    I think you are referring to the IBM Deskstar HDDs before they were bought over by Hitachi. We used to call them Deathstars. :mrgreen:

    Yeah i've also used many drives while most failures were Seagates in my case & 1 WD failure but no Hitachi failure till date.I prefer Hitachis over Seagate.

    i got the seagate. was caught in between WD & seagate but eventually decided to give seagate another try since the review favour the seagate 500gb~! :confused:

    Seagate's .10 & .11 has improved a lot than the previous 7200.9 series.Specially the .10 based 250GB drive which i'm using now is a very fast drive because of the PR technology & having a single platter also should last more than the drives with 4-5 platters.Although the .10 250GB Seagate runs pretty fast but it's still 5-6C hotter than my other Hitachi drive.Anyways, anyone tried the WD VelociRaptor drives yet ? They are supposed to be the fastest drive ?

    I have a heap of drives, mainly WD and Samsung (and 400 or 500gb) and I have found that unless I actualy run a benchmark I cant tell the difference most of the time.

    That said, over the years I have killed less Samsungs then anything else :lol:
