"I have had several Seagate drives all of which have lived, or continue to live, well beyond their expected endurance. "

So do I - but this is outweighed by having a lot more drives which haven't survived their warranty period.

DM-series Barracudas are a standout. NONE of them have gone past 14 months in service, with most failing at 11-12 months (several hundred drives). This is the first time I've ever seen a particular model of drive from any manufacturer have 100%+ mortality inside warranty period.
