Summary: These drives have a very high failure rate. I built a server for work using 45 of these in a single 4U server with plenty of cooling and i have already had 6 of them fail in the last year. If i didnt already have 45 of these, i would go with a different model drive!
Summary: I had a computer crash and needed a way to put another one together inexpensively, this HD was an easy way to upgrade an older computer. It arrived quickly, was clean and pakaged well. So far, it's performing flawlessly.
Summary: I was just browsing Amazon for a new 3.5" hard drive so I could expand my media space in my desktop. I found this Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 250GB hard drive for only $40. I have trouble using lots and lots of hard drive space so 250GB was a medium and hit the sweet spot.
