+1 love Seagate. Never had any 7200.11 drives though.

Seagate should spend more time on R&D on reliability than drive advancement. In the end, no one will buy their unreliable crap no matter how advance it is.

Their .12's do not suck ass. Only the .11's. Also, you can JTAG a .11 to fix it. So technically, take advantage of it instead of being a whiner.

All HDD companies have had unreliable series/models at one point or another. Reliablity flucates over time. These companies go back decades so if they continously had reliability issues, they would be dead by now.

Your comment is based upon short-term knowledge.

Not arguing in favor of either side here, but most people want a working HDD right out of the box. Not one they have to mod to get it to work the way it should. Either way the .11's are old news.

Count myself as another vote towards not having any issues with seagate drives. We have three in this house between two pc's. One from three years ago and the other from 2004. No issues yet! Also have an old maxtor from 2004 still pluckin' away at dem files.

Never had issues with 4 seagate drives i've owned and installed in others computers.

I usually stick to WD raptors and such for OS+programs Drive and Seagate for mass storage.

That should be enough said...

Their 5400.x drives are fine, along with their old 7200.10 and less, their 7200.11 and .12s may be fast - but they suck ass.

Edit, ah and some personal experience, I've had to RMA 54 7200.11's (50 of them were recertified, but still)
How about you use an article about drives released after their acquisition of Samsung to prove your point instead then? (Since you claim their drives "still" suck)

A 2 year old article proves nothing about the current.
