Never had a problem with my Hitachi's, I still have a 10 year old Hitachi running in one of my folding rigs.

Back in 2002 I think, the IBM DeskStar 60GXP was the absolute performance king, all the reviews spoke highly of it, despite being quite noisy (more than a Raptor). However, during a one year warranty period 3 have failed, while the web was full of people complaining about the same thing. After this, the IBMs have earned the DeathStar nickname, and it eventually lead IBM to sell their HDD division to Hitachi. It was quite unfortunate, because from the same series, the 40GXP and 75GXP were quite good, but the "mainstream" part failed miserably.

The good - I still have a 1995 working WD Caviar 1.2GB (came with the P1 133), a 4.3GB WD Caviar (came with a Celeron 433) and a 40GB Maxtor 5400rpm bought in 2001 for my Duron 1000 rig.

The ugly - There are two that failed: IBM's 60GXP and a Maxtor Maxline 10 SATA2 250GB toasted while being mounted on a nF3 250mobo which didn't support Maxtors.

The reason I've made this pool is to avoid this kind of thing. The Maxline 10 was the best at random access patterns, but woops, incompatible. I've seen no review to underline that, although it was a pretty common issue.

Any other ideas while we're at it?

Out of all the HDD's I had over the years, WD was best in reliance. Only 1 went bad compared to 3 dead Seagate's sitting in my closet. Go with Western Digital!

I've had a segate before and they are rock solid but I have a WD now and they are also really quiet so go with either one or the other.

WD is pulling ahead, seagate close behind. These are the most popular HDD brands and it may as well be for a good reason. I think their main characteristic is their reliability, I have seen only few that complained about that.

From the reliability point of view which one?

your observations don't take into account there are multi-selections (and mine didn't take into account the poll somehow allows for multiple votes) for the samsung and the seagate branded drives...

Hitachi DeskStar 160GB 2 8.33%
Samsung SpinPoint P 3 12.50%
Samsung SpinPoint S 3 12.50%
Seagate Cuda 7200.10 7 29.17%
Seagate Cuda 7200.9 (40GB bonus) 4 16.67%
Western Digital WD1600JS "SE" 9 37.50%

25% for samsung...
37.5% for WD
45.84% for Seagate...


Note: All of the drives in all of my systems are seagate...

Nice that somebody has noticed , but it's not quite like this. Some have voted both the seagates, so when adding up the votes it's not correct to add the votes that were posted by the same guy, wouldn't you say?

Anyway, your opinion is taken into account

*EDIT At the time of this post its 10-10 Seagate vs WD

Multiple Choice Poll. Voters: 27. You have already voted on this poll

How are you going to vote twice without multiple accounts? and if you have multiple accounts you're in violation of the ToS and you're a :turd:

What's the deal jdPrime (two votes)? The Pook (3 votes)?
