Summary: Spent the better part of a day checking and testing this drive to figure out why it wasn't being seen by the BIOS and computer. I know I should have found it sooner, however, I tried multiple combinations of cables just to be sure.
Cons: Dead out of the box, was building a new rig and I preorder parts. When I went to use this drive it was dead, tried other drives and they worked. RMA the drive back to Seagate. They sent me a Re-certified drive (USED), not only that but it was not even the same interface. ST31000528AS SATA 3.0 GB. E-Mails have not been answered, if I wanted a used drive I would have bought a used drive.
Cons: About a month after use I got a random crash. I paid no mind to it and kept going. A few days ago I got another crash....then the next day another crash and my system no longer even detects the drive at all. I managed to get it booted up but after 6 hours it began going so slow that I had to power it down. Upon boot up the drive was no longer detected and could not boot windows. I got it going once more, long enough to back up some essentials and run a seatools test (...
Pros: While it worked, it was good, but less then 6 months operating time is bad.
Cons: I bought this early August for a computer I built from scratch, and the hard drive has an excessive amounts of reallocated sectors, which means that a larger portion then normal of the hard drive has gone unreadable/unfixable. I'm very disappointed, Seagate is usually a good brand for me, I used one of their hard drives for over 5 years, an old 60GB drive from 2000.
Cons: has bad sectors a ton of them. this at 100 days of use! fedora linux recomends i get a new one and throw it away. im going to see if i can fix it! all im going to say is westren digatal next time i go to get a hard drive.
