Windows 7: Which Hard Drive to buy???

22 Dec 2009   #11

Win7 Enterprise, Win7 x86 (Ult 7600), Win7 x64 Ult 7600, TechNet RTM on AMD x64 (2.8Ghz)

I have had just about all the different brands over the years. Every once in a while you get a bad one !

In the past 6 months I have bought several Samsung & Hitachi 1tb HD's from NewEgg.

All have been working just fine so far. I like WD & Seagate HD's also.

I usually go for what is on SALE at the time.

Best of Luck

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 RTM + SP1

I have one to say with Hitachi's and even Maxtor's.

Heard through the grape vine, Hitachi and Maxtor are programmed to die when the warranties run out.

But thats what i have heard.

I can assure you that I have seen many a Maxtor drive which has outlived it's warranty. I think the grapevine in this case has failed you.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

I have a Samsung F3 1TB and it's a great drive and I got it on offer from Overclockers.
This is my 4th Samsung and they've all been great.
On the other hand I agree with doc. Get the best deal that's around
