I'm usually very much a SCSI person, but I picked up two IBM Deskstars
from Egghead auction in the last few months. The 15G was ~$110, and the
20.3G was ~$180, both 7200RPM UDMA/66. They're fast, quiet, and seem to
have a positive reputation in the field.
Of course, if I were to buy something now it'd probably be the 47G
Seagate from CSC. $695 and they throw in a free external case! (Full
height drive, UW-SCSI) Ooohhhh...
