Summary: Same drive as the OEM Barracuda ST1000DM003, which of course costs less. I'm out of the SSD market for a while, until some favorable reviews start showing up. Weird how they are so popular, but failure rate is out of control.
Pros: Thinner than the older drives, light weight. Single platter for 1 TB. Two year warranty. Has a good package to store the drive it replaces.
Cons: SATA cable is non-locking. Tough to get Windows 7 installed, had to try 5 times to get the disk recognized. Said the NTFS is the wrong version, then suddenly it worked.
Summary: I have dozens of these 1TB hard drives installed in various external enclosures, RAID5 arrays, and NAS units. They do the job and most of them seem to last about 3 years of 24x7 operation before they fail. I can live with that considering the price.
Summary: This item works well. It is a good replacement drive. Seagate makes it easy to return drives if they fail during the warranty, very simple exchange, they provide the packing ... you pay $10 for the shipping the new drive arrives ... that is it. Takes a few minutes to set up by phone.
Summary: First time install of Windows 7 it took 3 tries for it to do it properly, not 100% sure it was the hard drive but after some research it seems to be the most likely suspect. Once everything installed properly it's been working great and haven't really had any issues since
Pros: It has a good amount of storage. Its quiet as well.
Cons: It took 3 tries to install Windows 7 home edition
