I was wondering if any computer people out there knew which HD was better: IBM Deskstar 60GXP, 65GXP, or 75GXP?
If I remember right, they are all about the same speed. The only diffrence is the size of them.
No, their name has nothing to do with their size. Each comes in various sizes. They're totally different drive lines made by IBM.

It does, but only conerning maximum possible capacity. 60Gb for the 60GXP and 75Gb for the 75GXP.
Goodbye IBM, hello Seagate!

I was thinking about getting a couple of IBM drives in the near future. Having said that, the only problems my friends and family have had with hard drives have been with a single failed IBM SCSI drive.
Rob, where did you get your drives from? I've tended to use Scan Computers here in the UK, but after they tried to sell me a second-hand motherboard as if it was new (they did change it when I pointed out that new motherboards don't come covered in dust!), I'm looking around for alternative suppliers. Problem is, Scan are pretty cheap.
