|I typically use Seagate hard drives in all of my new builds as well as for replacements. As far as I can remember, out of the hundreds that I've purchased, I haven't had to replace one yet.|
One thing I want to also mention is that I switched to Western Digital for a short period of time and didn't have any issues with them either.
I would be sure to read the reviews before purchasing, but honestly, I believe the chances of you getting a bad drive are pretty low. As long as you back up your data often, you shouldn't have anything to worry about.
If you want recommendations, you will need to include system specs so we know what we're dealing with.
