    Here are a few articles that may help, I don't really use external HDD but I doubt there is serious differences in quality from the major brands (WS, Maxtor, Seagate, etc..)

    Well, if you don't consider the loss of your data serious, there aren't.

    I trust Hitachi.

    I prefer Seagate myself... Haven't had any problems with them yet. I've seen way too many WDD and Maxtor fail in my A+ Comp Tech class, and I've had my own experiences with Maxtor failures. Hitachi is alright... although I don't really trust some of their laptop HDD products, seen too many overheats with those.

    Nothing is safe, it's better to have a space harddrive with all your valuable data just in case there is a problem with the original one. It better be safe than regreting later

    The thing is that these are used by the manufacturers the most, so there may arise an illusion that they break up more often. However, at our high school, there were constantly heaps (literally) of dead WD drives. So I wouldn't make decisions yet. I'm using a redundant array and burn my work on DVDs.
