|benheezy||i just bought this. i've never had problems with seagates or western digitals. i think it varies between users because some hdds will always have DOA drives and others will work for 5+ years. in general expect hdds to last for only 2+ years|

|captxenon||I bought a Tandy 1000ex in the late 80's. I have built many others and bought many others. I have NEVER had a hard drive die. Use Spinrite to check all sectors from time to time.|

I have had more WD Black's fail than Seagates in the last 3 years. 2 Seagates and 4 WD blacks.

Eh I grabbed one. My current 250GB is running out of space so I'm in need of a new drive.
I figured there are more 5* ratings than 1* so I'll just give it a whirl. I wanted to wait until BF, but oh well. If there's a deal for a drive during BF that has better ratings than this I'll pick that up too and just eBay the Seagate
