Which harddisk to choose?
I'm considering buying a new Harddisk since my current one is silently dying (old maxtor 40gb).
Which of these 3 brands can you recommend?

Price/service/rma - and return warranty turn around time: WD beats them all.
The worst IBM or now Hitachi Global.

Seagate is the one for me.
WD has this very high pitched noise that drives me nuts. But it's above the hearing range for most people (sucks for me).
Maxtor is close second best, if price is a higher concern.
Seagate is quiet, reliable, just not as fast as the rest. But it comes close enough.
Put brain in gear BEFORE engaging mouth.
