Wanted to see what everyones opinion is. For me it seems that WD fails. I have not have 1 drive last longer than 2 years from them (this being laptop Blue drives, green desktop and laptop drives, some blacks) and it's all bad. I just had a 1TB My PassPort bite the dust. Now all my Time Machine backups gone. However on the flip side, I've had Seagate drives for years on end and have never needed to RMA one of them.
