I bought 160gb sata hard drive which got dead after around use of around 1 year. I gave it into warranty and got a new one after giving carriage charges of 1000. But even after a few months the new one died down. Now it won't let me format or boot from it. Can it be a problem with the psu? Can the hard drive be repaired in any way? I have lost all faith in these spinning hard drives. Although my 8 years old seagate is still running fine without a problem!
However, I have stopped all further purchases of hard drives until ssd becomes mainstream. I have heard that it's both faster and reliable.
