Windows 7: Oddball Harddrives

02 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
Hard Drives

In my years of building and repairing computers for a living I have seen pretty much every brand fail it happens with hard drives.... the brands I seen fail the most are Seagate/Maxtor and Western Digital but I think this is due to the fact that there seems to be a lot more of them in service than other brands.

With that being said I still prefer to use Western Digital drives but if I had to pick a next best drive I would have to say Samsung they make a well built quiet drive with good performance.

I just got off the phone with Seagate warranty, and I was surprised that this drive is among those with the firmware problem. When I had called about a previous drive problem with another of the quartet, they said that it wasn't effected, so I guess that what I was sent was from a potpourri of souces, even though they came from the same seller at the same time.

This being the case, I may give Seagate another shot, primarily because their 1TB drive is the fastest in class + it is slightly cheaper than it's WDC counterpart.
