Off topic, but I wanted to mention we saw this behavior this year on an acer pc built in 2011.

The hdd died just after warranty. The first replacement lasted 3 months. When it died we tried and killed two more replacements before recycling the pc. In each case they would last through the os install but fail to boot and never worked again after that.

So it can still happen with a modern pc.

This was around 1998, I wouldn't expect dodgy hardware like that anymore. 
Especially not from products used by bigger companies.
