I don't know what you've been smoking but for me, IBMs not on the top of my list. I bought many IBM including 8 new 180GXPs 180GB and hope they'll last longer than those 75GXP, 60GXPs JUNK!
Out of 20 60GB 60GXP, 12 Dead in less than a year. Either you paid to Pro IBM or you don't even know what you're talking about. But, I only Trust my very ownself. Now I've got to use 3 Brands name since I can't and won't trust ANY one brand name. I'm now buying mostly WDCs some Maxtor and some IBMs. IBM Being the last choice of the 3.
I only RMAed 3 WD JBs & BBs out of 44 in 2 years, 4 Maxtors D740X Out of 20 in 2 years just because of the noise not DEAD like IBM. Guess what I recieved back ? All Brand New Drives from both WDC and Maxtor! Now you tell who's going to get my business.
By the way, I've got a few "Serviceable Used Parts" AKA "Refurbished" 60GB 60GXP that I received back from IBMs forsale at a very good price if anyone want to buy them (JUNK!) I do not want to Ebay these Junk to other users who don't know the truth about IBMs.
