Default 2nd Harddrive Recommendations?

I'm looking to order this harddrive as a second drive for Reaper.

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200KSRTL 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Retail

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136039

Anyone have experience with this drive, or have a recommendation for another?

Thanks,
Kyle

I've read that Western Digital are to be avoided.
My second drive is a Seagate.

Avoided for audio, or altogether? The reviews on Newegg seem to all lean noticeably in favour of WD. I'll go back and double check that. Any other suggestions? Thanks Jason!

Hi. Check out this one.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136317

Buy two and put both into RAID 1 - should be great for media storage.

Could also buy 3+ and use RAID 5 if you have/will have lots of media.

PS Note that price is now very reasonable. If you want good packaging, order something else you need - even something trivial. That way you will ensure that it is shipped in a box. Sometimes if you order just a hard drive, it will be shipped without any additional protection. So everyone along the shipping route knows that it's a hard drive. Not a good situation!
