Western Digital, Seagate and Hitachi are the only drives i use.

WD 250GB, 160GB

Hitachi 40GB, 80GB

Seagate 160GB, 40GB

Laptops have IBM Travelstars in them though...no getting around it ATM.

Seagates mostly. 5 yr warranty is nice and I've had decent experiences with them. I wouldn't hesitate to buy Maxtor either, especially now that Seagate owns them.

I've owned Western Digitals (I love my Passport) als0, and can't complain. Seagate gets preference, though.

Two Samsungs on the older machine, that does not like to many partitions on big IDE disks, 120 + 250 GB

Two Seagate ST 340062, taken out of Maxtor Basics Personal Storage 3200. Were cheaper than similar internal IDE drives at that time.

Several USB2 drives, including a HDD media player

A couple of years ago I would have said Western Digital but now I have to say Seagate. I'm currently running four Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3750330AS drives in this system.

I agree. Its a big mix for me too. I now use Maxtor ATA and WD SATA at home, and at work its Seagate and WD.

I've got 1 Hitachi and 1 Maxtor in my main PC

BUT, my Server has a two Seagates in it and my laptop's drive just has a HP sticker on it (but I think HP use Western Digital anyway!?! ... please correct me if I'm wrong)
