    Seagate's also have only 1 year warranty. I have 2 of 120 Ghz running
    with no problems. My benchmarks in HDTach are not very far below those
    of the 36 Gig Raptors that I've seen, with alot more storage space. I
    haven't seen any marks on Maxtor drives yet.

    Depending on which model drive you buy, Seagate may offer a 3 year
    warranty. Check their website for details.

    go for the new WD 74Gb 10,000RPM drives if you can afford it.

    otherwise Maxtor is a good choice

    I saw that both WD and Maxtor have 3 years on the 120 (and above I
    think). Hitachi only had 1 year. I didn't check Seagate but Rob has
    120s and said 1 year.

    The Seagate 160MB SATA drive has a three year warrantee. The
    Seagate's are also the only drives <200 MB that are native SATA, and
    PATA with a converter chip.
