  1. Seagate on Tuesday announced a new line of hard drives designed specifically for network attached storage (NAS) usage in mind. The specialized drives, meant to be run 24 hours a day in small to midsized business environments, will be available...

  2. Seagate should work on finally making quality products in the consumer Hard drive division first before they stray into NAS territory.
  3. If you are implying that Seagate make mediocre products in the consumer division then you couldn't be more wrong. I owned eleven of these (one of which is nine years old) and not a single one of them has failed me yet.

    My Seagate HD103SJ is crap compared to my proper Samsung HD103SJ.

    Samsung drives are god-tier. Shame they sold out to Shitgate.
  8. I have the exact same model (Seagate) and it is not crap compared to my Samsung HD103SJ (yes, I owned that one too). Beside your so-called "Shitgate", can you name one or several hard drive manufacturers that you don't consider as crap?
  9. Iv had good luck with WD. I only buy Black/Red/Blues though. And I agree that Samsung made a good hard drive before "shitgate" bought them. Same goes for Maxtor before the same happened. I dont buy Hitachi drives, but not for any specific reason. When I say a hard drive is good, I mean it gives 5 or more years of no issues. Any time I open up a computer and see a "shitgate" hard drive. I work on getting it replaced. And never give it to anyone with important files. I figure its better to replace ASAP rather than when its needed and eventually starts clicking and craps out like all the others iv used. Ill take a reasonable guess and say that iv thrown away 50+ Seagate drives, 2 samsungs(although I don't see them much), and maybe 8-9 WDs(most common drive) in the last 5 years.

    In other words you have thrown a countless number of good HDD away, simply because of the brand name Seagate. Talk about discrediting yourself, there is no need in saying anything further.
  11. I Threw them away BECAUSE they were defective/dead/bad. The word "replaced" was the key here. I keep the older Seagates for ''replacements'' in outdated computers which do not get much use.

    Maybe actually reading the comment rather then assuming, would help you in a situation such as this. You know, a situation where you look like a *******.

    And now you are craw fishing and trying to change what you initially said.

    If you wish to continue your story telling, please feel free to create a moniker. Anything you have to say as a guest, will be received with little to no weight as truth.
  13. Assumptions do not make up for ignorance or stupidity. Adding details to a story to correct your assumptions is not the same changing it. Making an account on this website is a side point to make you feel as if you have any kind of upper hand.

    You lose, end of story.

    I'm sorry but you are the one making contradictory statements. The idea of trying to convince me otherwise is a loss of time on your part.

    I'm not trying to win, I know my Seagate drives are good and don't deserve the crap talk you are dishing out.
