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.
