Maxtor. Just kidding. Really, any drive w/a 3-5 year warranty is worth looking at, IMHO.

Just remember that most external drives are a risky purchase because (unless someone can correct me) they generally all come with just a short 1 year warranty.

Western Digital/Toshiba/Samsung

If you ever owned a 3TB Seagate make sure to join the Class Action lawsuit.

I really wish their law suit was extended to cover their 1/2/4 TB Drives - because they are equally crappy.

Thanks for the link.

I have 4 of these Seagate drives. One just died last week (spins but drive is not recognize) and 2nd is showing errors with HD Tune Pro. I picked up a new Synology raid box and plan on populating it with only HGST NAS drives. HGST are more expensive, but I'm not risking my data any more with the other brands.

Is Seagate really that bad? I need a HD ASAP.

Seagate external drives get REALLY hot...then inevitably die within a year's time. 3 out of 4 Seagate drives I've purchased, died within 2 years.
If you have a Seagate drive that does get hot (pretty much all of them?), you better back that data up ASAP...cause that data is about to die.
