[MPC] Western Digital Now Expects Flood Damage to Have "Significant Impact"... - Page 8

post #71 of 194
In my travels, I have replaced far more dead or dying Seagate drives than any of the other brands.

Hard drive loyalty is a funny thing. I wont touch Seagates, but others wont touch anything but Seagates.

Hardly.
Read the bottom, "For us, this made things simple: our RMA figures already clearly demonstrated that Samsung drives had the lowest failure rate of any brand we have ever sold, so we just kept on buying Samsung drives."

It's about as scientific as your link is, they also report the Samsung EcoGreen F4 2TB drives as a 4% fault rate...I'm yet to see any single one of those drives hit a problem.

That is single-handily the worst position defence rebuttal I've ever ran across...forum, or real-life.

You're presented with actual current retailer data documenting failure rates that thoroughly debunks the statement you made. Instead of saying "hey, I'm sorry...I messed up on that one", you go and find a brief article from 2002 (with a postscript from 2005) from some nothing tech site.

Marvelous; people come here for solid information on which to base their decisions - all you've managed to deliver is misinformation and bias.

not at all! smile.gif

the fastest desktop/consumer HDD right now is probably the Hitachi .D series - does about ~180MB/s iirc - SATA2 allows up to ~250MB/s .. your green is slower still, so there is no bandwidth issues to worry about thumb.gif

Some nothing tech site? That's a store in my town, actually. Yeah, it's not exactly up to date but the guy hasn't really updated his site until recently, and I can verify (Talked to him in real life) that the figures stand true today.

Heck, just about every computer I've worked on that has had HDD problems and gotten a repair has a Samsung HDD now.

And that articles source (The french site) was posted elsewhere on here and refuted many times, they pretty much looked at the stuff I linked but from more stores overall, discounting any aftermarket sales (For example newegg)

I thought WD bought out Hitachi's Storage division? Maybe I'm thinking of someone else...

really, you're using anecdotal evidence from a local store in your town?
