I think you should move this thread to the 'Bash 1sf (troll)' forum!

Does that mean that Hitachi are going to create a drive that won't fail after 13 months?! First time for everything I guess.

Code:
root@death:/home/dave# smartctl -a /dev/hda|grep Model
Device Model:     IC35L120AVV207-0
root@death:/home/dave# smartctl -a /dev/hda|grep Power_On
  9 Power_On_Hours          0x0012   098   098   000    Old_age   Always       -       19132


That's over double your 13 months, and that's power-on time Razz.

(That's a 120GB Deskstar 180GXP.)
