I would still just go for the Seagates. My Maxtor gave up after two 
years, but generally I have good luck with Maxtor.
  I stay away from WD simply because there is always a pile of 
them(busted) in any PC shop.
IBM/hitachi are ok but quirky (internal sleeping :no good for video)
I have two 80 gig Seagates and an 80 gig IBM in my QS. All things being 
equal, get a barracuda.
