Summary: Another junk Seagate drive. The low RPM and paltry 8MB cache make this drive a near total failure. Had one fail in a DVR and replaced with with a WD drive. 7200 RPM and 16MB cache make my DVR run lightyears better than this piece of junk. AVOID SEAGATE DRIVES UNLESS YOU ENJOY POOR PERFORMANCE AND SUDDEN DRIVE FAILURES.
Summary: I bought this disk as a replacement HD for my DVR. My DVR was out of warranty, and to "fix" it I needed to send it back and have them replace it for $250. Instead I bought this disk for $35. Although I ordered the 5900RPM disk for acoustic considerations, I received the 7200RPM model. But my concerns were unfounded; the drive is as silent as my other unit which still has the original 5900RPM drive.
Summary: This hhd does its jobs perfectly. It's not terribly fast but I've had no problem playing games on it and storing all of my files. I can't leave out that I ordered the 500gb version and received a 250gb version. I contacted the seller through Amazon and the refunded me half the price I paid the same day. So despite their mess up they were more than accommodating on fixing the issue and overall I ended up paying 10 less than the 250gb version so I can't complain!
