  • 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

  • Summary: This hard disk has a compact design, which allows for better air flow and cooling from front case fans. Hard disks, being volatile used to have three to five year warranties, but now this one is sold with only a one year warranty, which reflects poorly on its reliability. That, and higher prices since the flood of the factories in Thailand, stop this drive from receiving full marks.
  • Pros: Compact design
  • Cons: One year warranty

  • Summary: I've used dozens of these in budget builds. Great drives - never had a DOA one yet, and to be honest, actually haven't had one die on me either. Only problem is that the warranty on Seagate drives was cut short recently during the whole flood in Thailand thing. Oh well.
  • Pros: Price is good, reliability is OK, and speed is not bad.
  • Cons: Warranty just got axed.
