Re: why is this HDD so expensive?
If 100 people in a short span report issues, then its quite easy to believe theres an issue. This is what hes saying. Hes not saying to believe a review, but believe the review trend.
Just because somethings top notch, doesn't mean there can't be bad batches and such.
Its exactly like the q6600. Intels ultimate chip 3 yrs ago, but then suddenly they stopped oc'n well. This was starting to come out in egg reviews and such, so now the once brilliant chip stArted having issues, so people started avoiding it.
Same thing happened with Ballistix ram.
