Yep, I actually had a WD 1TB fail. It was on my satellite dish receiver. When I had Dish Network, you could use an external HD to expand your DVR... sure enough the HD failed (under warranty) they replaced it, but I lost all my stuff.

The replacement drive has worked fine, but I do not fully trust them, back important stuff stuff up in different places. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
I'm so much cooler online.
