Summary: This is 5th drive in my NAS (other are HP branded Constellations). I noticed that this model runs 3-5 degrees cooler than the other drives. HP drives might be previous gen, that would explain the difference. They all work as they should, no problems with them so far.
Summary: Massive capacity (as of April 2013). Really shines in RAID arrays. Five year warranty. Using this to store my movies. Not so much concerned with the absolute fastest HDD on the market, but rather more concerned about reliability which is important for me.
Summary: I bought a Seagate Constellation ES 500 GB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb / s 64MB Cache 3.5 by 47 dollars and when I received my package, was a Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb / s. was very disappointed because it was not worth returning from Dominican Republic. Knowing this I kept the hard drive but I take tremendous surprise when installed. PRI MASTER HARD DISK Error: S.M.A.R.T. BAD-STATUS, BACKUP AND REPLACE.
Summary: This seems to be a good hard drive. The trick with the sata hard drives is to be sure that it will work on your motherboard... Sata 2 or Sata 3 must have the transfer rate on the advertisements. It is easy to confuse the classifications. This product came as advertise, and arrived in good time.
Summary: These drives are great, but due to the small price difference, we have started purchasing the 1TB version. Also, the latest generation does not have a 500GB model, 1TB is the smallest capacity.
