sorry for your computer problems!
Actually, Plextor is usually pretty solid stuff. The only drive companies I totally avoid these days are iomega and liteon (having had several drives from both companies crap out in less than a couple of years).

If you're really concerned about backing up your data, as you should be - it's easy to replace broken hardware but your data can be irreplaceable - you could consider setting up a cheapo, low power back up system. You wouldn't need much ram, graphics or processing power - just stick a couple of large drives in it, mirror them using raid1 (using software raid if necessary), and periodically copy your data on to it via a lan connection, or even via thumb-drives. Don't use it for anything else.
