My son had two brand new 120GB IBM drives on a server - both packed up in a very short period of time.
IBM told him that they were not intended to be used continuously (not much use on a server!) and it was only after a long and involved period of telephone calls and correspondence that IBM eventually agreed to replace them.
Apparently failures were very common with the larger gigabyte IBM drives.
It brings a company a bad name, just as it did with Fuji - in its case the fault was due to a component supplied by another company that was used in thousands of its hard drives...
Yet I had a 1.7GB Fuji drive for two years (given to me by my son when my 850MB drive eventually proved too small!) that is still going strong for a friend today after I upgraded it.
