Completely depends on the drive you're picking.

 

Barracudas are fucking terrible, don't buy them. My 4TB was DOA, my two 1TB died in just a few months, and I know several people who have also had many problems with Seagate drives. I've heard their high(er)-end drives are better, but I have no experience with them. Meanwhile, my cheap little WD Blue has been happily chugging along for years now with no problems whatsoever.

 

Also, before I get flamed by Seagate fanboys, this is just my experience and what I've heard from others.

Quote me to see my reply!

define "better"?

 

 

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

if one brand would be factually better than the other in every way, there would be no reason for the other brand to exist.

The oldest one I have is a WD Blue from 2011. Literally almost 8 years on the clock according to CrystalDiskInfo lol.

CrystalDiskInfo is reporting 68,650 hours, which amounts to 7.8ish years.
