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.
