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. No problems runs great, smooth, fast and quiet.
Summary: These are not capable of 6 GB/sec. I have a 6 GB/sec RAID controller on my motherboard with 6GB/s SATA cables attached to these drives. The BIOS and disk utilities in the OS detect them as 3GB/s drives. Amazon should make them change the description and the company should give me a partial refund.
Summary: Price was right for a "new" HD but SMART says mine has been used for 3000 hours. Seagate says OEM, no Seagate warranty. Maybe the vendor [TEK SOLUTIONS]steps up in 4 years, probably not. Misleading description to say the least. Amazon needs to police this a bit more diligently. I increased my initial rating. The HD was "used" but the vendor [TEK SOLUTIONS] stood behind this 100%. I think these reviews are mingled with other vendors for this HD.
Summary: Solid 3Gb/s performance from a USED drive. My last 6 drives ordered under this item number (multiple vendors) have been well used (average 6,000 hrs each); with all being returned. While the performance and reliability of Seagate Constellation drives is excellent, I just don't like being mislead; (e.g.used 3 Gb/s drives instead of the advertised new 6 Gb/s drives). So much for bargain shopping.
Good hard drive but watch out for sellers selling DELL

Summary: ***** BUYER BEWARE ***** This is a great product but I bought this thinking I was getting the real deal - instead it showed up with a DELL label on it! This means a ONE year warranty through the company that you buy it from on Amazon INSTEAD OF a FIVE year warranty through Seagate!!! My response to the sellers: if you're not selling the same product as the one listed - list it as something else!
