I'd go for a Western Digital or Seagate.

If you can ask Newegg and find out which hard drive is being used in it, it might not be that bad. Generally these cases will use a well known hard drive and those are ok.

Also make sure that the hard drive is new and not refurbished.

It will be fine, there are very limited number of hard drive manufacturers and they are all good products. Also, it appears to get great reviews from the newegg buyers.

if your unsure brandwise take a look at:

Only like 5 bucks more and a well known brand and you know it has a western digital hard drive.
