OT: Best current hard drives

I thought I would take advantage of your collective expertise to post this very basic query - in your considered opinion what are the best and most reliable 3TB & 4TB hard drives at this point in time?

Thank you.

HGST Ultrastar drives.
And they stink. But they are better than anything else on the market. WD is the devil.

I'd vote for this.

But the pricing is not quite right yet... in a couple years...

I'm curiosu what others think here, my gut tells me that desktop drives with more redundancy is a better solution than enterprise drives with less. In other words, I'd go for a 8 drive RAID 6 with desktop drives and opposed to a 6 drive RAID 5 with enterprise discs.

given an identical setup, its always better to replace a desktop drive with an enterprise drive, but if you can provide redundancy via advanced levels of RAID, is the added reliability of the enterprise drive worth it or can you acheive more speed as well as reliability by simple adding more discs.

The above assumes that the physical size and power requirements of the discs are not an issue.

Thoughts?
