Man, these little whinny pricks should shut their mouth before they go suing Big Blue. I'm sure they didn't tell the greedy attorney bastards why the HDs failed so fast and often. Hey, I just heard a freaking echo, and it sounded like "OVERCLOCKING." Jesus Christ, what do you expect from the HD when you OC the shit out of it? That it'll stay stable year around and for life even though it's working under stress and above spec frequency? Hell no. Damn, if IBM knew the reason behid half of the RMA HD are cause by OC, they'll probably just dump my HD in the trash.
Wouldn't it be a trip if IBM counter sues and bring the poor ass pricks from proverty to homelessness. This god damn class sue reminds me of the people against philip morris and company case a few years back. I admit it, I support corporations. Hate me if you want to, but bring it in the Viper Room. Later
BTW, should've put this in the Viper Room, but it's closed for maintenance today, so I gotta lay the smack down here.

Kewl, I have that HD. It's been stable though. I've had it for a while too.

I had a failed 75gxp and must say that IBM has a great warranty program. If you do get a bunky hd, you enter the serial number and the error code on their site then they give you an RMA.
Also, when I got my hd back from warranty (3 weeks), they sent me a 60GXP instead of a 75GXP. So I can't complain :D.

I have to agree with 026TB4U, I have had an RMA and they were awsome (100 times better than Acer). Most of these drives were just alittle "abused" and they still take them back. It seems like people want to have there cake and eat it to.
if you are like me and stupid enough to see how fast before it breaks, then you shouldn't whine when it falls in peices. (unfortunatly I have been doing to much breaking as of lately:D )

0260 and Cats, you guys know how long it takes for the RMA drive to come back? Filed and mailed one out last week. I'm sure they got it already as they are in Union City, just down the bay from SF. Can't wait. :D (rubs hands)
Edit: NM, just caught it. 3 Weeks... So I'll get it next week.:D

AS, I'm in Florida so it might be a little faster for you. What drive did you send to them?

30GB 75GXP. Dec 2000.
Causing equite a few problems when doing RAID 0. Didn't know it's busted until I tried to fdisk and format the damn thing. Freezes right up.

The reason I asked is because you are more than likely going to get a 30gb 60gxp. That is great except a 30gb 60gxp is an oem drive and not available for sale. So if you want to match the drive (raid), you are going to find it difficult finding another 30gb 60gxp. I know because I have tried. Just wanted to give you a heads up on that :D.
10-24-2001, 03:30 PM
Is that so? Mmmm... I got an idea. I'll break my current 75GXP (functions), and RMA it, that way I'll get 2 60GXP.:D
No, seriously now. Don't think I'll be doing RAID 0 anymore. Sold my KT7-R last week to one of my buddies. Whatever HD IBM sends back to me will be used for backup purposes.
