Western Digital seems to be the preferred drive, followed my Maxtor. One user reported a lot of noise and start-up lag with his Seagate. This seems to corroborate the general Seagate experience for external SATA drives.

I just checked and PATA drives are hard to find as mentioned for a reasonable price in Gatineau. You might luck out and snag a external drive with a decent PATA drive inside.
