I remember back when you could choose between, Seagate, WD, IBM, Hitachi, Samsung, Quantum, Conner, Micropolis, JTS (ugh)
JTS went under (thank heavens)
Micropolis went under (such a shame)
Conner got bought by Seagate.
Quantum Storage got bought by Maxtor
Maxtor got bought by Seagate.
Samsung Storage got bought by Seagate
IBM Storage got bought by Hitachi
Hitachi Storage got bought by WD
So everybody either went under or got bought by Seagate or WD. I know at some point Toshiba got into the game, but I honestly haven't ever encountered one of their drives in the wild.
I guess it's like shampoo, 50 brands, but no matter what you buy, it's coming from Unilever, Helene Curtis, or P&G. Actually scratch that... it's like buying a car... doesn't matter if its a Chevy, Olds, Cadillac, or Pontiac, you're still buying a GM. Car analogy FTW!
