Merrrrr seagate, I had a bad time with an internal hard drive a few years back. Have they gotten any better?

@polishemt:

I can say that I have had good experiences for my last two internal Seagate drives - a 2TB 7200rpm Barracuda and a 3TB 7200rpm Barracuda. Both were my main storage and program drives with a SSD for a boot drive.

I can't comment on the external drives, but it would stand to reason that as long as they have decent ventilation that heat (IMO, the biggest killer of mechanical drives) shouldn't be an issue. I can't get to the link here at work to verify if this is a 7200rpm or 5900rpm drive, but I would definitely consider one of these for a backup solution if I didn't have one already.

I was just considering buying a Western Digital 3 TB USB 3 drive locally for $129.99.

This one is $20 less. Add to that, no shipping charge, no driving through traffice to the store no waiting in line and no sales tax. That makes this a no brainer.

I'm in for one.
