Seagate Momentus hard drives provide the optimum combination of performance, capacity and mobility in a 2.5-inch form factor. They are also a good fit in certain non-PC applications, including external storage, copiers/printers and entry-level blade servers.
Seagate Momentus 500GB Notebook drive
Pros: Price was decent on sale. Wouldn't pay more than this for a 5400 RPM drive. Warranty is good
Cons: Still a little pricey for a slower notebook drive. Hopefully prices will come down more. About the same specs as everyone else's 5400 RPM drives.
Other Thoughts: Got this on sale when the price first came down to use in an external USB 2.0 housing I picked up. Just something to carry around to move files. Works in that regard, which is about all 5400 RPM drives are good for, even for laptops.

Nothing special at all
Pros: Drive doesn't fail. 5 year warranty. Not excessively loud, or power thirsty.
Cons: Not superficially faster than the previous generation of Seagates. Firmware from 2006! Thanks Seagate
Other Thoughts: I went from a 320gb third generation seagate to this guy here and the difference was truly disappointing. I was initially under the assumption that this was a fifth generation seagate, when in fact its only the fourth with an extended warranty (if this is wrong, please reply to me).

Pros: Probably the first drive I've bought in years that is actually quiet. It is as fast as one would expect from a modern SATA-II hd.
Cons: Price is among the highest for the spec, normally I would not have paid so much but I found it on sale at a store where I happened to have gift cards.
Other Thoughts: Works great with my Iodd PVR.
