And here was me thinking that WD could not do anything to make less reliable drives.

They could have bought Maxtor from seagate

This means Hitachi's external hard drives are now going to come bundled with WDs SmartWare junk.

On the bright side at least other companies are making SSD's ie OCZ, Corsair etc so once prices come down , won't have to worry about WD, Seagate, etc unless they have SSD's in the works to compete with OCZ, Corsair / Samsung etc

True, Maxtors were just delayed data wipeing devices, with a mean time between total, complete and spectacular failure that could be more easily communicated in days than months or years.

I hope Hitachi's firmware engineers can show WD how to make a HDD that actually works properly in a RAID array.
By the way, Samsung will be releasing 4TB HDDs sometime this year. I wonder how long is will take WD to release theirs?
