[HWI] 25 3.5-inch hard disk round-up: battle of the terabytes - Page 7

post #61 of 66
The problem with a 3TB or 4TB driver failing in the long run is not the cost but the stuff you lose. 2 year is enough time to know if the driver is not build properly. WD Black have 5 year because they are so expensive.

I know WD posts the life of the enterprise edition. But I'm just trying to figure out if I will be paying WD BLACK extra for warranty, or will it actually have a longer life. I can't find any documentation on their site about the life length of these drives.

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 disagree because I have owned many (20+ personal and 100+ business) of the drives in the test. My personal experience is that HDD's die. They just do, it seems to me that if they run longer than six months they usually last a few years for me and if they do die it's usually within that first six month time period. What matters to me is warranty. That's why most of personal drives are WD Caviar Black for the 5 year warranty. WD also upgrades me usually when I do RMA a drive. For instance the last drive I had die was a 2TB Green and they sent me back a 2.5TB Green. I have also had a couple 640GB Blacks die and they sent me back 1TB. Seagate also has not treated me terribly but one company I absolutely do not relish RMA'ing with is Samsung.

Thank you very much OP for the link to the review. thumb.gif

Just in the market for some new drives as my old samsung 320gb, 400gb and 1000gb drives are getting old and very small, so this couldn't be any more timed.

HDD companies do not provide the life expectency of their drives. They provide MTBF but that is different from life expectency.
