[OC3D] Seagate Hit with Class Action Lawsuit for High Failure Rates - Page 18

post #171 of 261
I'm thinking about matching my Seagate 3 TB drive with a Western Digital 3 TB drive so I can mirror the two drives for redundancy. Call it.... hedging my bets!

More anecdotal information...

I have four Seagate H.D. 80GB, 160 GB, 250GB and 1TB.

The 80GB is 8 years old. The 1TB is 4 year old.

Never had a Seagate failure or data corruption.

Just works !

well it just depends on luck, and the manufacturer's batches.

if anyone remembers IBM's "deathstar" batches, they had a mind-blowing failure rate.
but after hitachi bought it, they've gotten over that issue and now has one of the lowest failure rate.


edit: i just remembered something that i'd like to ask.
can anyone confirm whether seagate's 5K rpm drives have a much lower failure rate?
so far the "research" "G-search" i've done seems to point out that they got a low failure rate.

Odd, I thought the 5k or green drives from Seagate failed more often.

Neither of these statements are true and are pretty clearly documented by BB...

i'm not sure either, ST4000DM000 in particular only has a 3.8% failure rate on backblaze.
ST4000DM000 is a 4TB, 4platter (1TB per plate), 5900RPM harddrive.

Oh I meant the older green/5k ones like the 1/1.5/2tb. The newer 5k drives are pretty good.

well indeed, barracudas have a bad reputation.

the newer ones should be the ones called "desktop HDD.##" where this ST4000DM000 is "desktop HDD.15".
though if i remember right, the recent 7200rpm models aren't that great, so i was wondering whether the 5K are better off than their 7K.

A great thread to start would be a Hard drive monitor thread where our members link to what drives they own and the review they left and we can graph failure rates over time.

I'd like to see a data set from our users. I would think we could start from say 1 TB and the link to a verified purchase review would be needed for data integrity. Of course the data will be skewed because of we will not very likely get full participation and the fact that many drives are only used for benching while others would be 24/7 in shock resistant enclosures. But It would be a nice resource if built up over a few years.
