Wasn't worth my time

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Shortly after finding this, my friend needed an HDD and I was going to tell him to get this one, but I found out for cheaper I could've gotten told him to get a 500gb WD HDD, so that's what I did.
  • Pros: It was decent.
  • Cons: (see "Other thoughts")

When They Works They Seem Okay

Mr. L., Newegg
14 October 2013
  • Summary: When you buy these I would hook them up outside the case first to see if they even power on or you will just be having to take them out of the case if they don't just like I had to. The new ones I tested before putting in my case and they both came on and were recognized in the BIOS/CMOS just fine. It's just the scratchy sound that's a little concerning and annoying. Again as long as they work I'll live with it.
  • Pros: I got two of these and when they work they seem to work okay.
  • Cons: When I got these one of them was DOA. The motor on it wouldn't even come on the harddrive just kept making a weird sound like a beep or something also it was not recognized by the BIOS/CMOS at all. The second harddrive occasionally had the same problem, but it was intermittent meaning the problem came and went away sometimes. It was recognized by the BIOS/CMOS sometimes. Got both RMA'd and got back two working drives, however, the new drives after getting everything i...

  • Pros: worked fine while it worked
  • Cons: 6 months after I built a brand new PC, BSOD's started; 3 weeks of diagnosing later, the PC stopped recognizing the hard drive; works fine now with an old spare hard drive

  • Summary: Excellent quality for the price. I have been using Seagate drives for a long time and never had a problem. This drive was easy to install, recognized in BIOS after install, formatted no problem. Running smooth for over two months now. Good buy indeed!

Cheap and it Works

Patrick D., Newegg
31 December 2012
  • Summary: I used this to replace a failing drive in a ReadyNAS 1000S that has a four disk X-RAID array which is nearly full, so this thing just got baptized with almost a full 250 GB of writes from re-synchronization in its first 90 minutes of use. Faster drives exist, but anything quicker would be wasted in a six year old NAS that is easily CPU bound by a single large CIFS transfer...
  • Pros: cheap, and it works
  • Cons: could still be cheaper?
