Summary: I bought 3 drives in 2010. 2 of the 3 drives failed within the first year. The realiability of Seagate's storage products has plummeted over the last 5 years. Read any of their storage products reviews. They are not your grandfather's drive anymore.
Cons: This hard-drive died on me out of the blue. BSOD then it would boot and hang and now it just doesn't power on. I don't recommend this HD for anyone. If you do buy spend the extra money for the extended warranty because you're going to need it.

Pros: cheap gamble I love the opportunity to comment on so-called refurbed products
Cons: After buying several refurbed 2.5 and 3.5 ide and sata drives over the last few years, my success rate is one lasted 2 years,, some dead out of the box and others fail in days or weeks. Its clear to me that these so-called refurbished drives are simply returned drives that failed the first custom...
