Yes, 2 more Seagate drives, 2 more failures. So now I have 4 bad Seagate drives.
I figured that, since Seagate was going to be half-way decent (after a bit of haggling) over the two new drives that failed, I'd use the long weekend to try out openSUSE 10.3 - so I bought 2 more Seagate drives, exact same make and model, from a different supplier.
An hour ago, one of the drives started making funny noises
Seagate 320 gig hard drives - ST320620A - avoid them like the plague!
Its pretty bad when I have to depend on the out-of-warranty +10,000 hours operating time Western Digital 250 gig that's been running in that same box for the last 3 years, because 4 brand new Seagate drives are just so much crap!
Well, look on the bright side
Still, what a way to waste 2 days of work on a long weekend
