Of course it is :)

I have 17 HDD in active use at present, 11 of which are Samsung. I'd heard
they had the lowest RMA rate in the industry and was bored with replacing
cooked-off Maxtors, WD's, Seagates, Toshiba and IBM/Hitachi.

Samsung was the only brand I'd not had fail prematurely, except I had 1
recent 1TB SATA DOA and then 1 300GB IDE warranty replaced after almost no

I think they're all much the same, except Maxtor, which I won't buy
anymore even if Seagate do own them now, they have definite heat/quality
issues. Oh, and I've never really forgiven IBM/Hitachi for the Deathstar
firmware disaster, to which I lost 4 disks.

Great idea for office stuff, these services, but over DSL a multi-GB
photosession is going to take days to backup, and I have no idea how many
years it would take to restore the accumulated ~900GB archive.
