It's good to see someone else agree with me about Seagate drives. With one exception, every other brand I had, had still been SMART = 100% when I threw it away for being too small (I still have a working 80GB HDD).
So that is ONE HDD failure since Win95 ruled (Fujitsu 3TB @ 8 years old)
As for Crucial, not had any experience with them, but I HAVE had two other SSD brands dies on me; both during normal low load instances, checking email, reading web etc; both 100% total loss.
One was 2 years old and one was 2 weeks old.
I dont trust any valuable data to them now; OS and Program files go on SSD, all data and documents go on spinning rust.
