foxxx428 Posted December 14, 2007 Share Posted December 14, 2007 It's hard to say which is better. I've sold all kinds and mostly they are all pretty good (Maxtor, WD, Seagate). The only brand I've consistantly had problems with is Hitachi. Every brand has a bad apple once in a while. If you are repeatedly burning out drives, it's most likely beyond luck. Google did a study of hd's on their servers and they claim the temperature did not affect the lifespan. I don't buy it but who knows. Possibly a bad power supply giving it inconsistant power or even power surges. Brownouts are really bad. Surge strips don't stand a chance against them.
