We sold several thousands of those, and - hostly - they were not actually worse than other brands. I had a couple of them running fine for more than a decade in our computers - until the computers were shut down. None failed on us and the RMA rate was not higher than other drives.
The mentioned Seagate Barracuda (first series) and the 1.5TB Seagate ST1500DM003 (AFAIR) were an absolute RMA horror, compared to the Deathstars.

Seagate and Western Digital have both made a lot of good drives and a few turds. I assume that's the case for most brands, experience with one model doesn't necessarily tell you anything about their other models.
