Default Seagate aquires Samsung HD division

Samsung Hard Drives Now Belong to Seagate - NYTimes.com

Welp... There goes one of the top of the line HD's down the crapper. Guess I'll have to stick with WD from now on.

I'd have to personally disagree, I've never had luck with Samsung hard drives. Maybe now they'll get better.

I can't decide which is crappier, Samsung or Seagate. I've had problems with both...

Never had problems with Seagate. All my Seagate drives never failed on me, even the ones that's 10+ years old.
I'm glad Seagate acquired Samsungs HDD division. Makes the RMA so much easier with their advanced RMA. The only bad thing is Seagate's advanced RMA cost $10 more than WD (free for WD iirc).

IMO, all HDD is the same. They all fail eventually, so I just get the cheaper one if it was for storage.

With people favoring SSDs, flash storage, and cloud computing, the HDD business isn't profitable anymore. It's not like 5 years ago when there was a real difference in quality between manufacturers.
