I would recommend the following:
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA
3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Model #: WD7500AAKS
Item #: N82E16822136131
$189.99 x3 $569.97
or two for $379.99.
Set up as two you get the same size for ever-so-slightly more. You
don't get RAID 5 with that set up, I don't think, but you certainly get
fast drives. I'm building a new backend that uses 5 of those as their
disks. Here's why they are so killer:
Basically it's the fastest 7200 RPM disk available, is cheaper than the
750GB competitors, and adds a whole bunch of space to your setup. The
three disk array admittedly adds around $200 to your cost but it
certainly sounds attractive! Over 2TB? Nice!
