What's up with hard drives these days?

A little bit more than a year ago, my hard drive died. It was a rather unpleasant experience, I lost a lot of important data. I bought a new drive, set up the computer again, and went on with life. Five days ago, this drive died as well. I had current backups so it wasn't a disaster, but I can't help but wonder about the quality of drives manufactured by IBM and Hitachi.

I decided to dump IBM/Hitachi -- the new drive is the MK8032GAX from Toshiba. My only hope is that it lasts longer than the old one.
