    I'm still not buying Seagate until at least 2022. In that year, I'll do a bunch of research to see if their failure rates are still as high as before, and if so, I won't buy them for yet another decade.

    I didn't realize Seagate was already labeled as a failure with SSD. Apples to oranges, if you are going to drag their mechanical failures over into the SSD segment.

    That would mean you might not buy a Seagate drive, until 2032. Do the math. Would you check again in 2032, or just give up and buy one? How do you know we'll even need mechanical HDDs in 2032? We might be using tanks full of algae to store data. Meh, but then again, 'Backblaze' will probably kill all the Seagate algae, and make it look like Seagate's fault.

    I wouldn't "give up and buy one," I'd shop Seagate's main competitors. And I don't mean just their mechanical hard drives, I'm boycotting all of their products, software and hardware, until 2022. Why shop a brand that can't design and QA their products properly, and can't fix their mistakes after years of customer complaints?
