I recently sold my 500Gb Seagate to my friend cause he needed a drive and I had to send my motherboard to Asus for RMA, and soon will be looking to purchase a 750Gb or 1Tb drive. I've been looking at HD's from Seagate, WD, and Samsung. It seems the F1's are all the rage and are pretty high on people's list of HD recommendations. I've read reviews on all the manufacturers I listed but newegg reviews, I generally take them with a grain of salt, kind of have me worried cause it seems there are alot of failures shortly after receiving them. Anyone here have a F1 and if so how have they been from 6 months on. Warranty doesn't really concern me as long as it's not 1 year cause I generally don't keep hardware that long. Any info much appreciated.
