I'll throw in my regular plug for Hitachi drives here - they don't
have a perfect record, but they're good enough that the company
(www.tummy.com) which leases servers to my employer will use nothing
else (and they have enough servers to get valid statistics, rather
than just the anecdotal "I used Brand Y, and it was DOA" stories).

I really DO wish Google would release their drive brand reliability
stats, though (they saw an order of magnitude difference between the
best brand and the worst one, but they won't publish THAT
