I'm not trying to make any points.
When I replied to Andy Steb I agreed with him that it was not enough to influence my purchase decisions, nor should it be. (specifically to make me stop buying the Seagate HDD's I meant)
But I have also expressed that it has renewed a long time preference for Hitachi too. I have always favored Hitachi and said many times for many years here some of my best and favorite hard drives were Hitachi but I wish they were cheaper most of the time. It's not because of the backblaze article, but certainly that helped renew and reinforce what I already had about them.
I still don't understand what consequence this is to you. What do you care if I like both Seagate and Hitachi ? Is there some universal truth I need to follow about this ?
I must say I chuckled when not once, not twice, but three times you tried to suggest that the WD if charted out long term might be as reliable as Hitachi. That's hilarious to me because it's like you completely just ignore the possibility of burst deaths at say 15 months or 30 months. In your mind that's impossible in a WD product right ? Clearly shows your favoritism of them. Nothing wrong with that really, I just think if you are transparent about it then it actually gives you more validity. Ironically when I see through and your real motivation and personal bias I give it less validity than if you just voiced a personal opinion they are good and you like them.

I've messed with the settings a bunch of times. I think if you post over a certain amount it disables or something. I'm not sure other than mine does not work.
