Every WD HDD I have ever owned has failed in a catastrophically, glorious kind of way. I have had them catch fire, crash the head into the disk (three times), fail for no reason, not accept S.M.A.R.T., crash because of S.M.A.R.T., ect…. the list goes on and on! I will admit, I did purchased a cheap 1 Tera external for my Airport about a year ago and have had no problems, but when I hear their name, I can’t help but throw up in my mouth a little bit.
