Summary: The drive worked for a week and then came a fatal crash that obliged me to format. After a lengthy session to re-install the operating system and personal files (thank god for Time Machine)it worked for a day or two, and now I get the Hardware problem message from disk utility.
Summary: I will be changing the hard drive to another. This model is the same that came in the Acer laptop, but I will be switching to another that is compatible, but will never, ever use Seagate again.
Pros: None, except that New Egg provides quick service and shipping. I only hope it provides just as prompt return info. and service
Cons: Seagate makes junk. It quit working before the software was even installed.
Summary: I've had issues with Seagate before, but I've *never* had a drive crash after only a year. This will be my last Seagate product.
Pros: - Decent speeds. - ...that's about it.
Cons: Lasted maybe 6 months before it started giving me problems here and there. Shortly after 12 months it finally crashed. SeaTools was able to repair the corrupted sectors, but the damage done to my Win7 partition was irreparable. Definitely wouldn't recommend as a primary drive (or to store anythin...
Summary: My Asus UL80VT came with this drive and it was working fine and then all of a sudden it just died on me. Recovered enough data to salvage the drive -- big mistake because it died again less than 1 month later. Really stupid mistake on my part. Will buy another brand with a higher capacity.
Pros: Fast enough for a laptop HDD. Runs pretty cool.
Cons: Prone to sudden crashes. Absolutely unreliable.
Summary: This drive was a replacement for my laptop. Though I normally get a new laptop every year. I like my dual core HP and decided to buy a segate (as usual) as an upgrade. I like seagate but this drive died within months.
Pros: Fast newegg shipping, price, Seagate name, warranty
Summary: Most likely runs too hot for console use.
Pros: Drive worked for two months...
Cons: HDD failed while playing Army of Two. PS3 wanted to "fix" the file system but could not. SpinRite could not recover the data also. (showed as a red sector near the end of the drive. Lost 2 months worth of save games...
