Failure rate on cheap drives is always higher. I've had Seagate drive issues in the past. The drives I linked above are not cheap.Fair enough; especially, as I got caught by the switch to air, rather than helium, filled drives. Still not a reason to buy WD Blacks though.
But Sagath, like Cosmo Karmer and H&H Bagels, I am still boycotting Seagate for the number of their drives that died on my back in the day. lol
