    Question Can you recommend a good internal Hard drive?
    Hi. Can anyone recommend a good serial ATA hard drive for a Powermac G5? 400-500 GB, or so. To be used as a 2nd internal drive for video editing.
    Thanks.

    I highly recommend Seagate products. Performance among 3.5" SATA hard drives doesn't vary significantly, so my chief consideration is how much confidence the manufacturer has in their product. The warranty length makes that evident. I believe Seagate is the only manufacturer offering a 5 year warranty on all of their products. They also tend to be extremely quiet. Check out the ST3500641AS-RK with NCQ (native command queuing). It runs around $150.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    JUST bought 2 of these today for my G5. They come with a 5yr Warranty and are mega cheap.

    From what I hear they are the perfect 2nd drive like your looking for.

    Goodluck, and I will post what type of performance I get from them in the next few days if you still haven’t picked up a new drive.

    Macsales has a 500GB 7200RPM Maxtor drive for $99. I was considering buying 2 of them for a G5 upgrade project I'm planning... Ya might want to check those out if you're still looking.
