Have they resolved the reliability problem with the 1000GB Samsung Drives?
They either had a high failure rate, or were incredibly popular which made it look like they had a high failure rate.
The 750GB’s had no problems (compared to the expected failure rates).
I bought a 750GB a few weeks ago. Speedy reading … writing is a tad slow though.
I understand that the Seagate (750GB & 1000GB) HDD’s use Perpendicular Recording, which gives higher bit densities, and hence a faster (sustained) read speed. If choosing a 750GB, perhaps the seagate might be a better choice?
