    Sworn off WD myself. Why? They started building the SATA-to USB bridge into the hard drive itself, so if it fails, you're screwed. Sometimes those bridges do fail, not the actual hard drive. And with a proper one, you can just rip the drive out and hook it straight to SATA. But they really want people to use their $3000 data extraction service.
