Well I always shop for my computer needs on Newegg. And when it comes time for me to get a hard drive I look at the reviews/storage capacity/price and see what I can get for the best bang for my buck. I always try to stick to WD and Seagate though. Right now I've been using Seagate and I haven't had any problems.
Which is your favorite hard drive brand and why?
Personally I am a avid fan and user of WD so that makes it my favorite brand.
To me, it is reliable and stable. Pricing wise is reasonable.
