[Reccomendation needed] The best HDD brand for laptops is...

Hi there people!

I'm planning on replacing my current HDD in my laptop, currently I have a WD Scorpio Blue 250 GB SATA-II 5400 RPM... I'm trying to go after something, of 500 GB and 7200 RPM (something faster than 5400)... Which brand is the best for you guys, or at least, which would you recommend?

Thanks for your answers

See ya!!!

Here is a list of 7200 RPM laptop drives at Newegg. If you can't order from Newegg, you can at least use this list for reference purposes:

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Hard Drives, Laptop Hard Drives, 7200 RPM

I'd generally lean toward Western Digital or Samsung.

Western Digital is the best choice. Number one priority of a HDD is dependability, and WD is the most reliable.

Wow... I guess WD won the match with a flwless victory XD...

Well... then I'll go for a WD seems that Scorpio Black is the best choice. Thanks for the answers guys, that's why I always ask for this kind of stuff here

Well, I've had 2 WD drives fail within about a year, this was 4-5 years ago. Since then I have used both Samsung and Seagate. After the bad 7200-1 Seagate line, they seem to be "back". My Pc drive is Seagate and I have one in an enclosure. A WD in a laptop.
