This ^^^^.
I have yet to have a HDD fully up and croak on me, but I did have one WD 160GB IDE drive that was quirkier than Howard Hughes. Never had a Seagate, but ALL companies have issues with anything they make. It's all in the numbers.

Good question. It's just like all the XFX hate, people just run with it.

This should be pretty awesome. Can't wait to be able to a get a 2TB HDD for $60. It'd be pretty good if we could get a 3TB HDD for $100, too.

And no, that TH article doesn't say anything about the .12 (And Samsung made a recovery more difficult than the 7200.11, they used to have drives that failed so much that one place had 8 out of 6 fail, as in, two replacements also failed.) and newegg reviews are not reliable.

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)
The Inquirer? 7200.11? 2009? Seriously?

In my experience, they've more than fixed the firmware issues...And many users of this site had the 1.5TB Seagates until the firmware issue came up.

Pretty much the same here, but the WD was only from 2004-2005, died within two years. (Luckily, my 7200.7 80GB was my main drive at that point)

Have you used a 7200.12? I've been using them for builds/external HDDs I make for people when the Spinpoint F3 is out of stock or I need a 2.5" drive, I've only had one F3 fail (I think the person accidentally dropped their external drive, not that they said that) and no Seagates fail.

This.

Your comment is based upon short-term knowledge.
Exactly, Seagate drives (At least at one point) were the ultimate in reliability, you had 20MB ones still working after 20 or so years, Samsung had a horror drive that failed if it took the tiniest of shocks, Kalok just made shoddy drives all the time and WDs had a few bad drives.

The way I see it, most of the people here would end up doing some sort of modding anyway (Eg. Short Stroking) for performance anyway, but that is true.

A 2 year old article proves nothing about the current.

Exactly, I could go back and get the name of a WD HDD that sucked badly and then claim that's what all their drives are like, but it won't be true.

Which is kinda dumb, sure, one series of HDDs may suck (Eg. Samsung SHD-3121A) but the rest could be pure gold.

New technology, even if Samsung or WD had done it, there would be issues like this...Remember the first SSDs without cache? Or how bad the 286 was? And compare Windows 95/98 to Windows 7 in say, stability and security, all new technology improves over time.
The 7200.11 was a firmware fault, the 7200.12s seem to be vastly better, it's just that half the people here are too close minded/fanboyish to notice.

Indeed, after one or two bad models (Eg. The XFX HD4870s and some of the HD5870s) everyone just assumes they suck forever, until say, WD has a bum drive, then everyone will say WD sucks and go to Seagate.
