the $99 Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3500641A 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - OEM

I really don't trust Western Digital drives and I do not see that there is any thing to gain for TiVo's with the more expensive 7200.10 drives.

This is by far the part I hate most about upgrading (and what's kept me with my stock HDVR2 for so long!)--selecting a hard drive.

Since the Seagate linked above is out of stock I'm considering the Western Digitals, #3 & 4 above.

#3 has a 8 MB cache & #4 has a 16 MB cache for $10 more. I was going to go with #4, but the page doesn't list any warranty info. The page for #3 lists a 3y warranty.

Thoughts? My inclination is to just get #3 with the 8MB cache and warranty, and call it a day. I'm very open to other suggestions, though!

I think a stock Tivo comes with a 5400 rpm drive so either of those drives would be just as good at the other. It'd be like buying 160 MPH tires for a stock volkswagon.
