I've also had problems with Seagate externals and Maxtors (now owned by seagate ) My Samsung F3 slave drive has been running beautifully without fault so far but it is only a few months old.

I was using a Western Digital 640GB Blue Caviar and that has been a great drive.

Needed more space so I purchased 2x 1TB Samusung F3 (HD103SJ) drives about two weeks ago. Looking at reviews they where getting good comments and for just over £40 for 1TB I thought they were a good price. One is noisey on power up (clunking sound) so might have to return it (machine is on 24/7). Otherwise happy with the Samsung drives.Wish I had noticed the noise before setting them up in raid and installing everything. As being in a raid setup makes it a little more difficult to remove. It has not put me off buying Samsung again.

Samsungs are fast, Seagates are trash, WDs are tanks.

Go for a decent Western, I've been using them for years and I've NEVER had one fail on me.
Terrific company.

Seagate are nice hard drives, never had one fail. But WD have some nice high end hard drives. I'm using a 500gb blue right now

Samsung I never used, but I may in the future
