  • Summary: I've had this drive for a long time now and it still seems to be working well. This drive is worth getting.

  • Summary: Seems to work just fine in a ZyXEL file server. No bad sectors found so far. Works well with an older version 7200 in a RAID 1 configuration

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. The new firmware available from Seagate (CC46) was flashed flawlessly on the disk, but due to the differences between SATA and SAS interfaces SeaTools and the Model Identification tool from Seagate were not...

Good replacement drive

Jon Levinson, Amazon
27 December 2009
  • 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. Had good luck with Seagate and Western Digital drives so I stick to what has worked for me.

Hopefully an improvement over the 11th generation drives

F. Butler, Amazon
3 December 2009
  • 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. As far as noise is concerned the drive seems very quite with fast access times although I've not made any actual measurements - just my perception.

It works. It's big. It's fast. What more do you need?

Nick Newman, Amazon

  • 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. Since I have little interest in running tests to determine actual figures for maximum burst speed and so on that's about all I can say and all I care about.

  • Excerpt: Купил его 07.03.2011, 21.05.2013 он умер, выпал BSoD, я надеялся что просто что-то глюкнуло, но потом мне предложили выбрать девайс для загрузки, в биосе по сата контроллеру диск не определялся. Вынул из компа, плата черная. Не знаю, но думаю что сам хард в порядке, сгорела только плата, но вот гдеж её взять теперь.
  • Pros: Одна пластина, тихий (никогда его не слышал), не греется. В целом был доволен хардом.
  • Cons: Умер внезапно...

  • Excerpt: На работе еще 3 таких винчестера тестил - все отличные, а мой с самого первого дня скорости ниже показывает, и стабильные и частые провалы на диаграмме чтения. Но, работает уже 2 года и ни одного Reallocated сектора, смарт нормальный по производительности и отличный по здоровью.
  • Pros: 1. быстрый, скорость достойная среди конкурентов 2. не шумный 3. сильно не греется (33-40 градусов в закрытом корпусе)
  • Cons: Мне не повезло именно с моим экземпляром винта.
