    Sadly drives are hit and miss. I've had some poor luck with Seagate, but that's what we used for our customer builds. Just had a rash of them dying sadly.

    I've been pretty happy with my 8TB WD (Hitachi) Red helium drives in the desktop. I only have 15k hours on them, but no issues so far.

    Tell me how you calculate MTBF or hrs left(Is it POH readings from SMART?)
    For me its complete opposite Seagates lasted longer while WD died just after warranty twice. For my clients, Seagates were horrendous and they stick with WD.

    The 15k hours is power on hours.

    I think those are the ones I am going to be using actually. 4x4 tb in a raid 10 setup.

    I saw a 1 TB 2.5" true SSD on NewEgg for $99 yesterday. I'd invest in that over a spinner any day of the week...

    I have 2 Kingston SSD now. I paid 94.00 Canadian for my 1TB drive and 78.99 for my wifes 500gb version. They are great. I am ordering another 500gb for my son's acer S3 along with a new battery. His will be a great little computer for another few years.
