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.

I always enjoy the backblaze hdd failure rates, it's the nerd in me.

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

HGST FTW!

LibreOffice to the rescue. Will office 365 follow suit?
