Works great until it dies

Bryan Jonsson, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this drive about 3 years ago and use it frequently. I'm not getting an error message on startup warning me that the drive is about to die, and I can confirm that something is indeed wrong with it since it frequently hangs when trying to access data. The aggressive power management features shorten its lifetime considerably, so don't expect this drive to last you longer than about 3 years.

  • Summary: This is one of those parts that you just keep buying again and again for each build. It's just the right size and price to fill the large-capacity, low price storage problem
  • Pros: Cost effective, Reliable
  • Cons: perhaps size, but that really just a tradeoff for greater price

  • Summary: What can be said. It's 500GB of storage. It's a Seagate. It works well. I've had to replace a few but that's the nature of components with moving parts.
  • Pros: 500GB of Storage for Cheap
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: The Barracuda 7200.12 500GB is a decent sized HDD that comes in at a great price point. Performance is fairly standard, for a HDD. For a new rig, I'd recommend this drive for mass storage but not as a boot device.
  • Pros: Price, capacity
  • Cons: None
