Hi I have purchased 2 Seagate serial ata over 1 year and all given me Disc Read Errors have occurred on Startup, But sometimes only happens once a week and sometimes quite a bit more, and restart computer and then Drive kicks in. One hard drive was a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 120gig which purchased a year ago failed a week after I had it got a replacement then that done the same thing days after I got it I’m still using that drive as I speak as a slave as it doesn’t boot off it anymore as boot sector stuffed and tried repairing it with no success but does boot sometimes. I also bought a drive 2 weeks ago a Seagate 250gig barracuda 7200.10 serial ata and setup as my master drive and two days after I had it disc read error occurred. This is bizarre when the brand new drives I have had are doing this.
Someone at a computer shop said that Seagate’s are Reliable for speed but Not for Quality. He Recommends Western Digital. Please post reply’s and post your Vote for the best sata drive and any suggestions or people who have had same problems with serial ata drives I would be interested in knowing if others are experiencing these same problems
