Hard disk reliability
I was under the impression that hard disk reliablity doesn't vary much b/w the different manufacturers.
Hard disk reviews only report price/performance data.
In a study that was conducted on hard disk life/reliability (sorry don't remember where i read it ) showed that some batches of disks were faulty and failed prematurely. I suppose this can happen with any manufacturer, but what was surprising was that disks from a particular manufacturer had a (significantly) higher rate of failure (across various models) compared to the other brands.
What's your experience on this?
