Debunked? LOL

Here's a report from a lab we send drives to who just sent an email last week saying these are the top 5 drive model #'s they see coming in weekly...

• Seagate ST31000528AS (522 data recovery incidents)
• Seagate ST3000DM001 (392 data recovery incidents)
• Seagate ST2000DM001 (343 data recovery incidents)
• Seagate ST31000340NS (324 data recovery incidents)
• Seagate ST31500341AS (319 data recovery incidents)

That's the TOP 5 for all makes/models.
Don't understand how a 2TB portable disk for $70 is a good deal. I would expect a 3TB at this price based on my previous purchases.
i have this exact portable HD that I bought 2 years ago for $75 from a NewEgg deal with 0 tax, free shipping. great drive but i am having a hard time understanding why this is still in the $70 range 2 years later.

Absolutely not. The chip is welded as one unit with the drive on all WD drives, making it impossible to disconnect the SATA chip from the drive to use it in the PS4. Seagate does not do that on their 2TB drives with this form factor, which makes it possible to open and put it inside a laptop or game console.

This is the reason I stay away from WD, and stick to Seagate/Samsung only.

the rest of us stay away from Seagate for having the worst rating of all the major drive brands for failure rate.
