    Upgrading my hard drive ... which to get?
    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 ...

    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.

    15" MBP 2.5Ghz C2D 4GB 500GB Seagate 7200RPM / 15" Powerbook G4 1.5Ghz 2GB 160GB Seagate 5400rpm
    I have the Seagate from OWC and it performs like a champ.

    awesome ... that's the one I was leaning toward, so it's good to hear I was on the right track.
