I love both Seagate and Western Digital, so it comes down to what's available for what price at the moment of purchase. I've tended towards Seagate lately. However, I really, really want a WD Raptor

Sorry if this is considered necro posting I have 5 of those brands actually (in different computers, I have 6 older computers. NOTE these are all IDE drives....

I'll list were each brand of drive is...

I have one Western Digital 80GB in my main computer

One Seagate Barracuda 120GB in my main computer

One Maxtor 20GB in my Pentium 3

One Seagate Barracuda 20GB in my Pentium 4

I also have a Hitachi Deskstar 1TB external drive

Oh, and there was a brand I have that wasn't listed in the poll... Fujitsu it's in my Pentium 1 MMX (it's a 16GB drive split in half since that computer's BIOS can't read a disk over the size of 13GB)

Also not in the poll: Toshiba.

(Don't get the 1TB Toshiba 2.5inch SATA for your laptop -- it won't fit because it's 12.5mm high not 9.5mm high.)

The poll was somewhat misleading, since IBM and Quantum are no longer making hard drives.

As a computer builder, the worse drives I ever used were WD's. If you do have an RMA with one, you'll get a rebuilt drive back, not a new one.

The last one I got back from WD was so scratched up, it looked like someone had kicked it across a cement floor. It only lasted one month, in service, before it shot craps. NO MORE WD's for this old tech.

I use mostly Seagate/Maxtor drives, but recently I got a great deal on a Samsung 1 terrabyte drive (SATA II) and I'm lovin' it. It's fast, quiet and does not heat up like the WD's used to.

My Dell XPS 15 has a Seagate and my Acer 5532 has a WD. I have an Hitachi in an external case.
