I guess I don't beat up my drives too badly. I've only had 1 or 2 hard drives fail on me in 30 years.
I tend to run multiple drives in RAID arrays and I do tend to beat mine up some what. That said, most of my drives get replaced before they fail. I normally replace them for performance reasons more than capacity or due to failure. I've only had a half dozen die on me. This is out of probably 50+ drives I've owned. I probably have 20 or 30 in my office in varying sizes ranging from 73GB Raptors to 2TB Western Digital Enterprise drives. I don't have any larger than that.
