I know quite a few people that have drives that are five, six, seven years old.

You are thinking limited number of cycles or limited number of hours???

This drive is two years old now and it has already started making some "click, click, click sounds every so often (hasn't done it in over one week now). Diametricalbenz thinks I'm on borrowed time.
