hehe.. ibm's drives a hella fast, but also have a hella high failure rate. lol, some company is sueing ibm for advertising the 75gxp range as a "reliable storage solution" cos they reckon it's false advertising!

I would personally recommend Maxtor.

As Proze points out, the IBM GXP's are very good in performance but do have a failure rate perhaps higher than average. I think that they do not like being overclocked on the FSB.

Maxtor drives are my drive of choice for four reasons :
[list=1][*]Value[*]Quality[*]Speed[*]Ability to overclock to high FSB's[/list=1]
