I have had one Maxtor 160GB failure (Maxtor is one of the Seagate brands), worked fine for about a year.

Also recent 7200.11 series of Seagate drives were all broken because of fauly firmware.

Western Digital drives always worked for me reliably, I currently also own Hitachi 7200 3.5" 160GB and this one also works ok.

I would stick away from desktop Seagate series, but mobile ones seem to be not affected by desktop series problems (like firmware).

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.
