Default Hard Drive - opinions?

I just loaded PT10 on my new iMac. Im going to puchase a new hard drive. I found one at Bestbuy with an Oxford chip set. Anyone have any experience with this drive?

Forget it, it has a cheap and nasty WD Caviar Green drive that features spin-down and other power management silliness. Horrible problems are likely to ensure.

Go look at a Glyph, OWC (One World Computing) or G-Tech drive. The manufacturer/reseller ought to be shouting that its qualified/suitable for Pro Tools use, if you don't see that its usually not a good sign.
