Hitachi Travelstar 7K100
“Storagereview.com”:http://www.storagereview.com/articles/leaderboard.html says the Hitachi Travelstar 7K100 is the nicest drive around. I need yet another one because my homebrew ASUS M3p seems to eat drives for breakfast. I’ve lost two so far. I think that notebook doesn’t do a good job of handling shocks. In any case for a mere $107 or so I’m back in business. “Pricegrabber”:http://storagereview.pricegrabber.com/search_getprod.php/masterid=12462194/sort_type=bottomline has them for $107 while “mpire”:http://mpire.com/Hitachi_Travelstar_7K100_100_GB_ATA_100_Hard_Drive-p-27587769.htm has them for $113 currently.
If you have a later notebook which uses SATA rather than PATA, then Western Digital has just launched a 250GB (!!!) drive in notebook form. Wow, that’s amazing storage.
