Cute song.

However not to burst anyone's bubble I have used Hitachi/ibm drives in the past and they had the worst failure rate. I hope this solves their problem of bad sectors. Mostly it was with the Deskstar line of drives with I like to call the "DeathStar" line of drives. I lost so much data using those. There was even a class action suit regarding the laptop deskstar and desktop deskstar drives. Currently Dell insprion and latitude laptops made before this year have those drives installed. They will crash! In my shop we replace on average 3-4 drives a week and they are all Hitachi deskstar or IBM branded Hitachi Deskstar drives.

Be careful and backup!

Worse than Western Digital?? I tell ya, my 240 gig WD drive is down to about 80gb due to all the bad sectors. I'm afraid to use it for anything except temporary holding during transfers.
