Western Digital Caviar (3.5-inch) and Scorpio (2.5-inch) Black drives have five-year warranty. They also have an excellent website for registering your hard drives. Their warranty replacement service is also first rate, as I discovered when I had to replace a WD drive a few months ago.

Most other hard drives, including Seagate, seem to have warranties no longer than 2 years. One other thing. You will probably notice the difference between a 5400 and 7200 rpm drive. Go for the 7200.
