Drive Failure After 1 Month 12/03/2013
Boot and App Load Performance close to SSD speed.
I first used a Momentus XT 500 for a couple of years and wanted to upgrade to a 750 for the added SSD cache, so I cloned my 500 up to the 750 using Acronis True Image. It worked fine for over a month and I did notice increased speed in boot and application load times. After a reasonable burn-in period, I used the old XT500GB drive for something else and right after that, I went to turn on my laptop and the heads were clicking and It was all gone. All of my data and everything.
I know I'm an idiot for not backing up my turbo tax data and other important info. However, I have never had a brand new hard drive fail like that after just one month. Usually there is some kind of warning if bad sectors and read errors start occuring. Just sucks for me!
