Summary: Run from this drive. I bought 5 of these to populate a home server 2 years ago. When the first failed I bought another for a total of 6 purchased. It failed as well as 4 additional hard drives; the most recent one died last week. Only one of the Barracuda's is still running.
Summary: I own quite a bit of high capacity drives across various manufacturers and like the title states, this is the only one that has stopped working out of blue (click of death?) just months after the manufacturer period expired (my other drives are past warranty and are still in working condition).
Pros: Worked while it lasted.
Cons: Coincidence that it died shortly after manufacturer warranty?
Excerpt: I upgraded my Windows 7 machine from a 1TB to a 2TB hard drive it was easy to install. I used Clonezilla Live to transfer an image of my old drive to the new one and then expanded the 1TB partition to a 2TB partition using AOMEI Partition Assistant pro.
Excerpt: Arrived on time (blazing fast), hard drive was well packaged, easy to install, thought (and maybe it was there and I missed it) it would have been an idea to add the SADA connecting cord as a Suggested Product.
