They hurt me bad and it seems like whenever I trust them to work they fail me and that combined with the lets face it, lousy warranty, it does have me worried about the reliability of these drives.
Its a case of YLMV with drives from both seagate AND western digital. There has been MANY users over the years on the forums that i have read have used the same argument " i only buy seagate/wd cause every wd/seagate i have botten has died ", reality is of course every drive can not be made to last its exspected lifetime or longer.

If everyone kept not buyin a brand cause of 1 failed product they would eventualy have no product to pick from ...
