I have both seagate, and maxtor drives.
Both are good quality, have'nt had any trouble with either!
As for specifics, I don't have the specs available off-hand, but I could fetch them, I think.
But yeah, always try to have an extra hard drive available. They're not very expensive, considering all that they do.
on second thought, I did have some trouble with a 200 gB drive from seagate. I think the bigger the hd, the more prone to errors, and malfunctions. I
usually stick with 80 GB hd's for my boot drive.
For add'l. storage, almost anything is good. The second drive in a computer does'nt take the punishment that the boot drive does, imo.
