is the poll closed for everyone or just me?
Looks like everyone.
I've purchased a number of drives, both for work an home, in the last 3 months:
Seagate Constellation - Great business grade drive that supports some extra functionality.
Hitachi Deskstar 5k3000 - A great consumer level drive that is ~5900 RPM that I've had no problems across 3x HDD in RAID 5.
Seagate Barracuda - Genearlly my go-to drive for basic applications (single HDD PCs, simple home RAID setups, extra storage drives).
WD Raptor - I really like the switch to the 2.5" form factor, even in the 3.5" casings, drives tend to be pretty durable and last long out out of the box, 10K big+
