If you're interested in large statistical samples, on a grand total of
4000 1 TB Seagate Barracuda ES2, I had to replace 2100 of them over the
course of 3 years. I still have a couple of hundred of these
unfortunate pieces of crap in service, and they still represent the
vast majority of unexpected RAID malfunctions, urgent replacements,
late night calls and other "interesting side activities".

I wouldn't buy anything labeled Seagate nowadays. Their drives have
been the baddest train wreck since the dreaded 9 GB Micropolis back in
1994 (or was it 1995?).
