  • Summary: Hard drive was great when I first got it, had a fast transfer rate and the written detail about the item was exactly what I got. But after 6 months of use, it already has the S.M.A.R.T. error trip and I have to replace the hard drive.

Another dead drive

Rachael Walker, Amazon
7 January 2011
  • Summary: I don't know for sure if I can blame the death after four hours of my new drive on the crappy Amazon packaging, but... well, it was crappy Amazon packaging, in the clamshell with only one layer of bubble wrap around it.

  • Excerpt: Operates. Wow, the searching for on this drive is so loud. I thought there was a cable that was rubbing against a moving fan in my case. You have to mount this with rubber or your case will turn into a loud speaker for the seeking noise.

  • Excerpt: Worked great appropriate from the get-go. No initial difficulties. Following just more than a month, the thing started buzzing loud. Anywhere you go in my residence, you can hear it clear as a bell. I've read evaluations already that this model does do that from time to time.

Kerry, pricebat.ca
