Specs: Windows XP, 2GB
I meant IBM for subject

You know before Hitachi/IBM Deskstar before they used to fail a lot.
(from wiki) The IBM Deskstar 75GXP (as well as several other models made around the same time) became infamous for their reportedly high failure rates, with less than a quarter of them lasting for more than six months into their warranties.
Last time I owned a deskstar in 2002 it failed in early 2003.
few people I knew had same problems around same year.

So what about deathstar (deskstar) today?
Do they still fail a lot.

Far as I know all the deathstar crap was history years ago.

Would you expect a company to keep marketing a product like that after 8 years?

Normally company will still market stuff if people still buy from them.

Their products are super low price.
I can't find info on the net about their products today.

On wikipedia it doesn't say if they change their behavior after those lawsuits against their defective HD.

Some company sell bad quality stuff but if people still buy from them because of extreme low prices they will still make money and get away with selling bad quality products.
