  • Summary: Easy to install, worked perfectly right out of the box. This drive is well made, I've run it for several months without a hitch. I would purchase from this vendor again.

Works fine, and you can get to 1 big partition.

  • Summary: This installs just fine. You may need an extra SATA cable. In windows 7, you CAN get it to show a single 2.72 TB free partition in windows 7. It just cannot be your primary boot drive, It must be a secondary data drive. Search youtube for a demo of the method.

Very good

  • Summary: Amazingly cheap for 3tb of space, and pretty darn fast considering it is 5400rpm. Be sure that your OS and hardware support 3tb hard drives. When I first installed this drive it only showed up as 760gb, but after a little research saw the fix was to update my BIOS.
