Excerpt: Bought a new Dell XPS from B&H and wanted to configure with a backup internal RAID drive. This Seagate drive worked perfectly. Just needed the SATA cable and a bit of courage to open my new machine and mess with it. So far so good. Seems to have worked perfectly.
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?
