i don't get my disks scratched, and they still work unless you screw up big time and you can almost see through the disk

My personal belief is that internal HDDs by-and-large have good lifespans because they are shipped in containers wrapped in fragile tape. External drives get man-handled by airport luggage employees.
External HDD cases don't have much,if any ventilation to keep the drive cool.

Oh gosh you just don't get it.

When talking about reliability, CD's will always be the better choose than HDD. Fact not fiction. Get it straight and get real.

I believe discs, if taken care of, are more reliable than HDDs.

Discs only have 1 point of failure (AFAIK) if you don't scratch them.

This is why I backup my pictures on flash drives, DVD's and external HDD. If I end up losing my pictures, I might as well give up on all storage media.

Still going to be awhile before you can get reasonable write speeds as 4.5MB/s is in lab conditions and that is quite slow for a 500GB disc.

These will be great for backing up my shiznizz.

I agree. HDDs aren't very reliable because of the way they store data. SSDs aren't too reliable either ATM , but it's still a new technology. But for data that actually matters, discs are the way to go.

A couple of centuries too late. This would have been great a while a go.

true, take care of them it won't happen,
also if it scratches=/=data loss..
there is always a guard layer, if you scratch too deep.. yeah, but you can avoid this by fixing the tiny scratches, so the current scratches don't become too deep. Thats also a way, but time consuming it is.
