Re: Built in incapacity?

I don't like the sound of a shingled drive either. I'd rather have an inconvenient PSU and no shingles.

I wonder what is in my Seagate 1T drive? it replaced a WD 1T USB drive that died without warning. The WD is a USB drive controller, no internal SATA/PATA. I have a bunch of WD 1T desktop drives too, that I mean to connect a terminal to, I think they died of faulty firmware and you can revive them. No receipts :(
