I haven't been in the hardware market for a while so I'm wondering if
there are any real winners or losers amongst hard drive makers.
It's amazing how terrabyte drives are now reasonably priced. Right now
the ones that seem to be aggressively priced are the Seagate
Barracuda, Western Digital Caviar Black, and Samsung Spinright. Also
on the market are entries by Maxtor and Hitachi.
Is there a real preference out there? Does any brand really stand out?
Do any really fall behind? Reliability, of course, is at least as much
a factor as performance, and noise also matters.
Any suggestions are welcome.
