I need to buy a cheap 2TB for my home server. Te drive needs to be reliable, cheap and have loads of space. So far I narrowed down my search to the two in the title. Both are cheap and big, I just need to know which is more reliable (important, I intend on using them for next 7 years). Please discuss and advise.
I started researching it in relation to linux, and it sounds like you can get them to work if you are on good terms with g-parted, and can use the manual mode. Of course with linux you can expect the support to arrive before too long.
