    Someone I know who says he knows about computer hardware says
    "Hitachi disks are sh*t". As proof he posted this picture of two
    Hitachi disks in another thread here.

    Is he right? How can a picture of a disk can show it is bad? Just

    The picture was posted to show the dates of the HD drives, as you
    were plainly told in the thread, troll.
    That isn't what he told you, troll.

    Hitachi is shit too.. here is a pic of two of them that failed
    recently. One was made April 2011, one April 2013. They are dead
    and one didn't last a year.

    Is *ALL* he wrote concerning the pic and those drives.

    He also wrote this:

    For *some* reason you are fixated on why Dustin does not like
    Seagate HDD's. That is his opinion and he does not owe you a
    technical reply you won't understand anyway. If I asked him he
    would probably tell me, it's just a waste of time to explain shit to
    you and BD.

    I personally don't care exactly why he does not like Seagate, they
    are not on my top 5 list of preferred HDD's either. Now you have
    enough information from two techs, if you have a choice and the
    price is almost equal - don't take the Seagate; got it? That's all
    you need to know. Read reviews before buying one. I have never had a
    problem with Western Digital drives, that is my opinion based on
    years of experience.

    *** end copy/paste. I'm inclined to agree with him concerning WD
    drives. Although I did have a problem with one years ago, it was my
    fault; I was trying to do something to the drives firmware and it
    didn't go well. So that was on me.

    All of my own computers and systems I build for clients use WD
    drives. EOD for me.
