Hi, I am little bit confused about choosing the right drive ...
I read online about drive failure rate and seagate drive fail more than WD , But I had like 4 WD drive and 4 of them failed in 5-6years but got 1 replaced as it was in warranty.... (2tb internal and 2x1tb external )
I am not sure about both but I have to make a choice , I already ran out of space XD


Portability is not a issue just one room to another so powered drive is okay for me but I am confused if I should get a powered drive in that case I can only buy 4tb hard drive (Only 1$ difference)
