I don't know, reading that their failure rates are consistent with industry norms now. It seems like they will never live down the 3TB MD0001 debacle during the Thailand flood. I already see people parroting Seagate has 29% failure rates on other forums but they don't seem to realize they're looking at annualized rate based on a single model drive failure in a pool of 60 drives LOL.

I'm not sure I would call their testing scenarios realistic for end users either but oh well.

Likewise and, unsurprisingly, Seagate is the failure rate leader. This is, what, their third or fourth year in a row?

LibreOffice to the rescue. Will office 365 follow suit?
