I use Seagates, as some WDs don't lock, whereas every Seagate I've installed locks. Also, the WDs don't seem to be able to display the HDD Temp, which is a feature of EvoX +3921 I've heard good things about Samsung HDDs, too.

[EDIT] I don't really like Maxtors much, but I haven't tried one in ages.
