Summary: This is my third Seagate Barracuda HD and it replaces my second Seagate Barracuda HD (300GB capacity) which replaced my first one. Each one of these drives was replaced when I upgraded my Windows OS (Windows 98 to XP and the one being reviewed today took me from XP to 7). So, each case, the drive was replaced to accommodate a clean install of new windows OS.
Summary: Seagate hard drive arrived promptly, fit perfectly into our eMachine, and is working extremely well. Totally pleased with the product and the people at Crucial for ensuring that it was made for this machine.
Summary: I really had a difficult time getting my Computer to recognize this drive but after I finally got it it has worked well. Also I didn't get the software on CD like the box said, I downloaded it from the web.
Summary: Having enough space for data is becoming more and more important by the second. One of my two year old photo processing workstations was originally configured with a very small hard drive so I decided to add this 1TB drive and use it as the drive to house the images being processed. That freed up lots of space for my programs to operate more efficiently and improve my workflow.
