Yep, but as far as I know, they are Seagate in name only, and it's still Maxtor parts inside Maxtor HD's... so I will stay with Seagate branded HD's.

WD Error

Post by doghucat » Wed Jan 31, 2007 1:06 pm

I am getting smart error that reads Raw read error rate imminent drive failure so I got everything important backed up waiting to see when it dies. Nice when they let you know ahead of time been off warranty since 2004.
