might wanna read my post again. i said i dont care to remember (where the info is from) once i know its correct/relevant in numbers. its not from a guy running 5 HDDs in his home server, but from a data center, so what difference does it make to know what/who company actually operates them, as someone that runs +10 000 drives usually knows what their doing. i never had a asus motherboard go bad on me since i build my rigs (2001), does that now mean no asus board has ever failed, right. "personal experience" and the low amount of drives "one person" will ever have, vs a data center with thousands hdd's/ssd's? i know what numbers will statistically be more relevant, to show what drives fail, and which dont.
