Also the only Laptop HD i've ever seen fail was a friend's Hitachi in a dell
After a decade I believe the "Deathstar" comments can be dropped. With that said, I've seen almost every brand fail at one point. I was only stating that Hitachi has one of the lowest, if not the lowest failure rates.

Hitachi can be regarded as the winner here. But don't take that as a blanket to cover the whole storage market. It's only the case in this study, which we've already said several times is extremely limited.

Well you're initial argument was one that would have been relevant 8-9 years ago. So I believe my article that's dated August 2010 aims slightly more at the present. If you are going to debate my point then please find evidence yourself to disprove my argument rather than saying "Deathstar", or "My friend's Hitachi laptop drive died".

It's only saying not to use it as a blanket as there is not many studies that are directed at HDD failure rates, etc. That doesn't mean that this one should be discredited.

To continue the quote from the article above, which you posted...

Also, I think that google uses Hitachi drives in their servers, for whatever thats worth.
