Summary: 1 of 2 seagate drives to make it less than a year. Before you vote no, I have a 230gb IDE seagate drive that is going on over a year and am happy that I have it. What happened when they made the jump to newer SATA standard?
Pros: Replaced a dead 160gb hitachi drive in an old acer laptop
Cons: Started Dying after 100 days of use. SMART readout says replace immediately. Ignored SMART and put it in an old laptop. Had to format it 4 times before giving up.
Summary: I found out after I received it that I didn't need it. However, I did run a "Scan Disk" to check for bad sectors since it was a used HD, I found no bad sectors. I will not be returning the HD because who doesn't need a spare HD?
