    I'm tempted to buy a new storage hard drive.
    Budget? 80us$ max.
    Actually I have 3 wdc blue drives without any complain, but I could give a try to another brand or model. If I buy it will be at amazon so these are the options:

    WDC Green: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002ZCXK0I/?tag=tec06d-20
    Seagate Barracuda Green: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004CCS266/?tag=tec06d-20
    Samsung Spinpoint F4EG: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0042SGDVG/?tag=tec06d-20
    Hitachi Deskstar CoolSpin: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004E9SGO0/?tag=tec06d-20

    What do you think?
    Any sugestion?
    Thanks in advance.-

    My picks will be WD or Samsung, I have used both and they still haven't failed me yet (or at least, my small sample size of less than 5 HDD is not any good).
