The opinions seem to diverge wildly on this issue.
In the last few years I've used one Seagate 40G, 5 Seagate Barracuda
120G, 2 Seagate Barracuda 160G SATA, one WD 80G, one Hitachi
Travelstar 40G, one Fujitsu-Siemens 80G laptop drive, and a bunch of
ancient Quantum Fireball SCSI drives. The WD dropped dead a week
after the warranty expired. The Hitachi gradually decayed, and is no
longer readable at all. One Seagate 120G was DOA, replaced under
warranty. One Quantum Fireball has some bad sectors. The rest are
still working flawlessly. All have had the power on more than off.
