    i think samsung provides 3 yrs warranty. so it is a good option.. but go for a 120GB hard disk. it will cost u some more 100s(around 700) and will give u more value for money

    If u r planning to go in for a higher capacity drive, don't go for a 120 GB, as the performance reduces due to odd number of platters (3). Instead spend some more money and get a 160 GB (4 platters).

    How much would it cost

    How much would the 160 Gm beast cost. In my other post I mentioned about one of my HDDs going KAPUT (rather *click* *click*).

    I am looking for an option. :evil:

    Guys, digging up an old topic but I just returned from the Samsung service centre in Pune with my replacement HDD. :shock: :D :D :D

    My HDD had crashed in the beginning of the month I was wondering if it would be replaced or not. Took it to samsung service centre, they examined/checked it and within a week I got a replacement.

    I say go for Samsung as they have a great service. Also their site offers a lot of information in such cases.
