Thread Starter 
I have been eyeballing

Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB SATA2 5400rpm 32 MB Hard Drive HD204UI/Z4

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152245

Does anyone have any recommendations for 2TB hard drives?

I am using it as a media storage hard drive.

Thanks.

Love my Sammeh 2GB F4 as well (great storage drive).

Samsung HDD got bought out by Seagate though, so just something to think about (not trying to say that's bad or good, just saying).
If it weren't for all the rave reviews of it (the F4), I suppose I'd have gone w/ a WD 2TB Green drive.

WD Greens tend to make good sotrage drives.
But I recommend a Samsung drive over a WD any day.

Samsung all the way. WD cav greens are in 2nd.

off topic: I wonder if SeaGate will make drives just as legendary as the F3s now that they have Samsung. Can't wait to see something like that happen.
