I thought Western Digital had bad failure rates? Was this only true in the old days? Have they done better in recent years? Back in the late 90's my friends and I came across so many dead WD drives that we now cringe whenever someone recommends a WD drive. I used to be a fan of Maxtor, but I have lost 3 drives in the past few years that all died right out of the 3 year warranty. So me and Maxtor are not friends anymore. I went Seagate with the FW400 drive I have for Time Machine. But it runs so hot that I think it will just up and die in the mac pro without some sort of third party hard drive cooler. This is easy in a PC, but unfortunatly, that luxury does not exist inside the Mac Pro. Bottom line, I think Seagates run too hot to be used in a tower w/o a hard drive cooler.
