    i know... i was just mocking seagate for that one. lol. i knew you didn't write that.
  5. This sound like an star trek thing, hehehe.

    This looks like an excellent product with much thought put into the development process.

    I've rocked Seagate, Western Digital, Hitachi, Fujitsu and Samsung in the past and they were all reliable. If anything the Western Digitals and Samsungs took the most abuse. But Seagate showed no signs of failure either. I don't think you can compare Magnetic Platter Drives with SSD's. Two different beasts.
