What is the most reliable hard drive brand for a pc computer?

What is the most reliable hard drive BRAND for a pc computer? When I mean reliable, I mean longer lasting, and great performance. Could it be a Western Digital? O.o?

Joel's right; there isn't really a "most reliable" choice, though you could do worse than Western Digital. For you, the most important statistic is going to be "MTBF", which means "mean time between failures". Secondarily, you should be very keen on making sure that the hard drive has a 5 year (not 1 year) warranty. Most ATA/SATA hard drives have only a 1 to 3 year warranty, with the vast majority only having 1 year. To the best of my knowledge, only high-end, high performance ATA/SATA hard drives have a 5 year warranty. SCSI, FC (fibre channel), and SAS (Serial Attached SCSI, the successor to SCSI) hard drives ordinarily have 5 year warranties.

Although SCSI-based hard drives usually have much longer warranties, there is no modern data to support the claim that they are of higher reliability; in fact, studies show that they are of roughly equal reliability.

So, in the end, I would advise you to make sure that your chosen hard drive has a lengthy warranty and above-industry-average MTBF.

Conventional wisdom says that Seagate makes the best SCSI drives, while Western Digital makes the best SATA drives.
