Seagate hard drive.

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: I bought this a few months back for my new build and frankly I'm not sure what to think. It works, sort of. It seems to have slow reading speeds to some extent. I BOUGHT THIS ITEM USED. I do not know if the product I recieved was previously damaged and almost fully restored, but with up to date mobo, cpu, and gpu I am very skeptical that anything outside of this hdd is causing me to have 1 - 2.5 min boot times...
Summary: There's not much to say, it was a very easy hardware install (slide it in, tighten the screws, hook up the power and sata cables). The I didn't use the provided DVD since I had a previous version of the Seagate software from a previous drive install. It was a quick setup. I ran a full set of diagnostics - no problem. It's been purring ever since. This was an addition to two other Seagate drives in the system that have 5 and 11 years of trouble free operation.
Summary: I had to run all over town to find a tenth of a cent jumper that should have been packed with the drive. The jumper was needed to change the transmission rate so that the drive could be compatible with my older motherboard.
Summary: used daily for personal business and pleasure. Runs pretty quietly and is cooler than expected. Drive is much slower than expected. Previous drive was a 500 GB 5400RPM WD. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit rated the WD drive at 5.7 in the performance section. The seagate drive which is 7200RPM with 32 MB cache rates at 5.9 in windows performance chart. A great dissapointment as reviews read the drive to be one of the fastest of all drives.
