[QUOTE=robbi;2039413]LOL only if you use it occasinaly i suppose it will. Well know that all drives now are made very badly. I use drives for videos and other media, they don’t last five minutes, well not much more than a year.
For longer hd life than a few months use the biggest psu you can afford. At minimum 600watt psu, get one where the volatages are certified and checked. Use temp monitors to check all system and drives temps and health. This ensures at least you can get a year hoping out of them. I do know some that have had their drives for two years, but the computer is little used, not every day for hours.
I would be happy not tosee any drive size increases for a year or two. Until the companies can sell reliable drives.
What i find dissapointing they make crap drives, but don’t recover your data under warranty to a new drive. You are left with - repair yourself - lose data your and accept a new drive - pay lots of money for a dr individual or company to repair for you. Those sollutions are crazy, its only needed for drive companies to build better drives.
btw i’m still using drives from 10 years ago, they are smaller but very reliable. It was when drives companies did make good drives. Not like todays utter rubbish they make.[/QUOTE]
I don’t know whom your buying your HDD from but seems like you need to get HDD from brand name manufactures like WD, Seagate, Maxtor. Whom have good warranty on their drives. I used and now have WD and Maxtor HDD drives in my computer a total of 4 WD, 1 Maxtor. All working and doing just fine only have to replace one in the so far since I purchased the drives. Also defragging your HDD extends it’s life and usage.
