    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.

    Shouldn't always believe what you read on the internet......i guess......

    HA!!!!

    *Still tries to prove a point with no info because it is irrelevant to him....*

    I'm sure they had their HDD failure data right next to them figures in comparison?

    I have had so many more drives in my life fail that were hdd's than ssd's and I've pretty much caught up with my purchases of SSD's compared to that of the amount of HDD's I've bought over the years. One SSD Ihave ever owned failed in a raid setup that should have never been at the time because it was never even supported properly at the time...

    Dude 1.5-3 MILLION HOURS MTBF

    Please find me a HDD that can offer that.....

    Right, why would i believe the spreadsheet from a data center that lists all drives with info regarding brand/capacity/install/failure date.
    Facts dont change, just because "you" dont know them/believe it.
    Especially when said info was also referenced by hilbert on guru3d.

    nor will i consider any info about a products quality/reliability, as relevant, when its coming from a single user owning "a few drives", vs the millions made/sold globally.

    Last example :
    my friend bought a backup drive to image the server hdd to it once a week.
    Drive was new, smart info showing no problems.
    Hdd died after 4 weeks and 5 images (~50gb each), so not anywhere close to 1000h before it failed...
    Now looking at the fact that this was a seagate drive, and using "your" thinking (non of your ssds died yet, so ALL ssds will work equally long), all seagate drives will fail within month, right?
