Useful, fair price, pretty good reliability.
16 April 2015
Summary: I have used these Seagate 1TB drives in my home RAID (redundant array of inexpensive drives) for years. I finally had the first one go bad last week. It lasted 5 years, and its mate is still going strong. Good bang for the buck, and great overall reliability.
Summary: It's a one terabyte drive, what more can you say about it? I tried to mirror this drive from an identical Seagate ST21000428AS but windows won't let me do it, saying there isn't enough room. I guess I should have bought the second drive slightly larger.
Summary: I bought 5 of these about a year and a half ago befor the hhd market went crazy. Got them for 40$ a peice on sale. 1 was doa but the other 4 have run flawlessly. I have 3 in raid0 and the other one by its self in another build.Great price for the performace at the time i bought.
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.
