When hard drive manufacturers change things up, it takes time for labs to get familiar with them. As a result, success rates are always a little lower for the first few cases.Bankole Oladoja wrote:For me I feel Seagate should stop the production of these drives. Users are really suffering. The failure rate is too high. Head Replacement with UltraSlim is so complex and difficult. Even when you have exact match for donor, the chances are like 1:10.
How often do you guys receive UltraSlim requiring Head Replacement ? And what are your success rate ?

What head tool and/or method are you using?Bankole Oladoja wrote:Great Job.. Wouldn't mind a little guide on doing head swap on this Rosewood.
You think the tool might be the problem? I have used the HDD Surgery tools on 1TB & 2TB Rosewood's numerous times. I have one 2TB here that we used for practice and making a training video, I bet the heads have been in and out 7-8 times and it still works fine. I don't really feel like the heads are more fragile than any WD 7mm drive.Bankole Oladoja wrote:I have been using HDDSurgery tools for Rosewood, but I feel it's quite heavy considering fragility of Rosewood heads. Just got my ApexTool Version delivered but havent tried it yet...
