With my computer store business I've seen so many dead Seagate drives of various models and sizes that I simply REFUSE anyone that asks for one and they will get a far superior Western Digital drive instead. Not saying that WD is failproof but for every dead WD drive I get there are at LEAST 25 dead seagates.


Even though these are SSD models I will still not entertain any thought whatsoever so getting one.


The ONLY SSD's that I sell are Samsungs and Western Digitals. Absolutely nothing else.

And here I am having had both 2 seagates 2TB HDDs and 2 WD 2TB HDDs in my current gaming rig alongside 2 SSDs....all 4 HDDs have been going strong for 6 years and still have given me zero problems.

I've had failures before from both brands but that was years ago, so they both seem to have gotten a lot better after 2010 or so lol. Least in my opinion!

I don't have a preference to either nor bad experiences with one over the other.

I've always been a WD fan. I have some black drives in my server, and they are still going strong after over 9 years of 24/7 use...
