Do you realize that HP does not manufacture disk-drives?

Instead, HP "out-source" the manufacture of disk-drives to companies like SEAGATE/MAXTOR and WESTERN DIGITAL and TOSHIBA. 

 

At this time, I cannot think of any other manufacturers of "mechanical" disk-drives.

 

Imagine the cost of having an Engineering Department and a Manufacturing Department to design & create disk-drives.

It's just not economical for HP to be a player in this sector.

 

So, please blame those companies, not HP, for supplying (allegedly) low-quality disk-drives, in bulk, to HP.

 

> I tell my customers don't buy HP.

 

What do you tell them?

 

Neither SEAGATE nor WESTERN DIGITAL manufacture complete computers.

 

TOSHIBA does -- presumably, they use their own disk-drives.

 

I can guess that DELL and LENOVO also purchase disk-drives, in bulk, from those same suppliers.

yes, that's right and they should be more careful. all the HP computers I've have seen with this problem are using TOSHIBA drives. out of the list you gave, SEAGATE is the most reliable. When installing drives in their systems they need to run better testing of these drives. For my personal use, I use Macs and this is why they cost more. Apple has better qulity control than most computer companies.
