    I'm considering upgrading my #1 machine.
    It currently has two 500gig drives. I've been looking at 2tb drives.
    I've been a long time fan of maxtor, but I see they merged with seagate.
    From my experience in the older days before a gigabyte drive was even
    considered, seagate drives had a tendancy to belly up in less than a year.
    While the maxtor's lasted forever.

    What's your "expert" opininion on say the "barracuda" brand from seagate?
    Are they long term reliable?

    The barracuda drive is a good one...

    but with any mfg the drive will die sooner or later
    so no matter what you do...back everything up


    Maybe two different drived from two mfgs' ?
