  1. Now, see, I just plain don't like you because you come across as a pompous scumbag figurehead. Maybe if your "website" was more than a month old and filed with something recognizable as more than elaborate filler material, I'd think more of you and your "credentials." Maybe if it was hosted by a company that put more than ads into their WHOIS data. Maybe if you didn't constantly belittle the amount of effort put into this problem by CONSUMERS regardless of the outright failures and lies of the Seagate PR department. Who knows - maybe I'm just too picky when it comes to people. I'd like to think that people who'd post on this topic would either be people afflicted with the problem, owners of hardware they are concerned will soon fail, or people trying to help by posting constructive information - not people that site there and link to their month old depository of Seagate handjobs at EVERY POSSIBLE CHANCE. So either you're being paid or you hope to be paid. Also, make up your mind. You say on your site, and I quote, "...ships 10,000,000 Barracuda disk drives a month..." - and yet you chide jaclaz for his numbers. Your 120,000,000 drives a year and his 111,111,111 drives a year are remarkably similar, don't you think? Actually, your number is higher. Huh. You estimate a 1:65,536 chance at failure. You honestly think there's only about 1,800 drives that will ever be affected by this issue? Seagate wouldn't even have an intern look at a problem that small, let alone stonewall for months, release firmware updates, and offer free data recovery. They'll end up spending a lot more than the $10,000 they made selling those drives. Anyways.
  2. So anyone on the west coast get an HD Doctor yet? I'd buy one in a heart beat (always wanted to get into computer repair in a professional capacity), but unemployment makes the $500 pricetag rather...insurmountable. lol
  3. Just a couple ideas... My PCB has some excessive tarnishing on most of the silver areas. Anyone else? The PCB is labeled as, "PCB 100466725 REV A DLAJ-4" Mine was an OEM drive purchased from Newegg. Any retail drives dying?
