Well I've been reading up on newegg, in the reviews for both types of HD. And I'm at a loss.
IMO more than half the folks on Newegg reviews shouldn't legally be allowed to own a computer. Having said that, people do get bad drives, The problem is as with any service, folks are more likely to leave a review for a bad or sub-par experience as opposed to a good experience.
Do a search on apartments, if you ever lived in one. It's a great example if you have. (if you haven't, look at a high commodity service that you have used with a good experience and read the reviews). I use this example because apartment ratings or whatever the website is called is a perfect example of people rarely rating good things.
I lived in my last apartment for 6 years. It wasn't amazing but it was in good condition with extremely friendly staff and the price was alot lower than comparable apartments in the area (if it matters in my case I had an 1100sq' apt for under $600 a month, 800sq' apts in my area were going for $1kish a month). The majority of ratings on the sites about the apartment complex I lived in talk about the staff being ****** or extremely rude or the facility smelling horrible etc... A few of the reviews I was able to tell who the people were, some even lived in my builiding. Those folks were ones which were evicted or chastised for infractions. 0 people other than myself left a good review for the staff or the facilities in the timeframe I lived there.
What I'm getting at is it's human nature to rant to the world (especially if the problem is of our own cause), very rarely do we ensure we tell the world about a good experience. We might rave to family or friends, but we won't take the time to tell people about a good experience, great ones yes! Good, normal, average? Nope.
I suppose another example would be movies, but tastes vary greatly so it's harder to make an example.
