Best place to buy a hard drive

  Mozart 16:43 29 Apr 2003

I need a new hard drive around 20 GB.

What manufacturers do people recommend and what supplier gives best value for money?

click here Western Digital, Maxtor and Seagate are all good drives. Its probably worth paying the extra £5-£8 for a 40 gig drive rather than getting a 20 gig drive.

Just hope that it is ok when you come to install it,If not, going through their returns system is a nightmare .It could take weeks ! as it did with me .I would suggest that you go to your local dealer or even pc world .At least you will have a real person to talk to.

Don't buy a Fujitsu. I have had two fail suddenly without any warning within about 18 months. They only guarantee them for 1 year - now I know why! Maxtor guarantee theirs for 3 years.

Maxtor Guarantees there drives for a year too,
Fujitsu has stopped making drives for the home pc & IBM is selling its business to Hitachi
