[HWI] 25 3.5-inch hard disk round-up: battle of the terabytes - Page 2

post #11 of 66
I just got a 7200.14 2 TB from Seagate, but I didn't know about the 667GB platter thing. I feel like that's false advertising, because on every product page I visited of it, it proclaimed how great it's 1 TB per platter technology is. Other than that, I really like the drive.
It. Gets. Better.

Finally able to view

I'm really glad I picked up the 3TB Seagate 2700.14 for $90...I only regret not buying a 2nd or third now D: . I suppose I don't need such a fast drive for movies/music though.

This and other tests for HDD don't measure the most important factor in a HDD reliability and longevity. Something , in my experience, goes to samsung and hitachi over WD and Seagate.


That's one reason the F3s are so popular. They're reliable and they're cheap.

That's one reason the F3s are so popular. They're reliable and they're cheap.

I also disagree. By % WD and Haitachi are the worst and Samsung/Seagate are on top depending on model.

Total returns for 2011:

- Samsung 1.5%
- Seagate 1.8% (1.6% not including the 7200.11 160 GB)
- Western 2.0%
- Hitachi 3.0%

Thank you for the very in-depth posting the reasoning, evidence, personal experience, etc...

Anyways, the only problems I have had with any type of hard drive is the corsair ssd that I have but that got replaced and is now working properly maybe I'm just lucky.

I'm knocking on wood furiously right now

I've had probably 200 hard drives by now and only a handful of failures. Out of 6 that I can think of that did actually fail 5 of them were 2.5" Haitachi laptop drives, and one WD 1TB black that was a few years old. Currently using a Seagate ST500 500GB for data and its is surprisingly fast and quiet, I'm quite impressed with it.

Interesting.. I stopped using WD almost 10 years ago they're terrible... I stopped using Seagate about 3 years ago and started using samsungs... I had 3 seagates fail within 8 months and they werent mistreated at all. I will give Seagate props on their RMA service but If I have to send every drive in within a year to be replaced thats no good for me.


I honestly haven't had any hitachi drives but several friends have them and said nothing but good things about their reliability and longevity.

Yeah, I haven't had a seagate die on me yet. If you had bad luck with them then go with what you're comfortable with, but there is no denying they have the performance this time.

Yep. I've done computer repair for 7 years and replace HDD's almost daily.
Almost all the time it's a Hitachi or Samsung HDD's that have failed, more often Hitachi than Samsung however.
3 times out of 10 it's a Seagate but Western Digital replacements are very rare.

There is a infant mortality rate in which I have read that Western Digital have always been a bit more susceptible to.
