I was thinking about buying this hard drive but looked it up on newegg and a lot of people said that it died on them shortly after they bought it: . Is it true that this hard drive commonly dies? I'm wanting to buy a computer from puget, and due to there being so few hard drives to choose from, I don't really have much of a choice.

I've been using one of those drives for a little over 2 years now and not had any problems with it.

I've had an AAKS drive die on me. Drives die all the time.

I have a AAJS 250GB still going strong.

These drives don't die commonly.
