RE: HDD manufacturer's market share
Indeed. I wonder if WD's venture into other devices (MyDVR Expander, WD TV, etc) has helped to improve their share. That stuff is probably just a drop in the bucket though.

Seems the hard drive industry, like many others, goes through cycles of leadership.

Drobo provides fault-tolerance, it's NOT a substitute for regular backups.

RE: HDD manufacturer's market share
ive been working with various disks over many years, seagate has always been my personal preferred choice until the incident with the firmware, ok they have corrected the issue itself finally, but their initial response was to deny it was their fault. now i run most samsung for my own stuff.

RE: HDD manufacturer's market share
i remember the old ide wd drives (caviar or something which was a bit flaky the 850meg ones with jumper settings, but that was about 15 years ago) Smile funny thing is that ironically they still seem to be recognised and work in the bios or usb enclosures more than my newer 6-8gib fujistus Smile
(time to dump whats there onto the drobo - i think magnetism only lasts so long unused Smile

(btw i have XP home SP2, a Drobo v1 with 2x 1TB/2x 1.5TB WD greens, & a bkp Drobo v2 with the same + a DroboShare: unused)
& a DroboS v2 with 3xWD15EADS &2x1TB in DDR mode on win7, & a drobo5D (all usb)
  • btw i did a sustained (write) operation for about 6 hours, and got 13.2MB / sec ...objection? "sustained" :)
    (16.7MB/s on a v2 & 47-96MB/s drobo-s)
