Summary: Got this as a replacement for an identical drive that I had for three years that failed with S.M.A.R.T. errors. Since I had a NAS configured in RAID1 I just popped out the faulty drive, popped in the new, resynched, and voila. It's a simple no-nonsense HD, just a bit miffed that the price went from 59 to 67 and back to 59 within days.
Pros: Simple no-nonsense drive, fair warranty, adequate speed and cache for the price.
Cons: Getting the finer details (i.e. build location, more technical build data details etc.) can be a bit complicated with Seagate.
Summary: I take this hdd because all baracuda new serie drive have some clicky noise. This serie are before the new serie, run great no click, great performance. The only thing anoying its the thickness of the drive.
Summary: I used to use WD all the time (well the majority), and after I had a flurry of WD failures, I decided to give Seagate a run. Been very happy with the performance, heat dissipation and longevity. Highly recommend.
