Aside from a few very specific models, Seagate's fine. /g/ is just retarded, and can't manage anything but XvsY threads these days.

They never correctly test HDDs. They just list the ones they bought at the time which were the cheapest from each company that they used for their systems.

Same, i've had a 1tb seagate from my first build in 2010, its never given me a problem
Only problem is that I have about 20 gb left, so I'm gonna need another drive soon.

Should i stick with another seagate since it hasn't given me a problem, or is it just the newer drives that crap out?

>> No.56036496

the only bad seagate drives were the 1.5 tb

your mileage may vary.

keep in mind all hard drives eventually must fail. if this is casual storage you can basically do whatever you want.

I see, well i'd probably get another 1tb, considering it took me like 6 years to fill 1tb up, but gaymes are becoming 55+gb, so I may get 2tb instead, dunno.

Most hard drives will perform well on a desktop. These failure rate graphs are designed to calculate rates in a very high stress environment with lots of read/write cycles such as as datacentres. Some of these graphs are also pretty ibflated due to recent crisis in hdd failures happening.

Really, just buy whatever.

Seagate is pretty nice if you're on a tight budget, their drives are usually cheaper and they have a lot of different capacities for their drives, even up to 10 tb. You can get a 10 tb wd gold but you have to fork over like $700 for it (although you get a 5 year warranty and 24/7 customer support, which is more than what seagate offers).

Always trusted Seagate. Not a single drive failed on me for 8+ years. I even have one that I smashed by landing my bag on and it still works if I give it cpr.
