I have supported Western Digital hard drives for a long time. But after my 4th Western Digital HD failed within 2 years of its purchase date, I have decided to go Seagate. Seagate has a 5 year warranty on their drives, whereas WD only has 1 year on their OEM drives, and 3 years on their retail kits. I just got a new OEM Seagate 400 GB 7200.10 SATA2 drive. It seems to be working well so far. It sucks, I shouldn't have to replace my HD every year. We'll see if the switch to Seagate improves this. I need to get a nice external HD for backup, but whose to say that that won't fail sometime in the future?
