bad Seagate hdd
this thing been giving me trouble for months, goes offline
when i give it much work to do smart command fails in diagnsotic.
i checked the serial for warranty at first it was good then later i checked again it expired. since i bought it in August i called seagate emailed them a receipt and they extended the warrany for a month.
HOWEVER i been reading up on these seagate and seems everybody is unhappy with their new models and i know they will send me a "recertified" which actually means REPEAT so i'm thinking i would rather find a westernD drive and considering just waiting and let the warranty run out and claim it thru the creditcard company but this would be my first warranty extension claim thru the card company.
any holes in that plan?
