I have 4 WD internal drives including a WD320AAKS which is over 3 years old, 4 external WD in enclosures some of which are over 3 years old, the newest over 1 year.
I have had a number of other WD's over a 20 year period and have not had one die.
I still have some old 80 GB's drives I removed and even a 40 GB that still work.
So either you have been unlucky or these pc's sustained a hard jolt while they were working, like someone or something banging into them.
