This is good news. They have zero quality control,yet boast about being a top manufacturer.

Didn't Seagate start making SSDs yet?
They've been making enterprise SSDs for a while. They ventured into the consumer SSD market for a while, but then stopped. I'd guess they will start back up again in the near future just like WD has.

There's a good reason Seagate owns LSI, time to put it to use already
It would seem they are putting that LSI IP to use finally. They are supposedly working on a controller that can access a lot more NAND chips than current controllers and working on a large capacity SSD that will be in the 3.5" form factor.

Oh, remember the deathstars when they were with IBM?
Yep. They've come a long way since then though lol.

When HGST owned them, they were effectively Ultrastar drives that failed the enterprise tests in some way. I have no idea what Toshiba is doing though.

Is this gonna be WD vs Seagate type of thread?
Because screw em, screw em both. Both have horrible RMA rates, both are equally unreliable for home use (not server use), both a slow and horrible for a modern day use in 2017, or 2016, or 2015... or 2014.

Thank goodness for the reduction in HDD production
Yes, hard drives in their current form have been commercially available since 1956 - you'd think after 60 years, someone would figure out how to make them cheap and reliable, not just cheap! I'd say that 30 years ago, they were more reliable (but expensive), and all the "advancements" since then were ways to decrease manufacturing costs. Similar to the history of SSDs - they're now much cheaper, but less reliable (SLC's a thing of the past, MLC is headed that way, now it's mostly TLC with low endurance).

Lost faith in Seagate when I bought an ST3000, which I just found out had a class action filed against it last year, about 6 months after I got it I saw a FW update with no description, asked tech support what the update was for, they had no idea, and if I remember correctly they told me to just ignore it if I wasn't having problems. A year and a half later I bought Skyrim and was playing through it my first time and all of a sudden I hear a strange beeping noise and the game froze, used task manager to close the game and that was it, drive never worked again.

Of course I've had issues with WD too, a while back bought a WD Green drive back when they came with 5 year warranties, within the first year started having issues, did a disk repair seemed to fix it, eventually I did have to RMA, got a refurbished drive which worked fine, of course after the first drive started failing I discovered that the drives apparently had an issue with head parking.

Long story short HDD don't last anywhere near as long as they use to, and HDD prices may go up because of this.

They are really just the successors to the HGST Deskstar line, which they aquired.
WD?

No, Toshiba. Initially WD did aquire HGST wholly, but regulators forced them to allow Toshiba to aquire the Deskstar line of 3.5" drives.

WD kept the server Ultrastar 3.5" line, and the Travelstar 2.5" line.

You are lucky! I've lost so many hdds to bad sectors, and then there is the mountain of laptops and PCs that my friends and family have brought for hdd replacements. It's staggering imo how many failed hdds have passed through my hands. Knock on wood, no ssd failures yet ...

The WORST are the portable USB drives, which are failing like flies. No bad nobody mentioned that. And tbh, this is a common issues with almost ALL manufacturers. I have a small Samsung USB 2.0 drive which still goes strong though...

HDD Prices STILL haven't returned to normal after the 2011 floods and now this is only going to drive them higher, I'm almost tempted to think they are doing this deliberately to drive up prices >.>

They didn't return to normal? They were pretty much at an all time low per GB.

The price per GB today is roughly the same as it was in 2011, but the thing is it is not normal for prices per GB to be the same as they were 6 years ago, they should be lower. Hence prices still being high due to the 2011 floods.

I had a western digital purple arrive with 60% bad sectors. After I scanned the id/sn and verified that it was genuine. Which wd's website tolde it was I rma'ed it. Waiting weeks for a reply. They told me to send it in for a check which I had to pay for. And after around 1 1/2 months of several failed attempt of contact they finally replied and told me they never got the drive. Even though postal service assured me they did since they had a signature from wd. When I told we the story they suddenly found the drive and told me it was fake and closed the case.
They refused to do anything more. Which is why I never buy wd products anymore.

Count yourself lucky then. It's probably the one part in a PC that has the least longevity. I start making funeral arrangements as soon as I buy an HDD, so don't understand this hate for one company or another.

Luckily, most of mine keep on truckin long after SMART says they shouldn't.

No good for all the workers there, but yes there drives are terrible and I just dont see anyone buying or using them around here anymore. Id even buy a WD Blue over a seagate drive. Yes I have a few old Segate drives still working but no where near as many WD drives still working. Heck even my mate that HATED WD and only bought Seagates now buys WD drives lol, proof is in the pudding.

Had a lot of different drives over the years, and the ones to die the most on me are WD drives. On two of them, electronics died rather than the platters itself. On the other hand, one of the oldest drives I have is a first gen Raptor 36GB, funny enough that one is still going strong. Noisy as hell, but without a single issue, dad is using it in his pc at this very moment as main boot. Had a couple of Maxtors, one died (first gen SATA drive, enormous amount of bad sectors after 1 year), and a couple of low capacity Seagates (160-320GB) which still live in dad's pc or were alive while I had them.

Aside from specific models of drives with specific firmware, I don't think there is really any reliability difference between major manufacturers. I have had loads of drives over the years from Maxtor, WD, Seagate, Toshiba, IVM, Quantum, Connor, Fujitsu, Hitachi, etc and never seen any brand to be more/less reliable than others.

this is a good move on seagates part, the industry is moving toward a place where consumers wont be buying hdd, but rather only business and enterprise for server use, any hard drive under 2tb right now might as well be an ssd. concentrate resources on higher capacity drives for data center use.

Oh hell no it didn't work. The cover was contacting the platters...

WD sends used drives for RMA replacements just like Seagate.
just like everyone. If you have a refurb sitting on the shelf are you going to pass it up and send the new? For what purpose are you refurbing then?
