I bought one of these for my brother's laptop last May. Right now it's in front of me, beeping rapidly instead of spinning up. Manufactured in Feb 2012, so it's failed pretty much dead-on the one-year-old mark. Will be shipped off to the suppliers on Tuesday. Hopefully no issues there, as Seagate's warranty checker reckons it's an OEM drive...
