Seagates Better than Western Digital 04/02/2010
I've purchased 34 Seagate & Western Digital 1.5Tb/2.0 Tb SATA hard drives in the last 3 months for Raid 5 towers. The Seagates have had less initial failures than the WD drives. Have not been able to get any of the 6 WD Green 2.0Tb HDs to work in four different Raid-5 towers, plus they are slow at reading and writing. Much slower than other 5900 rpm drives.
This Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB has only an 18 month OEM warranty from Seagate when purchased from NEWEGG. Six drives with same part number that I purchased from TD in January for $12 more have a 5 year Seagate warranty.
I learned the hard way...This is why Newegg does not post Mfg warranty for this drive. Buyer beware.
