It is a hard drive.

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.
Summary: Excellent drive thus far (6 weeks usage) .... let's see how it lasts longer term. As usual, quick delivery. Pricier than I like (hence only 4 stars) but if it performs for 5+ years it will be well worth $$$ for critical server data storage.
Summary: Constellation class drives are much pricier that their regular counterparts, but in this instance I was building a server, and data protection was paramount. When your data is at stake, its stupid to buy cheap drives for the most important part of the PC --your data! The extra features help to reduce false positives, and the energy savings make the server less expensive to run in the long run.
Summary: Bought two of those to run in my Synology DS1010+ NAS. So far the drives perform very well. The larger buffer (64MB) and the higher rotation speed (7200rpm) are noticeable. The only thing that keeps me on my toe's are that the drives if not idle continuously run at higher temperature than my old drives. Bought them from Amazon in OEM packaging. No complaint here. Excellent protection upon arrival.
