Summary: I have used this hard drive for a few months now, and I can't really say anything bad about the drive itself. However, while researching this product, I did not come across any explicit warning recommending it not be used in a hot-swap dock.
Summary: I purchased three of these drives to expand the internal storage in my heavily upgraded PowerMac video editing system. The drives perform as advertised, but I failed to check the peak current draw at start-up which exceeded the available current in my 1KW power supply.
Summary: I bought two (one for primary drive and one for backup use). One inside workstation, another inside esata/usb external enclosure. I just had to try them, as they blow away everything solely on price. Of course, I focused in on the reliability and firmware problems.

Summary: After a brutal introduction with faulty firmware that caused many users to hate this drive, Seagate has finally got it right and produced a firmware that allows this monster to work to its full potential.
Didn't mention that this drive is OEM and has older firmware.

Summary: I brought this drive at 12/6/08 and when I received it, it was just a plain brownbox oem drive with no instructions nor cables. The box looks like it has been previously opened also. It didn't matter to me because I have lots of sata cables anyways and I don't need instructions.
Summary: Naja eigentlich hätte Sie ja 5 Sterne verdient, aaaaaber es werden nicht die ganzen 1500GB sondern nur 1429 GB, was wenn ich bedenke, wie viele schon geschrieben haben, dass sie weniger hatten, noch recht gut ist.
Summary: Habe 3 Platten gekauft, zwei davon als Raid 1 Verbund, eine weitere als "Datenspeicher" mit geringer "Wichtigkeit". Alle Platten waren bei mir in Ordnung und laufen seit einigen Tagen ununterbrochen in meinem Mac Pro.
Summary: Ormai la scenza ha fatto passi da giganti rispetto a soli 20 anni fa,quando nascevano per la prima volta i fantastici commodor e 386.adesso gli HD,che un tempo non raggiungevano neanche il GB, arrivano addirittura a 1500 GB.tantissimo spazio direte,che cosa se ne fa un semplice...
Pros: sotto costo,affidabile e caratteristiche nella media,oltre alla grande capacità di memorizzazione
Cons: bisogna che il privato controlli prima il tipo di attacco della MB . in caso acquistare adattatori
Summary: Ich habe 2 dieser Platten in einem ReadyNas Duo verbaut. Sehr gut Platten. Sie laufen jetzt schon ca. 4 Monate fehlerfrei. Die Platten sind außerdem geräuscharm, das ReadyNas steht in unmittelbarer Nähe zu meinem Arbeitsplatz und man hört die Platten selbst bei hoher Last kaum.
