Its a 2.5" hard drive. I think that the brand doesn't matter, I think that the current 2.5" drives only go up to 320GB or 500. It's a SATA drive

Brand wise I would go for the one that has the longer warranty IE Seagate 5 years Vs. Western digitals 3 years.

I don't remember what the warranty on the 500 GB Samsung HDDs >_<"

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

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!
