> Apparently, their failure rate is something like 32%?!  Not sure if it's that bad but it must be
high.  Reason I mention it is I have a failed 3TB drive.  Luckily, anything I had on it was
backed-up elsewhere and I didn't use it much but it kicked the bucket after less than 1.5 years. 
What it appears happened was that instead of using five platters in the drive, they used 3 at 1TB
each.  Something went wrong.

stable after 3 years and in the unstable Cretan electricity (many wind 
turbines and photovoltaics, unfortunately).My main drive is a class 5 
Intel SSD, with win 10 my ssytem boots in less than 20 secs! (Hope I'm 
not opening a can of worms, though).
