My System Specs

My issue is I would rather not have the drives fail in the first place so I thought I would try something else for a change. I will comment on their failure rate in a few years, but so far they have been great.
Yup I too went through 100% Seagate failure (as in the drives died, I RMA'd them, they died again). At that point I said "f*** this" and replaced them all with Samsung F3's. Running great ever since.

Hard drives are all hit and miss though. I typically use WD in things and haven't had any of them fail yet.
