What type of Bios do you have and what version is it? What type of Motherboard do you have? Most hard drives are about the same in quality and price. I would reccommend for price, a non ultra-dma Fujitsu in the 4gb range if you need alot of space. If not get a 2 to 3GB hard drive. Cost is about $165 dollars for the 3GB. If you want reliability and good price, I would reccommend a  Seagate 3.2 GB for about $195 dollars. The Seagate would also be the most compatible with a computer system. Let me know your Bios, Motherboard and Operating system and what you want to pay and I will give you the best reccommendation I can and it won't cost you a thing.

Well findout what the limits that your motherboard will handle. But I STRONGLY recommend Western Digital. Usually hard drives will work with any processor and operating system

bwill71,

Your question is a bit unclear.  Are you talking about a compatible drive to be used with a P-120?

If so, any drive will work if you have a suitable way to interface it with the operating system you're using.

Name brand?  I won't get into that argument.
If you want the name brand of a hard drive, then I would suggest any brand that is sold by someone you trust who will honor its warranty in the event of problems.

Price is relevant only as it applies to who you deal with and where you are.
One person's price my not relate to prices available to you or to me.

If you need more, just ask!
Regards,
Ralph
