Frustration through the roof! Is seagate really this bad!? - Page 2

post #11 of 31
The only thing I would trust to Seagate hard drives are Uwe Boll movie rips and dubstep.

My googling can't find this documentation, so could you provide it?

It's not a flawed statement, it's my personal experience. Flawed implies that it contains false or fallacious information.

I'm not trying to set Seagate up as the best HDD company on the market. I'm simply offering my experience with Seagate HDDs. In my experience, seagate drives are just as reliable as any other hard drive. In fact, the only HDD I've received DOA was a WD drive.

Not quite, as a prostitute has been known to sleep around.

Ignoring the terrible analogy, it would be more like I've slept with a few girls from a family rumored to have more prostitutes than another, and thus far they've all been clean.

I'm not trying to defend Seagate, I'm simply offering my experience, and my personal experience goes against what the population at large believes.

"Documented proof"? B.S.

All HDD companies have had bad series before. However, the overall RMA rate is about the same within 1-2% of each other over the decades.

What does it say exactly? Most people can't read a warning correctly.

It says on the screen when it boots up that my SSD is ok, and then it says right under that the HDD is bad.

I thought so too about the documentation. If he/she can provide it, though, I'll eat my words.

Thats what I recall being said in a study you posted before, but I cant find it with my google-fu.

Yes it is luck of the draw I think. I have two good Seagate Barracuda's and three dead ones. I have had the two working 7200.10 and .11's since new and no problems. The three dead one's are 7200.11's, I switched to WD shortly after my run of luck and the two Caviar Black's I have are great and also have two Caviar Greens also good so far. I have an SSD for my OS now so hoping the greens hold up as storage for me..

Biased? Did you even look at how many Seagates I said I owned? Nothing to do with biased, just luck of the draw IMO like I said. The 7200.11 series had a higher failure rate than normal too.

I'm finding majority of posts quick to judge -_-. Failure rate on HDD's is PURE LUCK for the consumer-that is unless a massive bad batch went out. I doubt the manufacturers went out of their way to make bad drives.

There was a translated HDD failure rate review gathered by some deutch website a friend linked to me however I lost it but within the numbers they gathered hard drives were all within mere 1-2% of failure between each other, just as ducky said.

I can possibly understand the frustration of losing your important data but if it truly was important you could have spared the extra $ to back it up.
