I've stopped buying Seagate drives after 2 failures in a year.

Seagate has had some problems with failures recently. I have multiple WD drives and I haven't had any problems with them. I intend to keep buying WD drives.

Not surprised in the slightest. I've only purchased WD drives for all of my systems and for all of my external back ups. They have the best drives with the least bloatware, and I've never had to send one back, reformat it, or toss it. Reliability is key, as we already know. 

More than this, I wonder if OCZ will be able to hold on to its crown as the king of SSD after the 25 nm NAND fiasco that shamed the company into replacing customers drives with 34 nm ones. Despite my OCZ SSD's reliability, I am highly considering going with a Corsair SSD next time around.

Is anyone surprised?  The only thing that kept Seagate on top for so long was the 5 year warranty.  Now that the playing field is level, people are more open to spending money on the competition.

All those 1.5TB drive failures didn't help them either.

And don't forget that WD does this with a significantly smaller work-force.

Bravo!

(the duelling prairie dogs is quite fitting for all the Front Range Seagate folk for sure.  You guys should have photoshop'd Spicoli in there to represent WD - LMAO)

I work in a computer shop as the techician, and I don't want to put Seagate down but, I'v seen so many failed Seagate drives in my field of work that now I kinda shy away from them. WD drives have been in all my gaming systems for 13+ years and they never let me down.
