Why did Samsung sell their HDD division to Seagate? Their drives were reliable, fast, and very popular. Now I don't know anymore.

I guess I'll have to get a Seagate and cross my fingers. WD asks too much for their black series.

Get Toshiba. Toshiba got the good part of Hitachi. WD got the shit part.

I was looking at Toshiba. I might give them a shot since my confidence in Seagate has always been low.

Because selling HDDs is a high volume low profit business

Their drives are still good.
When Samsung sold their HDD division, Seagate did nothing to assimilate their new purchase with the rest of their fabs.
They still sell Samsung "Spinpoint Momentus" drives manufactured in the original Samsung factories, and they're marketed with the samsung name.

Seagate's stuff is fine if you stick to their higher capacity drives. Stay away from anything 1TB-3TB. Their 4TB drives are about as reliable as Western Digital drives.

That's a lot of space, I don't even think I need that much since I don't hold on to too much data at any given time. Even with HD movies, music, and games.
A 1-2 TB drive would be fine just to hold on to that stuff while my old Samsung handles the installed games and programs I don't want on my SSD.

Because being the good guy and producing quality hardware doesn't fucking pay off. Hence Seagate buys their competitors and becomes more and more powerful whilst being more and more unreliable.

you can get a single 8TB for 199$

>he fell for the 8TB meme
