That was just one particular run, and they were desktop drives.
But they had a failure rate of about 10% and IBM got a big black
eye for it.

Hard drives fail.  It happens.  Use this as an opportunity
to get a bigger drive with a higher RPM.

The Hitachi 60GB 7200RPM is the best one you can buy.

Get one of the slick USB2 minature hard drive enclosures
to put your old 2.5" drive in.
