I never see the Amazon credit card advertised on Amazon. Is it the Bank of America card?

WARNING: I just got it through the post and found out Seagate owns Samsung's HDD business. I don't know how I feel about this. I was deliberately avoiding Seagate because of their reputation. I think I'll return it.

Only 3 HDD manufacturers market these days: WDC, Seagate Technology (includes Seagate, Samsung and Maxtor) and Toshiba (includes HGST (formerly Hitachi))

I was too scared and returned this. Ordered a WD drive instead. It's just too risky. Had two Seagate drives fail on me before. I don't know if failure rates have fallen since then.

Seagate are still regarded as the least reliable manufacturer so returning the drive wasn't an irrational decision. I have only good words for WD, use 3 of their 2TB drives in my HP Microserver and they just do their job - nothing else need be said.

Never had one of these but know of people that have had them failing. I've only ever had WD and have nothing but praise. First one I ever owned was a 250gb and it survived many drops and is still running in a friends laptop.

Straw man argument
Lidl's milk tastes the worst out of the local shops round here, I'm sure it couldn't be compared to the taste of urine but your argument makes no allowances for that.
...In fact it tastes ok.

Hard drive hyperbole....don't you just love it.

I heard that someone had a hard drive that failed once so I'm never going to by a hard drive.

1) That's not what a straw man fallacy is.

2) Your argument exhibits the fallacy fallacy.

3) Seagate drives have a nearly 30% failure rate after only three years of use which is definitely something worth being worried about:

That's a chart for 3.5 inch hard drives, rookie.

Apropos of nothing, Lidl milk comes from Arla and Dairy Crest the same as Sainsburys and Morrisons.

Well, Seagate quality arguments aside, you can get a Seagate 2TB NAS for £80, so not that great a deal, unless you need the portability, I suppose...
#16
I've been running the 1tb version of this for the past 18months and I've had no trouble at all.

I use it exclusively to watch media transferred from my PC onto my Samsung TV and it loads up instantaneously.

Love how compact and portable it is.
#17
I got this last month. Works very well. Didn't use the software that came with it so can't comment on that. It's very fast, I'm accessing over network through USB on back of router and it works very well.

It's worth using Flubit for this item - they offered me a great price, a much greater saving than some other items I've flubited in the past.

I agree with this. Had seagate before and most of them had problems. My WD green was perfect tho.

the full story on that bacblaze chart is quite longwinded ... suffice to say it is less than worthless for reliability.
But generates them a lot clicks..
