Drive:    Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS
Date Purchased:    Third quarter 2009  
Current Status:    Failed before 3 months
Comment:    The drive was ok at first but started after a while with clicking sounds. It was pretty much as if the head would hit its limits on both sides several times in the row. After that the drive would operate normally until this sounds appears again. It was very arbitrary that this happened - sometimes very often for many short cycles, sometimes it almost did not stop any more, and other times I could not observe it at all.
