Fry's Electronics, OfficeMax, Office Depot, Staples, or Best Buy
because of their 100% money back guarantees (I don't know about Circuit
City's policy, which recently changed), unlike CompUSA, which charges
15% on opened packages (sometimes whether they were really opened or
not). Fry's is often the cheapest, after rebate, but either Staples or
OfficeMax occasionally offer a drive for a really low prices without a
rebate.

Seagates offer the longest standard warranties, 5 years for internal
desktop drives, and they're about the quietest, and their hottest chips
don't seem to get as hot as those in some other brands (I don't know
about Western Digitals because their chips are on the inner side of
the circuit board).

I've read that, but they're not available locally, at least not for the
usual $50 for a 120GB model. How much more do Samsungs cost?
Dont cost any more than Seagates usually.

Yes, one downside with samsungs is that they
are harder to find operations selling them.

And they dont have the largest sizes currently either,
current max is in theory 250G but I can only currently
find the 200G drives. Seagate has a 400G but its pretty
lousy value in $/GB and they have had the 250G available
for quite a bit longer than Samsung has.
