    I have a Quantum Fireball 6.4 gig, don't know the product code, but I LOVE the drive.
    It is definetley the quitest drive I've ever used, I can't hear it at all now I've got a few case fans installed. I haven't had any troubles with bad sectors etc, the drive is fast and I would reccomend it to anyone getting a new HD. Good value too.

    That's a really good choice for a drive. They were tested a while back and the results from every hardware site that tested them were fantastic. I suggest you go ahead and get yourself one.

    You can also check out the Seagate Barracuda. They used to be all on the SCSI interface but have just released the better and newer EIDE versions... it's worth the look. I've opted to get a Seagate over the Quantum because I've been using Seagate from day one and haven't had a problem since.

    I've got that drive, and my only complaint (I really like it) is that it is loud. I can't sleep with my computer running because of it.

    I have the 13.8Gb PlusKA in my spare machine. Excellent drive. Very, very fast. Noisy as sin when accessing, but it's worth it.
