Hard drive failure rates

[link to this post]
Interesting data-centre blog here giving hard disk failure rates for 49,000 drives.

Re: Hard drive failure rates

[re: micksharpe] [link to this post]
It seems as if seagate have got the highest number of failures unless I am reading it wrong. I never liked Seagate much anyway. the best spinny drive I had was a Hitachi desk star or Death star as they was called, the most reliable I have ever had and still working, but coming out of my machine next week. Just ordered myself a Corsair XT, a 240GB SSD. So the 250GB hitachi will come out, the XT will replace my old Corsair 120GB SSD, the old Seagate hybrid will stay in as will the 2TB Toshiba drive.
