Too bad Seawaste is junk that will lose your data if it ever works at all - seriously, read the user reviews in NewEgg and tell me if you'd trust your data to one of these disposable drives. You get what you pay for, sometimes not even that. I have never had a WD drive fail prematurely. I even still have a few WD IDE drives from 10 years ago that still work. People say the WD green drives are failure-prone, but I have 2 of the 2TB models that are still going strong after 2 years. I paid just $79.99 for each of them. The WD black drives are more expensive, but run faster and rarely fail, plus they have a 5 year warranty instead of 2 years. The best deal I've seen is the WD Mybook 3TB external drive for $150, but these use the green drives and seem to have a high failure rate.
