then don't store it anywhere. over the course of time & averages, all the manufactures are about the same when it comes to reliability. yep, they all have bad batches, bad firmwares, and bad luck, but unless their is a KNOWN reason a particular model is bad, then you don't have a reason to avoid.
I have Samsung, Western Digital, and Seagate in my PC (14-ish drives or so), and guess what, all brands have failed over the years.

I am in charge of maintaining and repairing over 2000 computers, in the last 20 years of doing this, I completely agree with you. There is no consistently "bad" brand. In fact, Seagate has been one of the most reliable lately.

In fact, Seagate has been one of the most reliable lately. I too have been doing similar work for the last 25 years... I find it quite humorous when people say "oh, stay away from brand XYZ, it's bad!" solely based on 1-2 bad experiences that one individual had. The fact is that ALL hard drives are mechanical, and by DESIGN are inherently flawed and are DESIGNED to fail someday. So...
1. They WILL fail... only a matter of WHEN, not IF 2. The trick is to stick with ones that have a better track record over THOUSANDS of actual drives... not individual experiences of you and I and a dozen guys who cry foul in a forum...
