I very nearly jumped for the Western Digital 250GB.
Then as I was checking out, I found it's the model with the 1-year warranty.
The 3-year warranty of the drive is available online as OEM for about $200, and the version with Fluid Dynanic Bearings is for between $210-225 or so. I'm willing to pay the premium price for the warranty, as good as WD is, it's too much green to shell out for a drive covered only one year.
