The last time I recalled(5 yrs ago), WD was a pretty good company. However, I've recently read that lately, hdds from many manufacturers are dying far more quickly(probably less testing and less quality parts).
So, which companies are most reliable now? I'm looking to get an external hdd though not more than 2TB as I heard they start failing, the more platters they have. I know of Samsung, Toshiba, Seagate and WD.
