It looks like my HD is failing me & it's only around 5-6 yrs. old. I've never lost a HD before & it's a Seagate.

Which brand name do you find to be the best & most reliable?

Thanks

Just about any of the major manufacturers have good drives. Of course they all have bad ones too. Best thing to do is look for reviews on the drive model you want to buy to make sure it has good reviews. Don't be dismayed by a few bad reviews that say the drive was DOA this is typical across the board with any drive manufacturer that some drives just don't make it. As long as there are a good number of positive reviews it is probably a good product.

Personally I tend to gravitate towards Western Digital and Hitachi since I have had luck with them in the past.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I like Western Digital, they are pretty reliable
In the beginning there was the command line.

Oh, the shop who's going to do the work has Seagate plus they have a longer warranty.

I didn't like the fact that I was on hold twice (2 different depts.) for 30 minutes each time not to mention the time spent with the person, but they are ok, right?

I've used both, SeaGate and Western Digital. Both have been very reliable.

Western Digital is known to be more reliable than others.

I am currently using a Hitachi in my laptop, and it's been running fine for about 3 years now.

Just make sure you do your research before purchasing a new HD.
