Western Digital is my favorite. I've used maxtor hard drives in the past but they got bought out by seagate which is an alright brand. Samsung is also a good brand.

I would need to agree with that. Segate wins it for me, but I'll take a WD drive, if the specs are the same, and it's cheaper.

You really can't go wrong with any of the major players. Seagate, Western Digital, Samsung and Hitachi are all producing good, reliable drives these days.

Umm I think my Seagate is slightly faster than my Western Digital but there both good harddrives. More of a personal preference.
