When vendors and industry executives go to a show like CES, none of them seem to be satisfied to talk about what they are doing now. Almost always, they want to talk about the future and something more exciting and for this year, it’s all about 4K. All week we’ve seen companies talking about the role HEVC plays with 4K, improved compression, higher-quality video and hardware devices that will be able to decode and playback 4K content. While it all sounds exciting, the reality is, no one is discussing the business models around 4K streaming and the fact that for most, the economics of delivering 4K content don’t work.

Of the vendors evaluated, Hitachi (now a subsidiary of Western Digital) had the highest survival rate, with 96.9 percent of purchased drives surviving after 36 months. After an initial batch of early failures in the first three months of life, Western Digital comes in second at 94.8 percent. Seagate trails in third, at 73.5 percent still alive after three years. BackBlaze notes that it has not included Western Digital 3TB Green drives, and Seagate 2TBLow Power drives due to lack of suitability in the BackBlaze environment. The company notes that the drives "start accumulating errors as soon as they are put into production." Topping the failure rate is the Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 1.5TB capacity, at a 25.4 percent annual failure rate.
