I voted WD since I still have the original Raptors running strong.

However, I don't have any particular brand loyalty in the hard drive market - I look for value.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:
