For me, Hard drive brand loyalty is something personal to the user, which they learn from experience alone. I don't like to push my opinion on people about it.
They were still good 2 years ago. It was within the last year when they started going way down. I used to be all Seagate, but if I were to buy a brand new hard drive now id get myself a WD. You can get brand new Seagates that come with dead sectors on arrival, or even worse, DOA. Im not trying to push you from not getting a Seagate, im merely just giving some advise, and prewarning people who may be buying a seagate hard drive.
