Hard disk advice
Once again I need your advice: Some days ago I noticed that the S.M.A.R.T. status of one of my internal hard disks of my PowerMac has been set to “Status Bad”, indicating that a failure may be imminent and that it should be replaced.
So I’ve already created a complete backup of the disk — and now I’m looking for an ideal successor. And since I’m not that familiar respectively not quite up to date with what is currently state of the art, I would appreciate recommendations from you guys. What I’m concretely looking for is an internal S-ATA with about 160GB or more.
Preformance vs. Silence
Of course performance is crucial — but noise or rather silence is even more important, because of my PowerMac’s perforated case. By the way I’m also looking for an external hard disk with about 250GB which should also be as quiet as possible — performance is not important at all. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot :)
