Seems to work just fine.

David N. Moore "keyes", Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought this about a month ago. Took a couple of weeks to get it all set up since I didn't have enough sata cables laying around. The drive has a massive amount of storage compared to my previous drives, and it can sometimes take a little time to spin up (not using RAID right now).

Quiet and Reliable

R. Ocampo "Artisan", Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I am extremely happy with this hard drive. It's quiet, massive at 2TB, and fast - 7200RPM with a 64MB cache. I have a love/hate relationship with Seagate drives because over the years when the drives work, they last a long time.

Not a bad price, a good drive

Nathan Bowhay, Amazon
30 August 2011
  • Summary: It's a hard drive, it works so far and was an ok price. I have stuck with Seagate for a while cause they haven't failed on me, but I recently got a WD 3TB because I heard they where good again. The thing failed on me 1 month after I got it, hopefully this doesn't do the same.

Huge Capacity, Average Performance

ScorpioWolf, Amazon
8 January 2011
  • Summary: These Seagate SATA III drives work as advertised and provide plenty of storage space for music, photos and video. I purchased two of these drives for my new I7-950 PC and set them up in a RAID1 for data protection for use as storage only (the OS is installed on a Sandforce based 128GB SSD drive...

So far, so good!

  • Summary: I've got to admit, after purchasing a 1TB drive I couldn't imagine ever needing more storage. Well, after my original hard drive failed, I don't think I can get enough for backups! So when this popped up on Vine, I didn't hesitate. The frustration free package is fantastic.

Excellent large drive

Jeffrey A. Veyera "Jeff Veyera", Amazon
11 November 2010
  • Summary: I recently had occasion to use this drive following the corruption of my old 1 TB drive. Amazon's frustration-free packaging made it a snap---I just dropped it into my open bay, attached the cables, partitioned the drive, installed my OS in the primary partition, and voila!

Colin Boyle, Amazon
15 December 2010
  • Summary: This drive is massive. I don't think I will ever be able to fill it any time soon. It is also very fast, write speeds and access speeds are great. I cant sing its praises enough.

  • Summary: An und für sich eine empfehlenswerte Platte. Man sollte aber darauf achten, daß sie ordentlich behandelt wurde / wird und, wie jede andere Festplatte auch, keinen unnötigen Stößen oder sonstigen externen Kräften ausgesetzt wird, die z. B.
