Default WD is God

I always like Western Digital. I had to RMA many drives from them, but I always got swift and excellent service.

Last week, I had to RMA a 320GB WD3500AAKS. I had it for a few years, but it was still under warranty.

Today I get back a 500GB WD5000AAKS Caviar Blue

I had this type of thing happen before, but this is the first time it happened while in TF

Same, Slaymate. Other than my OCZ 30GB SSD, all my current drives are Western Digital. I have some old Seagates that still work from ~2003

My very first computer way back in the day had Quantum Fireball 500MB drives in it. After that i had nothing but Maxtor drives. When Maxtor got bought out by Seagate i still had a 500gb sata2 drive running strong, as well as my 64gb SSD. This time last year is when that 500gb died probably due to heat. Sometime in November for ****s and giggles i called up Seagate to see if i could get it replaced. They sent me back an LP 1tb drive thats now sitting in my server being full. Only other hard drive purchase has been a Seagate 2tb drive. Ive recieved various WD drives over the years but never purchased one myself. I cant even remember how, but i managed to score a 160gb WD Black 2.5" drive. Thing has been rockin as my USB external backup drive for a long time now. Fastest USB 2.0 performance ive ever seen.

My 1st hard drive had a whopping 120MB. I had 3 computers before that one and 2 of them had 5-1/4" floppy drives and one of them used a cassette tape.
