Exactly right except the IBM Deskstars. Those disks were absolutely unstoppable until they sold off their goods to fujitsu. I'm sure we'll say the same about the Thinkpads. :(

My IBM Deskstar 1.7G was one of the fastest drives of its class (if not the fastest) and it lasted me up until the present. That's almost NINE YEARS! :O Insane! Unthinkable that this drive is so bad now that they're called the Deathstars... :P
