Hitachi, whose drives we do like, was just eaten by WD, whose drives we run away from.
As long as the product lines that get ditched are the WD’s in favor of the Hitachi’s, I am ok with this. 2TB drives that decide to randomly power down in a RAID, without informing anyone? And a company that seems to want us all to believe that there are no firmware updates? Ugh.
Lets hope that the Hitachi quality bleeds into WD, and not the other way around.
