I suspect this is a misprint

I like shiny tech toys as much as the next geek, but there may be a problem with the 1TB drives described here:

Seagate’s Barracuda 7200.11 and Barracuda ES.2 feature 7,200-rpm spin speeds, up to 32MB cache, average seek times of 8.5 milliseconds, and a 1.2-hour mean time before failure (MBTF) rating, according to Seagate officials.

A 1.2 hour MTBF? Really?

Remind me not to buy one, then.
