Default Re: The hard drive failure thread

Yea 1 or 2 year warranty on hard drives is bull, avoid at all costs, it just shows you the manufacturer knows they will not last!

Samsung Spinpoint
POH 12616 (525 Days)
Start / Stop Count 2071
Retired with Bad sectors. (Over 30MB)
Firmware was upgraded from 1AA01109 to 1AA01117 long before issues started, to fix a hang issue.


Western Digital
POH Unknown (Probably low)
Failed with clicking sound (Readarm can't find start track I guess)
This one was installed in a WD external drive thingy made entirely of plastic, drive was very warm in this stupid box!
