Seagate, Wd, Hitachi, Ohmy

Well, i've searched the forums and still can't make up my mind. I thought I was going to go seagate for my new SATA HD (thinking of getting a 120gb), with plans later to purchase a second and set up RAID 0.

 

I'm leaning towards the Hitachi, but my case temps kinda suck and I think i'd rather have a cooler drive. Are the Hitachi's really that much hotter? Should I go with another brand?

 

Suggestions?

I like IBM/Hitachi deskstars. Never had any problems with them and they have always been fast and quiet. They did botch the 75GXP drives, but I never had any of those. My 5 year old 35GXPs in my k6-2 450 still run fine and all the other deskstars I've bought sisnce have been just as problem free.

from what i've read, the drive's have really turned around their quality control. Fast, reasonably quiet, and well-priced. Everyone has something bad to say about each company. It just looks like hitachi is on its way up and that they produce quality drives now. What happened in the past, i hope stays in the past.

 

However, do people think that Hitachi drives are no good NOW?
