I got 4 500 gb Western Digital HD 3.0gb 16 mb cache...but my mac pro went crazy when i put them in . I dont know if it because of the hd or something was wrong with my new mac pro.

Is there anybody using these drives out there with the mac pro???

I am probably going to take these back...any suggestions what to get. I think I will stick with the drive that apple sends me as my system drive but get 3 additional drives. What do you suggest???

A 4 500 Western Digital HD? Sounds kinda slow to me like the type they put into laptops.

I would personally go with Seagate, myself.

Other World Computing, for example.

Seagate is the only company with a 5 year warranty of its hard drives. Hitachi? I wouldn't know, quite frankly. Maybe someone else has an opinion...

Just click on the link I posted. Look at the Seagates, it's a matter of which size you'd want, really.

I also recommend Seagate drives. I don't rely on WD drives to store any important data whatsoever...

Hitachi has been making some excellent drives lately, but I would still go Seagate hands down. Just get 4 of the Barracuda 7200.10 500GB 16MB drives and you will be flying, or 4 of the 750GB 16MB drives if you can afford it...

PowerMac G3 B&W 350MHz/1GB/DVD-RW/Adaptec 39160 2X Seagate 36GB 15k RAID0
Dell E521 AMD X2 4600+/2GB/7600GT/320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10
