Which The Most Stable Internal Hard Drive?

Hi All,

I would like to purchase a ~500 GB internal hard drive. I don't want the hard drive to crash so I am looking for a very very stable and reliable hard drive.

So What the most stable and reliable internal hard drive in the market today (don't care about speed)? Brand and model?

Thank you

You have to look 5 years from now to answer this for sure but subjective opinion tells that WD green series are pretty reliable.

If you want to be protected please use Raid coontroller, Areca for example, and create RAID1, RAID5 or RAID6.
Its not answer to your question, but this is good way to be protected.

In term of stability and reliability, which one better 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM? I know that 7200 faster but her i'm talking about stability and reliability NOT the speed?

It's always the best practice to find HDD compatibility list from Xtreamer.
Than you are sure that you will not have compatibility issue.
And than you make your choice from a list of 10-20 HDD types. It's best and more simple.

Look for the guarantee offered.

If you can get a 5 year guarantee for the drive you've probably got a good drive.  If you can't look elsewhere.  You'll pay more money for a 5 year guarantee though.

With HDD compatibility list I mean that the Xtreamer , as producer, has a list with the tested HDD types. But I can't find it too :(
http://www.xtreamer.net/ (or this is another Xtreamer...)
I'm using Synology. They have this list:
http://www.synology.com/support/hd.php?lang=enu

If you will use HDD's from this list you are more sure that you NAS will work without strange problems...
When you can't get this list from manufacturer , than maybe is the best way to try to find anther product...
