I've always preferred WD over Seagate and Maxtor (which are just flat out horrible), but recently I must say the Samsung F series drives have been very good to me. I have two F3's and two F4's... all great.

I have heard others make favorable comments about Samsung drives, but I'm reluctant to change product lines very easily. If I have further problems with WDC, I may try them, but so far I'm satisfied with WDC.

When I first got my 1TB FAEX drives, I was quite unhappy about how noisy that they are, and when I found that 2 out of 3 of these drives that I had, had bad clusters, I was about to put WDC in the same category with Seagate. However, the 1.5TB has neither of these problems. I didn't hear a single noise from it during a 5 hour scan using HD Tune, so I will probably continue with this model for internal drives for the time being.

That was nice of WD.
