The plebs are joking about something from the turn of the centrury
The old IBM deskstars from around 2000 had a glass platter covered in magnetic material which was not as durable as the metal platters and the drives failed quickly, later IBM models were as reliable as other brands. The Hitachi (post 2003) branded ones have always been as reliable as other brands.

As for HDD reliability, people forget that Seagate nearly bankrupted Amstrad by supplying a bad batch of drives for their PCs around 1990! I know when I first entered the IT world back in the late 90s, my bosses would specify that any pcs or servers must not use seagate discs

They really should have changed the name of the drive then. Deskstars were notorious back then, I had one fail within a year of having it and i knew at least 6 people who also had one fail quickly, and it was all over the internet that they were destined to fail and no one would ever touch them again no matter what. To keep the name after they changed them was a stupid idea as I know tons of people who will never touch a 'Deskstar'.
