Hi guyz & Girlz,

Please could u give feedback on which hard drive is the the best in performance and durability.

ATA and SATA. No SCSI

Thanks

for all current models, SATA can be faster in a few years time if the disk's spinig speed is improved in a few years time. What really hold back of HDD's performance is the spinning speed, not communication speed (SATA: 150mb/s, ATA 133mb/s).

reliability, not really much different between different maker because all of them are very reliable, but HDD do fail from time to time

Hi, I like 'Maxtor', the software for transferring data between disks is first class. Good Luck for 2005 Cheers, Bill

I only use Maxtor HDDs. I use SCSI but here is a link to Ebuyer and Maxtor HDDs.
