Plus if its a current drive there is a good chance that it has a 5 year warranty
I have had more trouble with new drives dying than ones that have been running for a year or two. I never put anything important on a new one until it's survived the "infant mortality" period. In general, all drives are teetering on the brink of failure. But in my experience, new ones can be trusted the least.
