I have had three 1TB drives from China. All have went bad and was replaced by drives from Thailand. Friend has also had one from China go bad as well. When you go to buy the 1TB drives, it is hit or miss as to what you get. With that said, I am not sure there is a difference as the 1TB drive from Seagate has been plagued with issues and firmware upgrade required... not found issues in 1.5TB or 2TB.

None of the above.

I am not sure if there are news blackouts or some sot. The last time I had read about the 7200.10 and 7200.11 problem was all about 1TB and above.

They said 320gb 7200.11 are not affected with bug, well I can believe it was not affected, but however, it was failing...

I have;

1. 4pcs 320gb Barracuda, all dropping like dead flies for the past 5 months. The last one I had is still running, but now it is already making some signs of the inevitable.

2. 2pcs 1TB, both already dead.

Bought another Seagate, this time its 7200.12, 2 pcs 640gb, one of the disk failed after 3 weeks (cannot be detected by the BIOS)

Switched to Western Digital, the first one I had was 2 years ago, 80gb IDE, and its still running. Bought 2x 74GB raptor (a year ago), still running.

Now I am buying the Caviar black and green, with 1 Terabyte...

I am done with Seagate.
