Western Digital always lets me down. I only trust Hitachi. In fact when I upgraded to a 7200rpm drive for the PS4 I got a Hitachi. WD and Seagate always seem to fail on me at one point or another.


...that Hitachi (HGST) is owned by Western Digital, right? Since 2011.

WD/HGST is hands-down the most reliable drive brand for me these days. I have dozens of drives that I maintain, and the WDs have been bullet-proof.

Edit: added qualifier

This is true, but between drives branded Western Digital and Drives branded Hitachi / HGST, I've noticed a huge difference.

I'm not imagining it either:

WD drives are literally the worst.
