    Western Digital. I've yet to use a LaCie drive that hasn't failed unexpectedly.

    I have 2 WD caviar green 2tb. I've had them for about a year with no problems. One was DOA but i sent it back and they replaced it free of charge. i would wait a little while if you could to let prices subside from flooding

    Prices went up quite a bit partially due to the tsunami in Japan. Manufacturing was then outsourced to plants in Thailand and production was doubled... but someone brilliant decided to build these plants in a valley shaped like a bowl, then Thailand had a flood wiping out THOSE plants. Western Digital and several other hard drive manufacturers lost millions. Pretty awesome situation.
