In case you hadn't noticed Samsung just beat Apple on reliability... first time in many years Apple wasn't #1.

I have to regretfully agree... had 2 Apple HDs die recently on 3-4 yr old Macs... Back 10 years ago you could have one for 5-6 years and it was STILL running- no crash. One was my 4 yr old MacBook... cost to fix $250 (maybe $75 if I do it myself) . . .the second was my wife's 3+ yr old iMac... that did cost $250 ! Didn't even want to try cracking that nut shell. Really frustrating ! I know Apple has done far better in the Past !! frown
