I´m going to upgrade my laptop´s HDD and I have two options.:

1-Fujitsu MHT 2040 AH (5.400 rpm/ATA-100/8Mb. Buffer)

2-Seagate Momentus ST94811A (5.400 rpm/ATA-100/8Mb. Buffer)

The price is almost the same... what do you think?
Thanks!

Personally, I'd go with a Tosh. But if it's down between those two, I'd
definitely go with the 'gate. I avoid Fujitsus like the plague.

As for desktop drives (in case anyone cares): Samsung all the way.

I've had to send back more than one Fujitsu drive that
wouldn't work right out of the box. I've never seen a
Seagate that didn't work from the getgo, and I've thrown
out a bunch that still work fine after ten years.

Seagate. Makes the most shock tolerant drives for the desktop, and laptops
too I believe. Reliable as hell, got one 420MB SGT here that still runs.
Quantum ProDrive (or similar name) 420MB around the same purchase date,
failed long time ago.

Strange.
I had to change drive types as Quantum is no longer available. I built a
desktop with a Seagate 120G SATA drive in February. It failed completely 2
weeks ago. The Seagate I replaced it with lasted a whole week. Of course,
these were OEM drives. Hopefully 3rd time lucky. Never ever had a failure
with the many Quantums I have used and some are still in service.

Man, really bad drives.. scares me off :)
But the later Quantums, i only had a 6.4 CX in the office that failed
(probably power surge) - it turns on, gives the green LED a half second on
and nothing else. BIOS cannot detect it. Weird.

My personal Quantums were great, sold off a 5GB, still using a 20GB lct
series one..right now.. added on a AS Plus 30GB. Still running well. Then
added a 80GB Maxtor and another HDD controller (after Maxtor merged w/Qtm),
still OK.

Maxtor was bad in the pre-merger days. 2.5GB drive failed, and I managed to
resurrect it after 6 mths in the closet...quickly formatted it and sold it
off :)

All OEM drives.
