    Was it an IBM drive by any chance?

    Well, if they were willing to RMA the drive, I certainly would have given them the opportunity too.

    But at this point, I'd drop 'em like the proverbial hot potato and never look back. I mean....I'd be P#$$ed!

    I think every drive manufacturer has bad batches. I remember back about 4-5 years, IDE segate drives were a dirty word. I remember the company I used to work for sold 50-60 workstations with seagate drives to a school, and ATLEAST two thirds of those drives had to be replaced, and even a very high percentage (50% +) of the replacement drives had to be replaced. We ended up changing suppliers because they refused to sell any other brand.

    The way I see it is they do in fact have all there flaws. IBM seems to be the fastest performing drive cause of the more buffer space that it has. But it comes with a price the circuit board over heats causing the click of death sounds. I myself have an IBM Deskstar drive and I don't have anyproblems with it. Maxtor and Western Digital I think seem to be the same with quality and prices I'm not sure about seagate I never used them.
