|Published, maybe, but all problems I have had were Seagate and for a while I was keeping a rough count here and Seagate was way higher complaint on failure on posts I remember reading and answering. If they factor in enterprise level drives and count that they probably sell more to system manufacturers, that is where they fudge the numbers. Enterprise level drives are tested to a higher level and marginal ones are rejected before entering the market. System manufacturers are warrantying their drives themselves and though they are counting them as drives sold, they do not count the defects because of this. What I assume I have noticed is that they are not as demanding on the quality control on their retail level drives as WD appears to be and WD treats their Black series drives as the premium level quality that they have become.|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
