Summary: I purchased this for a computer I custom built and I've never had an issue with it's performance. I generally use that computer as a giant storage facility for my massive music library and 1.5 Tb definitely does the trick.
Summary: I checked around and amazon had the best price for this 1.5TB hard drive. I received the it in 3 day of purchase. The hard drive works great and is very quiet. I purchased it for my surveillance system, and so far it is working as it should. Seagate makes very good hard drives, and I have never had any problems with them, except when one went bad on me. I ran a software from their website, and return it with the results determent it was bad.
Summary: This is the 2nd Seagate Green 5,900 RPM 1.5GB hard drive I have purchased for use as a backup drive in external enclosures. The 1st drive has been running continuously for about 1 and a half years with no problems. This drive has been running for a few months and also has had no problems. Definitely would purchase again.
Summary: This review is on the 1.5TB drive. Runs cool in my enclosed heat generating media center. Fast transfer times, no studdering of 1080P MPEG-4 AVC HD HD-DTS video. In addition to having a fair amount of storage, my reason for buying this was it's reduced energy use and subsequent lower heat generation in my enclosed system. Kids watched videos for an entire rainy saturday with no issues.
Summary: I bought this 5900 rpm bare HD & installed it as an ext HD drive (using eSATA Rosewill case). Seems to run a bit faster than the 7200 rpm Seagate extHD (eSATA) that it replaced. But I was also pleasently surprised to find that it is MUCH quieter and runs a lot cooler.
