My Hitcachi Disks drives too young to know if they outlast Seagate drives

Summary: The issue that made me switch from Seagate to Hitachi was longevity. Of the many Seagate drives I have, too many (40%) have failed too early in their lives. I am hoping the Hitachi reputation for longevity will be merited.
Summary: Have repaired and built new computers for years and the Hitachi 1 terabyte models have in many cases run 24/7 without failure. Out of about fifteen drives only one was DOA and the shipping box showed the rough treatment that made it dead.
