I have been searching online for a decent 2.5" hard drive for my
file/music server, however the consensus is they do not last. I have
been researching this and the best I found is the seagate momentus
drive. I need the drive to be at least 120GB's, speed is not a big
factor and it has to be IDE and i would prefer low power consumption.
Does anyone have any recommendations? It will be on 24/7 but not
always in use and the OS will not reside on the disk. The disk will
have pretty much just the files on it. Also do you all think I would
get better life out of the drive with a non journaled file system?
Any recommendations are appreciated, personal experiences with
hardware is the best.
