I have had good luck with hitachi. Other than some that were bad out of
the box, I don't recall any (of hundreds) failing. The bad ones were
replaced with refurbs, and no problem ever with the refurbs. WD, and
seagate, have failed. I think it was some seagate I bought in 2000 that
i figured were programmed to brick in 10 years. They all died exactly
10 yrs after mfgr. date.

Also, I too favor WD over the competition.
My solution was a NAS with a pair of red 4TB WD HDs. The cost for the WD
MyCloud Mirror was no more than the cost of the 2 HDs in it. It also runs my
HDHomerun DVR software in its spare time.
