However I've seen many Seagate 7200.11 and .12 dying lately, so I tend to avoid them. m 0 l yo_yo2400 January 12, 2011 1:59:41 PM How does this look? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I've hard alot of bad about "deathstars". m 0 l dg27 January 12, 2011 11:17:17 PM With four two desktops that have a total of 15 drives, I've learned that there are really only two types of drives out there: 1. Those that have died. 2. Those that will die soon. For that reason, I tend to buy drives that get great reviews (I don't try to cut corners), but also have the best warranty policies. I have been using WD Caviar Black drives for a few years and yes, I did have one die on 12/31/10, but WD sent a new one the same day. dg m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
