Samsung drives performed really well while being cheap and quiet. I'm going to miss them. I wouldn't buy a seagate again as their drives have had a noisy crunchy loading sound for the last 5+ years. WD's used to have a high pitch whine and Maxtors died like nobody's business so I always stuck with Seagate... now that they suck I was WD or Samsung exclusive.

Maybe they are moving to SSD and want to give up HDD's. Which might be a good thing . SSD's are obviously the future...

I bought a 1.5TB Samsung a little over a year ago and it performs better than expected plus runs cooler than my other drives.

I guess that leaves Seagate and WD and Toshiba, though Toshiba doesn't count in my book.

I didn't read the OP, so I didn't see the article.

I read my news elsewhere. Seagate wasn't mentioned in your thread title, so I assumed there was no article about it. My mistake.
