    my IBM 60GXP is starting to die on me again, about a year after being RMA'd, so now i have to find my self a new hard drive (then flog off the new rma'd drive i get back from IBM on ebay :D)

    so what should i get (nothing IBM)?

    ive had a quick think and i'm leaning towards the Western digital 80GB w/ 8mb cache. any one have any other suggestions?

    The WD drives with the 8MB cache are still about the best on the market. If I had a need for a new drive today, that is the one I would get for my own rig. :)

    I wouldn't look back after my JB series WD Andy as it's just so blindingly fast. :thumb:

    If this were a new problem, then I might have some understanding for the IBM Corporation, but this has been an ongoing problem with this series of drive. And to make matters worse, they do everything they can to keep to publically taking responsibility for their crappy hardware. Sad to say, but it will be a long time to come before I ver give this company another dime of my hard earned money again. :(
