That narrows the players, hope the prices go back down to where they were a few months ago.

I never owned either a Samsung or Hatchi hard drive, but reducing the number of contenders is never good news for buyers.

There's still Toshiba who recently acquired Fujitsu's hard drive business for notebook and external drives.

However, Seagate is still the powerhouse is the business now have acquired both Maxtor and Samsung's hard drive divisions.

I used to like Maxtors...until Seagate bought them out.

Essentially a global duopoly. A fair chance you could kiss goodbye to competition?

Hitachi was the only Hard Drive Manufacture that I had no issues with.
