    In my years in computing, the only reliable hard drive brands are SEAGATE & WESTERN DIGITAL, hence their 5-YEAR warranty!

    :-D

    Comet have an offer, 1TB Western Digital £89.99, or you could try Currys or PC World.

    Good Luck.

    I'd always trusted Seagate - but we had a dodgy batch recently. 10/12 failed. I also used to rate Maxtor, but now I believe they are part of the Seagate brand....
