  Seriously!  And those are verified owners!
I hate piling on every time there is a post about Seagate, but I personally just had ANOTHER drive (3TB) fail.  About 3 years old, not used a ton. Thankfully I caught it and had a backup for most of it.
I used to be such a huge Seagate fan, most of my large cap drives (12-14?) were theirs.  They have almost all failed--some catastrophically, with no warning.
I've gotten burned so many times now (and my IT friends, as well), I have no idea what it would take to get me to use their drives again.  Certainly I have 3 or 4 WD drives fail but it was generally WAY past their stated MTBF and all but one failed very gracefully, with lots of warning.

There's a lot of anecdotal data based on owners with <5 drives.    Check out this most awesome report with statistics on over a billion drive hours.

There are some good ones, and some horrible ones.   HGST/Hitachi generally do best.
