The last sentence should be an indication to how pointless your post is.
No matter which manufacturer, you'll find thousands and thousands of stories like yours, and thousands of people who never had any problem. That's no contradiction given that there are millions of customers out there.
Your personal experience is not statistically significant. Sorry. You can all stop posting it. Thanks.
I have had many a seagate drive fail. It is coming to the point that I do not know what brand to trust anymore.
When it comes to hard drives, there really isn't a single company who has a perfect track record. They are complicated to build and operate, so they don't normally last long.
I don't see why you would use this over time machine.
