Bad Drives....ARGH!!!

:##

I guess it was partly my own fault.

Last summer, I bought a retail 250GB Maxtor drive to upgrade a refurbished ReplayTV 5040. Well, a few months later the drive failed. It was the first ReplayTV that I had upgraded to 250GB to experience a drive failure. One key difference was that all the previous ReplayTVs were upgraded using OEM 250GB Maxtors.

So, I quickly rushed out and ordered another one of these, though the company I had ordered from in the past switched from free 2nd Day UPS to free 2nd Day FedEx....and that drive arrived DOA. So, there was an RMA process with that. Eventually, I got another drive and things have been working fine since.

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
