High performance drive, PLENTY big enough for my Linux operating system (no data)

Summary: An inexpensive and high performance drive to serve as the OS (boot) drive for my Linux server. I'm not storing data on this drive (I have a big RAID5 array for that), so it's PLENTY big enough. Many years ago I had bad experiences with Western Digital drives - three failed, whereas I never lost a Seagate or Hitachi. I quit buying WD for years, but a couple of years back I gave them another chance, and it looks like they have gotten their act together on quality.
Summary: The HD in our old Windows XP testbed machine broke, so I needed an inexpensive/reliable replacement drive that was compatible with older technology. This drive was perfect, installed without any problems and it works well - impressed with the 8MB cache for such a low price.
