Good to see that sammy's are holding their own, still.
I've practically bought samsung HDD's since the 500GB's (and I have 500, 750, 1000, 1500 & 2000GB drives).. They all seem to still be running fine.
If it wasn't for a recent deal on Seagate 2TB hdd's, I'd be samsung all the way
I'm also exempting laptops, which come with whichever oem is selling cheapest shortly before assembly time.
