  underworldmagic 15:45 12 Oct 2004


I need some guidance on which hard drive i should get. i need a hard drive for running windows and programs and another for storage downloading etc.

i want the windows drive to be fast so i have thought of getting a Raptor 74GB and im not sure which other drive i should get, i want it to be no less than 250GB.

give me yor views on

Maxtor Drives??
any Western Digital drives you recommend??

I currently have a 250GB Western Digital Caviar WD2500JD, im going to return this because im getting SMART error readings upon bootup.

which hard drive would you recommend? i will be using the computer for high end Adobe programs photoshop, premiere, illustrator, encore and others.

i would like the drives to be not too loud and of a good performance and HAVE to be reliable. i leave my computer switched on, for processing/rendering video files so need one which can withstand constant use.

also tell me what you think of the raptor 74GB im terms of noise level and performance.

by the way im using the SATA interface
