Hello, I'd like to hear people's opinion on this. I'm buying a new drive to replace my dead IBM GXP 60GB (what a crap drive!!), and it will either be WD400BB 40GB or a Seagate ST380011A 80GB. They are both priced around the same so the Seagate appears to be better value. Seagate didn't have a great reputation in the '80s I hear. I'd be very interested in what some who has about 20 years of experience to give me an idea; what they were like in the old days, what they're like now. Thanks for your help, Psyched13.
