Failed before its time...

Pros: Storage capacity, price/GB, and 5 years warranty.

Cons: Not the fastest in its class and a little noisy at times, Failed and failing before its time

I own two units of this HDD. WEI score for this drive is 5.9 like many others in its class. Completing the read speed tests from AIDA64, the speed is around half of my Intel 320 series 80GB SSD. With the exception of Buffered read. The seek time is much longer compared to the Intel SSD. Update: One of them has failed and the other one is about to, before their time. I am the still working one with HD Sentinel, and is reporting that it has less than 300 days life left and has powered on for close to 1100 hrs since being first installed, while the other HDD died over a year ago and I was using it as my main OS boot drive.
