Had enough with both Seagate and WD producing the most horrid external drives. Seagate drives, all 4 of them, have died on me. WD seems to have some sort of rootkit on their drive I can't seem to get rid of either, so done with them too.
Any 1.5+, (hoping 2TB) that are decent? Looked on Newegg and the results so far seem less than favorable. Would getting an enclosure and building myself be a better idea? If so, which brand of HD and enclosure would be best suited?

Western Digital Caviar Blacks 2x1TB for the internals.
For external you can try Buffalo/Lacie. But frankly WD makes one of the best external HDD's as well.
You can get your own enclosure , and any SATA drive. Newegg sells enclosures and hard drives,
