Any HDD can fail. I had a 1.5 WD Black fail after two years of use and I considered them very good drives (which they are). My 2TB WD Black is ok.
I also have a Seagate GoFlex 2 TB for three years now I was reluctant to buy because of some bad reviews of other models at the time, but it was such a good bf deal I couldn't resist. Still works fine, I use it for backups.
Of course my experience hardly constitutes a scientific experiment, just sayin'. You never know.
