Wow I don't know what you all are doing to your hard drives. I have about 10 TB in storage in all, made up from about 6 or 7 drives from various manufacturers. I don't think I have a single HD drive that is less than 4 years old, and the oldest are probably about 10-12 years old. I also have 3 SSDs that are going strong, the youngest being 2 years old.
definitely not drunk, 12 Oct 2016HGST already bought by WD thoOuch! Subtle backdoor entry right there!
BoardDWorld, 12 Oct 2016I wouldn't touch Seagate either. But neither would I touch WD now also. Mid 2012 Macbook Air ... moreI weirdly have the same problem with Toshiba. Their build quality has always been iffy.

My seagate 80GB dead after 2 years

Mid 2012 Macbook Air with internal 128GB Toshiba SSD still going strong.
Over the first 3 years, since I purchased the Air, I went through 4x WD 1TB My Passport USB HDD. Portable in size but absolute rubbish when mobile, even taking the very slightest bump in a computer bag. In fact it was so bad there was always a queue waiting for replacements coming from Singapore at the local WD Service center.
1x Toshiba 1TB HDTB110 USB HDD I bought as a cheap stand in for the first WD that failed. It was faster, takes any minor bumps and is still going strong after 4 years. Note it resided in the same computer bag as the 3 other WD's that failed.
Seagate & WD are skimping in build quality. I don't recommend them at all anymore.
using kingston uv400 240gb ssd for 1 month now as C drive.....stellar performance......its a new level of computing....also using 1tb wd green drive for 2 years ...so good luck to them

I have 128 intel ssd for C drive and the Seagate 1t HDD for D drive. I use it mainly to store my steam gaming library. It works fine to this day ( with some noise...but all old hdd do that).
Here my harddrives usage over years
My seagate 80GB dead after 2 years
my seagate 200GB still works after 8 years
my seagate 500 GB dead in 1 months usage
My seagate 1 TB dead in 1.5 years
WD Green 500 GB daed in 3 years
My WD blue 1.5 TB dead in 2.5 years
My WD Green 2 TB still works after 3.5 Years usage
My intel 60 GB SSD still works after 5 years usage as photoshop scratch disk (massive write count)
My Team L3 120GB SSD still works after 2 years usage
my Adata 240 SSD still works after 3 years usage
conclusion : seagate consumer HDD suck beyond recognition (unless you got godly one), WD also have quite short life expectation (~3 years), and even cheapest SSD will have better life cycle than mechanical drives
its good to know that WD has this brilliant idea for SSDs not just on mechanical HDDs.
Omar Mohamed, 12 Oct 2016You transfer/modify your data a lot, right?I used to have my PC run 24/7 and constantly work with data in memory, not sure if my software modified anything on the hard drive. Now I'm using my PC a lot less, although it stays on for the most of the day.
Anonymous, 12 Oct 2016A study showed that WD hdds are the most reliable ones. I tried Toshiba and Seagate, which fai... moreThere is no such study, WD has never been the first in reliability.
When it comes to HDD and reliability, HGST has ALWAYS been the best.
