i heard western digital JB series are good
what other hdds are good?
True, because I was going to recommend them before I saw that you were asking about them
amen. i have a WD800JB and give it
I've always had luck with WD drives.
not me, i had 2 wd and 1 ibm die
I've always had great luck with maxtor drives.
I gave up listening to others recomnedations of drives. You will have one person tell you they had 2 Maxtors fail, then one person say they have had 2 WD's fail. I have Maxtors, Seagates and WD's and have yet to have any of them fail.
The only person who is correct is the one that said "I have had 400 IBM deathstars die on me"
I have had one WD 45 GB hard drive fail, but it was almost three years old. I RMA'd it to them and they sent out a 60 GB drive as a replacement. I've got no qualms against WD.
I have also built with Maxtor and Seagate without any trouble as well.
I have a WD800BB(came w/retail comp) and a WD1200JB. No complaints.
I've never had a hard drive die Maybe I'm not trying hard enough or something.
Unless it's a fiasco like it was with the IBM 75GXP series... hard drive failures are usually the cause of poor shipping .. so Maxtor, WD, and Seagate are all great brands to buy.
