Hey guys ... I think I'm beginning to have hard drives issues, so I'm looking to get a new one ... and was wondering what's the preference?

something like this:
500GB 2.5" Seagate Momentus 7200.4 7200RPM... (ST9500420AS) at OWC

or an Hitachi:
500GB 2.5" Hitachi Travelstar 5K500.B 5400RPM... (0A57915) at OWC

then there's Toshiba, or WD ...

opinions are greatly appreciated ...

thanks!

Both are good drives. Personally, I would go for the Seagate as it's faster and Seagate generally has good customer support and warranties. I don't have any experience with Hitachi replacement drives but folks in this forum seem to like them.

Regards.

I have the Seagate from OWC and it performs like a champ.
