Why oh why?

IBM makes the best hard drives! I have ONLY bought IBM drives because they are rock solid and oh so reliable. I have gladly paid the extra money for them. What is more important than data storage? LOL, I had a friend who accidentally dropped one from about 6 feet off the ground and it landed on its side. He hooked it up and tried to run it. It ran but with a nasty squeeling sound emitted from it. LOL, he took the drive and banged it on the ground on the opposite side that he dropped it on, plugged it back in and it was like it was new again. That happened almost 2 years ago it still runs in his server like a champ. Looks like I'll be buying Hitachi from now on. IBM, please don't make this mistake!!!
