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!
Terrible Experience With Drive and Warranty Department
Clayton Ehman "Superconductor", Amazon
24 April 2011
Summary: My drive went out within warranty and i had to talk to a manager just to get them to agree to replace it cus i got it on here and not directly through them, then they wanna send me a refurbished drive and i say no, i bough t a new one and it broke i want another new one, cus thats what i paid for.. they say yes then no then yes then no it was so rediculous very long story short took them about 4 months for me to receive the replacement they promised me..
Summary: I needed to expand a Linux/Ubuntu installation I have for my small business and this came across as being the right size drive for the right price. Unlike other reviewers, my drive arrived from Amazon well-packed in a properly-sized box, so, no complaints at all about the shipping. No complaints either about the drive. I'm using it in an old PC that has IDE interfaces.
