    So far my 2TB Toshiba is running fine as the media drive. The 1TB Samsung is doing great too.

    The replacement 1TB Seagate was in fact a reconditioned, so I think I'll use it as an external archive/backup. Still not trusting Seagate enough to make it any kind of full time drive.

    At least I'll have my ripp...er...um backed-up DVD's and blu-rays saved in multiple locations.

    Like a building the larger that the structure gets means there will be more structural failure unless the structure has rigid support.

    Maybe the 1TB + HDD need to be built like a skyscraper with each level supporting one above it with secondary and tertiary support to ensure the HDD doesn't go down.

    I would suggest a modular system where the 1 TB + HDD would have slots that support HDD could be plugged into to help assist with the functions of the main HDD. That way the weight of the HDD is not placed on the single 1 TB + HDD but is distributed to the other smaller support HDD.
