Summary: Use these in my homebrew NAS box. Fast, flawless, and cheap. I've been a Western Digital cheerleader for years, and lately the WD quality has drastically suffered. So Segate now has my business.

Very fast when copying to back up. I didn't really know that they were even running.

But Seagate by far has been the fastest and more durable hard drive I've owned. I trust my business and personal data on Seagate hard drives. The price I paid for each hard drive can not compare to the importance and value of my business and personal data.
