My vote goes to IBM - Anything but Western Digital (I've crashed three of them lately, two because of pci speeds(I suspect) and one because of heat (oops))

I agree with D|sElMiNk, my IBM and Seagate is alot better than the WD's i've used...
Have crashed some WD even without having OC'ed anything...

I found that my Seagate drive (17.2GB Medalist) was absolutely crap at overclocking - that is, if I remember right...

Mind you, that was the cheapest type of Seagate drive you could get, so I did I expect?

let me refine my advice... i agree w/ USS.. if you're going to get a Seagate Medalist you're gonna get crappy overclocking, but on the other hand, if you get a Barracuda or a Cheetah then you're set

Seagate Baracuda ATA66 20gb
Quantum Fireball KA - 18gb

Both rock ! ! ! No problems, great drives!

Also external box with Quantum Bigfoot TA Great big and really stable.

My vote goes to Quantam, their 7200 drives really rock!
