I'm searching a good 500gb or 1TB gb Hard drive (HDD) and all Im seeing is that the majority of comments and posts on the site are people saying DOA DOA DOA!!! and that Didn't last over 1 year...and All these stuff....I Just want a good hard drive dammit! A true one could last up to 5/6 years unless your very excessive with it (Copying and lots of using everyday)...I mean my main HDD which came with my computer which i'm using now, is still working fine with windows 7 and programs since 2008! Sure somethings might of happened temporarily to it and I lost all my stuff and had to reinstall windows but never died out fully since I got it...my second one for storage died after 3years something probably.....Replaced it with a WD Blue 500gb 16mb cache one since almost 9 months ago I believe....It worked fine..but im scared if soon it will just die on me like many say died around 1 year or 1 year and a half...But so far its pefecto :) And when I get my new build for storage im hopping to get another of the same I have now (WD Blue 500GB)..Just too many worries with all these DOAs and weird problems.. Help anyone? :/

I'm Sorry did someone say that if I continue to spam I will be banned? Was that intended to me? If so then I'm speechless. I'm not spamming Im posting concerns and questions about different parts of hardware sheesh. If not then good :) :)
I have never had a WD fail, and I'm running them for upto 7 years now. Had plenty of Maxtors, and Seagates arrive dead on my doorstep. My Panasonic still works fine after nearly 20 years.
I see, so for you WD is good and Panasonic. Well after some more research Im probably gonna stick with getting a Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 16mb cache. How does that sound to you? Right now I have it on this computer and it works perfectly so far since about 8-11 Months ago when I installed it.
