We haven’t had any bad experiences with the 3Tb drives - well, one Seagate failed to do a Full Format right of the box. Fine. If the drive is going to fail, please please do it immediately!
But it’s interesting to see Fry’s is only selling the desktop 7200rpm 4Tb Hitachi (rotating its price from $249-269-299), and Egghead is only selling the HGST Enterprise for a steady $540.
All of these were delivered to market pre-Flood ([I]ante diluvium[/I], for all of the Popes among us), and there were WDs ready for market, too.
Where are they?
While we haven’t had bad experiences with these GUI’d units, the lack of market-appearance by a broader vendor base gives a curious nod to the naysayer fears.
And I still need the 12Tb units.
