I haven't had a bitcoin one in a while, they supposedly banned them? I report every one I think is a scam, now get very few, although I keep getting Amazon adverts every day, don't mind that.

What may be more likely is something like a dodgy SATA cable or dodgy power supply, given the issues you are seeing. I know for a fact one of my SATA cables is dodgy as no drive will work when plugged in using it but works fine with any other cable. For the sake of your drive and your mental health maybe spend a few quid on a new cable?

I must have just been unlucky, either way I've replaced it with a 1TB seagate hybrid HDD, with 8GB solid state memory, its noticeably slower but I don't use my PC for much that needs performance these days.

I've only ever used brands/models I know to have reliable controller tech, I think pretty much only Crucial and Intel. None have ever given me any issues.

You don't rate the Samsung controllers?

I worded that badly, I meant pretty much Crucial and Intel are the only ones I've used. I think I may have put a Samsung SSD in my old laptop that I've since sold, so couldn't comment other than they are supposed to be reliable too.

I've had a few samsung with no problems - mostly because they were the fastest around each time I was buying

More jokes to lighten up the mood:

A grasshopper walks into a bar and the bartender says, "Hey, we have a drink named after you!"

The grasshopper looks surprised and asks, "You have a drink named Steve?"
