I have a pc 3 years old in september. acer that came with an Hatachi 500gb, I added the first week of ownership a Western Digital and 3 years and two months later the Western Digital failed. Even for a back up drive with very little on it I was rather disappointed. It got pretty hot. Ive unplugged it and once it cooled down it ran fine. I put a fan right in front of the hard drive in the case and still shut down every 3 days.
So perhaps Western Digital sold me a fluke of a lemon? Oh, the warrenty expired on the 3 year mark. this p,o,s died exactly 2 months later.
