Seagate Constellation ES 1 Tb 7200RPM SATA3 Hard Drive

Summary: I haven't used these yet as I'm buying things one at a time to build a new box, but I have had very good luck with Seagate over the last 10 years. Actually I have purchased 6 of them so far and 2 SSD's are on the list for next month.
Summary: After looking over several types and sizes, we selected the SEAGATE because of the history of the brand quality, size and price. We have confidence in this selection and believe that we have a good unit.
Summary: Mine is branded as an HP drive... meant for server 24x7 operation. Seem to work well when compiling various programs under linux. Noise-wise it is quieter that the WD Black Series that I previously used, and about %50 faster in most tasks. To be fair, this is a Sata 6 GBit/sec drive.
Summary: Ad did not say that it was built for Dell, and if you don't know that voids factory warranty. Contacted Amazon and Databug Customer service full warranty as good if not better than factory, in writing. Even offered to return it after trying if not happy.
