are almost noiseless... my notebook with the MP0402H startup and during usage is noiseless except when the optical drive is spinning...
and also all Samsung 2.5" & 3.5" HDDs are ALL 3-Years One-to-One exchange warranty
i 4C samsung HDD 2b da nxt popularly used HDD in due time .. as they r basically quiet during operation & so far i used one 2.5" myslf + i recommend 2 3.5" HDD to my clients .. so far no complaints
