Great info, for those of you deciding on which hard drive to get:

A picture is worth a thousand words:


I stopped buying seagates years ago, precisely because of the failure rates I experienced first hand. They used to be good too, which is sad.

These struck me as particularly and spectacularly bad:

:: Code ::
Seagate Barracuda 7200
(ST31500341AS)    1.5TB    539    3.8    25.4%

Seagate Barracuda Green
(ST1500DL003)    1.5TB    51    0.8    120.0%
