    I've heard all your whining
    All this talk behind my back
    The time is coming
    The time is now for our attack
    A new sun rising
    A new one in your world of black
    Don't try to stop this
    You will break like glass

    I've only used JB series WD's for the last few years now and none have had any probs.

    i recently just bought a seagate 120 gig 8meg buffer for 65 very good and i cant hear it at all, i think the 80 is just as gud.

    also my friends WD 80gig 8meg drive has just died after 6months so :thumbs do

    I also prefer the WD JB series, but Maxtor and Seagate also make similar drives now that I've had fairly good experience with.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I'd try here under HARDDRIVES http://www.pricewatch.com/.

    I seen a 160GB 8mb cache Maxtor harddrive at Office Depot on sale for $90 US, but that was after a mail-in rebate. If you don't mind mail-in rebates then I'm sure you could find a bunch of good 8 mb cache harddrives at local stores for $90 since usually a place like Office Depot is a little higher priced than most any other big chain store.

    Oh yeah, and as far as what brand to get, I personally think all major HD brands are about the same speed and quality as long as you get a 8mb buffer and the newer drives of every brand I've tried are pretty much wisper quite. WD use to be known for loud harddrives but their newest models aren't too bad, so I think you'd be pleased with one of those if thats the brand you're really leaning toward.

    Seagate is very nice :thumb:
    Got mine overseas, and been using for 2-3 years now, 60GB. No troubles at all. Didn't have to worry bout it getting knocked around in luggage.
