I go through Western Digital drives like tissues during pollen season. They make crap drives. After a few months of use, they start in with a high pitched whining sound and they drive me nuts. I\'m about to replace my fifth drive under warranty, a 120gig 8mb cache model which started up with the whining last week. A 60 gig warranty replacement drive, which I just noticed was \"refurbished\", recently died with no warning whatsoever, too, so now I\'m waiting on a replacement for a replacement, and I\'m furious that they\'d ship refurbished hard drives in the first place. And if you\'re curious, I have cooling fans on the drives and I upped the power supply to a 430W. Still have problems with them. Avoid WD like the plague...just my experience. I have a few friends that swear by the Seagates and will follow suit with the Fluid Bearing Drives from now on.
