My PC has 2 Western Digital and 1 Maxtor.

2 Large Fans are cooling only the HDD’s.

You always have to backup your important Data

(if there is any), no matter how “good” your HDD is.

The only Harddisk that ever died on me was a 2GB Quantum SCSI –

the ridiculous Size should give you a Clue about the Age.

Haha you’re full of fail and you don’t even know it yet… all of the WD’s I’ve had have been reliable EXCEPT through a power surge (which killed 3 of them, but not my Seagate). On the other hand, I’ve had 3 Maxtor’s die on me just from getting a bit too hot, boo-hoo.

A good number of the newer posters don’t see that we’re making fun of idiots and spammers and trolls that exist on other forums. They are the idiots and spammers and trolls we used to parody. I really can’t get past that right now but good work CZ I guess.

I LOVE LAGUNA. I ALSO LOVE SUCKING FAT male reproductive organS.

Seagate for me

It’s been great for the two years (I think, might be three, I can’t remember) I’ve had it but I could use a new one – I’m having to constantly make space for crap and I think mine might be reaching its life expectancy Log in to see images!

How the **** did you kill a Maxtor? Run it in the oven? Go skydiving and forget to give it a parachute? What the ****, Maxtors are ****ing indestructible…

Wow. That’s insane. In my experience, Maxtors never ****ing die. Some older ones run kinda hot, and quite loud, but they never… ever... ****ing die. Seagates are pretty good as well. But Western Digital drives die. Not just by a slight margin, but EVERY ****ING WESTERN DIGITAL DRIVE I EVER SEE is ****ing DEAD or DYING. They usually just stop spinning up, or clunk out and don’t start up properly, so you can’t even access a single byte of data (bad head/heads). But if I held onto every dead WD hard drive I’ve run across (I still have a small stack of them), it would take up a whole drawer. I can practically predict what kind of hard drive is in a computer… if it’s a desktop computer and it has hard drive problems, I can just say “let me guess, Western Digital”, and sure enough, WD. Every ****ing time.

My experience with Seagate is interesting though. One hard drive, it was pbumword-protected and I just wanted a ****ing hard drive, didn’t care what was on it. I cleared the drive with the master pbumword and it was good to go! Another drive was totally unusable… wouldn’t read everything, always jammed up. I spent a couple nights on a looped erase function, then a looped read-and-remap function, and now I’ve got the hard drive 100% working great with no bad sectors at all. Quite amazing how resilient Seagates are. Log in to see images!

QFT.

Also, every newer HDD is ****. No matter what’s on the label, it’s Made in People’s Republic of China, so you* can wave bye-bye to your ****ty illusions that your brand > some other brand.

Don’t worry, all HDD will only die at the worst possible time. So you got some time yet.
