See <A HREF="http://www.tomshardware.com/storage/200311141/index.htm..." target="_new"> this link</A> for a recent THG review. The winner was Hitachi, but only with a small margin. The IBM deskstar has had a lot of problems recently but appearently they have it under control now (btw any major brand has had its problems). Seagate was the quietest, followed by Maxtor. In my opinion they're all good.
why do people still complain about 2 years old problem with IBM drives. Even though mine died after 2 years of hard working, I still am buying IBM drives caz they are the quickest out there. What is the problem with IBMs now? Old issues? Is that has to be mentioned each and every time some one opens a mouth to yack about IBM?
Are you still telling your new employer at the interview about being late 2 years ago, but apperently you are timely person, so "just give me a chance"?
What is the point of saying about IBM drives being bad 2 years ago? I just can't get that. WD has problems now, so what, no body complaining
IBMs are simply the best - were and are and I think will be.
..this is very useful and helpful place for information...
