Several years ago we bought an expensive external hard drive with 4 Seagate 1TB drives configured as RAID-5. Over the course of our first year of ownership, each of the hard drives failed. Fortunately with the RAID-5 configuration we never lost any data. I did not replace the drives with Seagate, especially after the manufacturer of the external drive was charging 3X the price of the same drive from newegg. I replaced them with used Western Digital drives salvaged from another project. After replacing all of the original Seagate drives with WD units, the external drive worked like a champ for quite a while. We bought another external drive, except this one has 4 6TB drives, again in RAID-5. Shortly after it arrived, and I copied the data to it from the original drive, the RAID controller in the original unit crapped out. I still have the WD 1TB component drives for use as extra storage in our development machines when we need it.

I'm not a fan of Seagate if I can avoid them. I've never had a Western Digital drive fail.
