Disk drives suck less than they did a couple of years ago. Which is nice


Re: Ah...

Not true, for a while there, almost all Seagate drives (even enterprise ones) were pretty shit.

I had many a NetApp/EMC, etc. etc. that came packed to the gills with Seagate drives, that started regularly failing on a very regular schedule starting just about half a year before the normal warantee period on those drives. I had a Sun Thor (48 SATA 1TB Seagate drives) that probably had lost 70% of its original drives.

The replacements started coming back with Seagate drives, that failed again after replacement.

Pretty soon the replacements starting came back with HGST or sometime Toshiba, and those disks never had to be replaced again.
