Summary: Extremely displeased with this drive, failed in 1 year of use in a server array. Was using on a Windows Home server, very little activity, but failed prematurely. Should have listened to other reviewers of this drive.
Summary: I received a different model than what I ordered, and apparently it was a refurbished product, both units, because they had identifying stickers on them ("Drive 8, Drive 15") that are not typically found on products that come directly from the factory. I was able to use them, but not in the way that I had originally intended, which was to replace one half of a mirrored RAID drive set. Very disappointed.
Summary: Received 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64 MB Cache drive which would have been great if I had a newer hardware but was trying to order/match components already in computer...able to use as a storage drive but COULD NOT load versions of Windows 7 32/64 bit OS without hardware conflicts...
Summary: The drive was DOA. Installed it in two different computers and changed ribbon cables. Disk Manager could not see it nor could I feel or hear it running. Also tried it on a USB drive extension and the drive would not run.
Summary: I was a first time computer builder. -Note. So I found this for DIRT cheap ($35), so it made since to get it. Because at the time I didn't know that cheap meant that the product is bad or the person is dumb. Beside that, I was extraordinarily happy to see my computer boot for the first time. I then spend the next three weeks playing on my computer. When, bam, it crashed. So I thought (as a first time computer builder) I had done something wrong.
Summary: Purchased two seagate Barracuda drives. A 750 gig, and 1TB. Both failed about the same time due to a firmware upgrade that trashed the drive. Drives were still under warranty, except for my data loss, so I got re-furbished / new drives sent to me. So, silly me thinking they would be more reliable, put 13 plus years of pictures to save space while I worked to create a backup and now the drive is no longer accessible through windows...
