Summary: Great hard drive it is quiet has loads of space does everything and anything you would need a hard drive to do. The shipping was fast and it was packaged very well and safely. I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: One of the 500GB drives I recently purchased from Storite thru Amazon stopped working within a few days of receipt. Storite responded the same day and offered a full refund including paying for shipping back the dead drive. Even better, they agreed to send out a replacement drive even before I was able to get to the Post Office with the old drive. They answered EVERY email within an hour or so and some within minutes with complete respect for me as a customer.
Summary: This was less than a comparable IDE at the time so I grabbed it and a "HDE SATA to PATA.IDE Hard Driver Interface Adapter" big fast drive at the time with great warranty no problems yet after being in service for a few years now retired.
Summary: I always liked seagate drives for their longevity and quietness. This drive is no different then any other seagate drive it is quiet and so far lasted longer then the other drive i bought before the seagate....
Summary: Worked great for a long time. Then at the 3.5 year mark it completely bit the dust, couldn't mount or recover or even reformat (using Linux with ext4). Good thing the warranty was 3 years long :/ Now I'm out a 500GB drive and all my data, thanks Seagate. I'll try someone else's drives from now on.
