Yeh, ST40000DX000 is leading leader of the pack, but ST40000DM000 takes second place to continue with tradition.
Western Digital. Just don't go for the green or any of the eco or low power options from any brand.
WD has discontinued their green Caviar brand. They now sell Black (performance drives), Blue (desktop drives), Red (NAS drives) and Purple (surveillance drives). I coupled a Black drive with a Blue drive in my new PC. (After using Seagates for many years, I thought a change would be good).
Last week I lost a 2TB Seagate (ST2000DM001) used for storing TV series on my HP Microserver. That drive was barely two years old and really didn't take much of a workload. So that's me done with Seagate for the next while - replaced with a Western Digital 4TB Red NAS drive.
