Summary: I will tell you it was hard for me to take a bet on seagate again after replacing and RMA'ing over and over literally Hundreds of seagate .11 era drives h work. But the price couldn't be approached on this drive and i took a gamble on it as a personal media storage for my parents place. so far so good a few weeks in it runs fairly cool and quiet here is hoping it keeps that up. so far 4 stars -1 for me having to worry about it being a seagate.
Summary: Purchased and installed this as an internal drive in my linux system for faster photo processing and transfer. Formatted it up ext4, and it is working well. The 2TB capacity is nice for this price.
Summary: Used this in a NAS which is not heavily used and mainly is on standby so a couple of these drives fit the bill for reasonable $ per GB. The drive performance easily keeps up with the budget NAS network interface. I was using Hitachi ( now Toshiba) drives for a long time but have had good luck with Seagate like I had with Hitachi.
