My second Seagate FreeAgent Desktop 320 just died. This is two dead in less than 18 months. Fortunately I have dual external backup so I didn't lose any data. Funny, my little 40gig external Maxtor is still humming along after 6+ years of continous duty. Too bad Seagate swallowed up Maxtor!
Just picked up a Buffalo 250gig ministation for $60.00 at Frys. See how this one goes.
