3 out of 5 eggsSwearing I'll do better backups from now on

Pros: Was delighted with this drive for 16.5 months.

Inexpensive, quiet, speedy, low power consumption, worked great in my macbook.

3 year warranty.

Cons: at 16.5 months, kernel crash and won't boot. Linux utilities report many read errors, DRD RDY errors. SMART utilities say the drive is healthy, attempting to actually reading the data, not so much.

Other Thoughts: Picking up a couple of 2TB drives and going to become disciplined about backups. All hard drives will fail.

Still hoping to recover data off the drive, but I do have copies of the most critical data...
