I'd recommend THIS or THIS or even THIS. Seagate makes great drives with a 5-year warranty... no questions asked!! Other World Computing has competitive pricing, too, and the drives are a cinch to install!

We've got 4 of the 250GB installed in our PT G5s that are used, primarily, as temp storage for our SCSI drives. The SATAs are fast enough to use as our main drives, but we spent all this money on SCSI and feel like we have to use them.
