Excellent, but don't despair if something comes up.

Summary: The product is excellent. Virtually noiseless, speedy and big capacity. Firmware was not the latest and I read some reviews about Seagate issuing firmware updates on this model and others of the same series. The disk is SAS (Serially Attached SCSI), not native SATA.
Summary: Quiet, fast, low energy consumption. Purchased one 7200.12 at a local retailer for use in an Apple Mac Dual 1.8GHz PowerPC G5 as an upgrade for my 7200.7 160 GB Seagate media drive. So pleased with it I purchased a second from Amazon to swap out my boot drive too.
Hopefully an improvement over the 11th generation drives

Summary: I've only had the drive for about a month and the real test of longevity will come in the months and years to come. The drive is easy to install and the software that Seagate provides will permit you to easily set up the drive in a number of different ways.
It works. It's big. It's fast. What more do you need?

Summary: A disk drive to me is one of those things that don't get much notice unless they don't work well. I don't notice this one. It works well and seems to be fairly fast. It's quiet. It has a SATA connection. It has more space than most people could reasonably use.
Summary: Although my friends didn't recommend this for me, I bought it because it was the cheapest at the time, it works fine for me at the moment, currently one year old, will post back if anything goes wrong.
