    movies, music, and games. i have a 100gb+20gb and ive filled them up countless times(had to burn files to disc to make more room on the hd's).

    i wouldnt mind getting one but i set a limit for my self...spend ~$100 max on any computer component.

    seagate is probably the most reliable and best quality hd you can purchase.

    i have owned samsung, maxtor, ibm, hitachi/ibm, western digital, and seagate. the seagate was by far the best, good deal by the way but if your looking for online deals go to www.newegg.com or www.pricewatch.com.
