Maybe not so wild given they are Seagates, but here is a selection of new Seagate drives in the week for recovery. Two are from a RAID 5.

Now that's not fair, they did make one drive in 2008 that lasted about 6 months.....

Just yesterday I received 5 drives for assessment/recovery. Three of the four Seagates are shown below. I think I'll open all Seagates in the garage from now on, so I don't have to constantly clean the data dust out of my clean chamber.

Those ST-10 were from the times where Seagate were still producing good reliable drives ...
