I wonder when my 200 GB WD is going to die....

I've had it about 6 months, and I'm using it as my XFS /video
partition for my recordings. I haven't had any problems (yet).

My next one will be a Seagate.

No such luck.  After about three months of use, performance suddenly degrades, and the journals begin to corrupt.  A few days later, I/O errors crop up, and the drive is pretty much useless.
