Yesterday my replacement 1 TB drive arrived. I was hoping to try to recover all the data from my old drive. It only had all my pictures, music, & tv shows... :(

Due to the nature of the failure I believe it to be a problem with the PCB on the bottom of the hard drive. So I tried swapping them. No good. Swap back, same as I'm used to. I tried the new drive with the old PCB, same thing as the old drive with the new PCB. Then I look. The new one is Revision B. Doh!

So since they are different I went ahead and ordered 2 more of them. I was planning on ordering them this month anyway to build a RAID 5 array to avoid this happening again. Hopefully one of them will have the same PCB revision!
