i chose WD since thats what i have running the OS in 3 of my computers.
my server has a samsung 1TB for OS and a bunch of seagate 1.5TBs
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.

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)

Not really. In fact we had so many threads about Seagates getting bricked that we created a subforum for those types of threads:

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)

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.
