There isn't exactly a recommend drive.

I use a Seagate 750GB in an Antec MX-1 enclosure.

You may have already seen these threads but they may help.



I agree. Issues seem to be related to the enclosures, more specifically the controller boards, and not the drives. In my opinion, any good name brand drive will do and it doesn't need to be especially fast. WD, Seagate, Samsung, Hitachi are all good drives. I'd shop for price.

As for cases, the Antec MX-1 seems to be a very solid choice but you do have to assemble it yourself which is very easy compared to say a baby crib.
