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 :D

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.
