This is bound to start a holy war similar to the vi (yeah!) vs. emacs
(boo!) one. I have yet to find a HD manufacturer that everyone can
agree on. Personally, I've had good experience with Maxtor for IDE
drives. Also, IMHO, great people can make up for a failed drive. I had
a Western Digital drive fail, and called in to get a replacement. This
happened to be on my birthday. I got the drive the next day, and it's
manufacturing date was my birthday. So, I now have a WD drive that was
made on my 20th birthday. Besides, if anyone counts on a hard drive to
not fail, they're nuts. We all know that HD's fail, regardless of
manufacturer. This is (part of the reason) why we back things up.
