Used to use all Hitachi drives.. But now I'm using all WD drives.

Would have stuck to HGST, but since I got a Raptor and I want all my drives to be the same brand, naturally I changed my storage drives to WD as well.

It doesn't really bother me much even though WD's performance might not be always at the top because I use 7200rpm drives solely for my storage and all my apps are run from the Raptor.

If I have to choose a drive from scratch at this point of time, I'll pick the WD 4000KD though.
