Summary: This SSD breathed new life into my PC. Unbelievable what a difference this has made. Startup it incredible and operation once booted is practically instantaneous. Only issue I had is S.M.A.R.T. feature isn't working with my mobo. O'well. Love this thing! Would highly recommend!
Summary: Check the prices at the time of writing this review the 240 GB model was $50 less than the 120 GB version. I always recommend getting the biggest hard drive you can afford because at some point or another you're going to need the space. The 240 GB version should be enough for most people if you doing basic Internet with your computer and have a pretty decent music/photo collection. But if you doing anything with video I definitely recommend going with the 480 GB version.
Summary: Insanely quick, especially compared to the HDD I had in my laptop before. Boots up Linux Mint 17 in less than 20 seconds, Windows in 25. Set up a multi-OS boot (with Windows first) without many issues. The other reviews nail the specs; I was debating between the Samsung Evo Pro (for $40 more) or this, and highly doubt I'd be able to tell the difference. Have had 2 Seagate drives in the past, and this is another solid drive (no awful pun intended) from them.
Summary: Been using for about 2 weeks with Windows 8, so far no issues. I did not believe how big of an advantage SSD would be over HDD, but here we are. Got it on sale; if you're looking at one of the Samsung Evo drives this is comparable (slightly less high performance) if you can find it for a (lower) price.
Summary: I use many SSD from different makers, never had a working drive, that is not compatible. The Seagte 600 240GB does not work with multiple boards. Using it on Intel DH87RL or DH85FL motherboards, as boot drive or connect it as secondary. Windows 7 Pro, shuts down with blue screen code 0x0000001E. Looks like drive has a computability problem (as 2 similar drives bought at the same times, behave the same). Move it to Asus Z77 board, it works only if SMART is disabled.
Summary: I use many SSD from different makers, the Seagte 600 is the only one that does not work. Brand new on DH87RL Intel motherboard, as main or as secondary. As main it boots up windows, and blue screen comes with0x0000001E, as secondary drive, once installed same 0x0000001e. Looks like drive computability problem (as 2 similar drives bought at the same times, behave the same). I can not return them, and will not accept recondition drives for new one.
