I replaced a WD last weekend. I have Maxtor, Quantum and Samsung in my systems
currently. The oldest is a used 300MB Maxtor that has to be at least 5 years
old. It sticks and makes a lot of noise when it starts up if it is allowed to
cool down but it generally runs 24x7 so that is not a problem.
WD is the only brand that I have seen go belly-up without warning. I am told
that WD has recognized the problem and has applied fixes.
