I really like the 1 TB Western Digital VelociRaptor:

It is pretested and REALLY shows a noticeable increase in speed.

The cost is about double what a cheap drive runs but well worth it in my opinion.

In my iMac 2133 I have replaced the original 320GB Seagate hard drive with a 1TB hybrid drive, also from Seagate, model ST1000DX001 (which is a 3,5", 7200 rpm drive with 8GB of SSD cache).

Works perfectly, no adapter required, extremely fast.
