Out of the Blue

After a night of MrsBlue stealing the covers, I wandered downstairs in the wee hours of this morning to find that she had also left a window open, so on the off chance that I end up dying of pneumonia, you guys are my witnesses that this is part of some conspiracy.

Considering how few first-run TV shows I have any interest in, it kind of ticked me off that they scheduled Malcolm in the Middle opposite The Sopranos this year, but now that The Sopranos' season is sleeping with the fishes, it's nice to have a beloved show to fall back on (though I'm not sure Malcolm demonstrates as much of a positive family image as The Sopranos).

I need some help here. I want to buy a new hard disk, I need something around 80GB, reliable, quite and fast (at that order).
Suggestions? bad experience?

Yeah, plenty of bad experience with IBM. They used to make great drives, but the stuff they released in the last year was really, really, really unreliable. One of my drives completely crashed, all data lost, the other started to emit loud noises about one year after I bought it and I replaced it to play safe. To top it all off, around the same time a friend's IBM drive also broke down.

Recent hard drives from IBM also got some really bad reviews because of unreliability (which of course I saw a few days after I bought them), so I guess it wasn't just bad luck on my part.
