  • What internal HDD brand do you use?

    I just finished replacing the stock HDD in my G4. It was giving me errors and ****************, so I figured I'd better replace it before it dies and I lose all of my music. So, I went out and bought a 160 GB (the one I was replacing was an 80) Western Digital.

    I always buy WD, as I've always had problems with everything else; typically, it's the "died one week after warr. expired" routine.

    So, I open up my G4 and pull the old drive (which is almost exactly 53 weeks old!) and what do I discover? SEAGATE!!!1 Bah...

    Now I have 2 WD Caviars in there. The other is a 3 year old 80 GB that hasn't had a problem yet.

    Anyone with similar experiences? I hate Seagate. I'm impartial to Maxtor. I use WD religiously.

    Me,too. Both drives are WDs.

    I've never had an HD croak on me yet ( touch wood).

      It doesn't happen often, but nearly everytime it has happened to me it was a Seagate. Once I got a WD that was DOA, but it wasn't a huge issue-- after all, there wasn't anything on it yet.

        Segate has been better than Maxtor for me. I must agree that Western Digital has been a lot better for wear and tear.

          I love my Seagate Barracuda ATA IV. Not had good luck with Maxtor, and little experience with WD.
