[QUOTE=ivid;2616167]In my experience Seagate make good drives. Aside from the firmware debacle a few years ago they have a good track record in my book. My company has been shipping our products with 1000+ of their drives per year for years. Very low RMA and failure rates. That’s my experience anyhow.
Too bad we can’t get the Enterprise drives at all right now, they’re all being hoarded by the HP’s and DELL’s etc…[/QUOTE]
And unfortunately those bad drives are still out there Seagate from what I remember haven’t recalled those drives they just say it’s a Firmware update that is needed. I highly doubt that claim is and less they a white lie. No drives last forever anything with electrical components eventually fail over time and sometimes in the worst timing.
