Summary: Replaced a bad hard drive in a surveillance DVR. It's been two months and no issues at all with the replacement. Installation was very easy. I'll give it four stars because I'm not gonna with a year to do this review.
Summary: I purchased 5 of these drives to run in a RAID. One failed within 6 months which is why I took 1 star off. Otherwise I really love these drives. I chose these over the NAS drives because at the time they had much better reviews. The one thing I love about these drives is that they run extremely cool. With 5 in one case they have never broke 30C under pretty heavy load.
Great addition to a PC NVR system, plenty of space for recording archives.

Summary: Ordered this drive to install into a Core2 Duo SFPC as a network video recorder rig. I simply pulled the old drive and installed this Seagate in it's place. Installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bit flawlessly. I am able to realize the full (formatted) capacity of 1.81TB, thereby giving me plenty of space to run my 4 camera CCTV system. The drive is quiet and runs smoothly.
