I've used Seagate for over 10 years. Only 2 have failed out of about 20
that I've used. But others have reported less success.

WD, on the other hand, have failed at the rate of one every 3 or 4 for
me. Some models have failed more than others. I have 2 13GB that are
ancient and have given no problems. I lost 2 40GB at almost the same
time, both WD.
