nice article Larry.

I had a 46GB IBM drive, lasted three months then broke when i ran a defrag on it ...

Th reseller said they are getting heaps of them returned....
and it was exactly like this

"The constant heating/cooling cycles contaminates the data on the adjacent plate, and this means the head ends up reading / writing the wrong track, then you get the kkktch-click -click-lcik. "

I was had the understanding that the GXP75 was replaced with the GXP60 to take care of this. Not according to that article though.
