    Default Hard Disk T-Shirt

    A hard disk is a must have component when we build the PC. That's where we put all the data. Here's the T-Shirt that express our feeling towards hard disk.
    Iphone case and Clock are also available.

    I had some Light-Scribe disks and managed to make a clock; one could add various logos.

    Not anymore ever since SSDs happened!

    Are you the owner of the hard drive photo? Do you have rights to use it on a T-shirt you sell?

    Hard to believe that we're down to only Seagate, Western Digital and Toshiba as HDD manufacturers.

    Remember IBM Ultrastar, Deskstar (often called "Deathstar" because they didn't last) and Travelstar drives? Merged with Hitachi then sold to WD.

    Remember Maxtor before they got bought by Seagate? Even Samsung had HDDs not too long ago. Also bought out by Seagate.

    How about Fujitsu? Those were decent drives. Acquired by Toshiba.

    Here's how old I am... I remember JTS! Those were HORRIBLE drives. Our shop refused to sell them, but people kept bringing in PCs with dead JTS drives. Made in India. They had a 1GB HDD that sold for $99. Unheard of back in 1999. But the drives never lasted a year.

    Rodime (went bust)
    Quantum (acquired by Maxtor, which was later acquired by Seagate)
    Conner (acquired by Seagate)

    The Conner Peripherals chinook idea was kinda clever

    Oh God.. yes. Quantum. They had that 5/25" bay HDD. That thing was shit.

    Maxtor bought Quantum, then Seagate bought Maxtor.

    Don't even get me started with Conner. Leave Seagate to found another company to make shittier drives, only to end up selling your company to Seagate.

    I just pulled a hard drive that HD Tune reported had a bad sector; I then zeroed the drive and the bad sector is now gone...

    Not sure what to make of this, as I don't think it was re-mapped.

    Sounds to me that you had a logical bad sector, not a physical bad sector. Logical bad sectors go away when you overwrite them with anything.

    ?
    HD Tune did its job correctly. You had a bad sector (a logical one), zeroing the drive fixed it, and so you had no bad sectors anymore.
