I have absolutely no oppinion. I was merely pointing out that the OP was presenting his oppinion as fact and I thought that pretty messed up.

Grented, due to the inciteful the subject was, I'm sure this thread will keep going for at least a week and most of us will remember something bad about WD the next time we go buy a disc. Oh well. The OP probably  got his wish :)

It's been a few years since I retired, but I remember the IT guys replacing a _lot_ of Western Digital drives.  I guess the
company bought them because they were cheaper, but I don't think they saved any money.  For my own use, I have been using Seagate and
Hitachi, and have had no trouble in quite some time.  Obviously, YMMV, but what I saw sould not encourage me to buy WD.
