Summary: I have been impressed with the quality of this Seagate drive since I installed it on the first computer. Since 2011, this HD has been in 3-4 different computer configurations and is still going strong.
Pros: I have ran this drive since 2011 without a hiccup. Great for additional storage. I have used this drive in multiple machines as either boot drives or as additional storage. Works great for either.
Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this product at all...
Summary: I actually didn't mean to buy this Hard Drive....I wanted to buy the Seagate 500GB SATA drive (not this SV35 Series) but this was the one that was in my wish list for some reason and I didn't double check my shopping cart!! lol. There was a $10 difference in price, not sure why.
Pros: Lots of space. Quiet, Fast, Cheap. Installs programs quickly and does everything i want.
Summary: My DVR failed and I opened the DVR box to investigate. To my surprise the hard drive was the same as my computer hard drive. I proceeded to remove the HD to swap with my computer drive, and the DVR worked. However, I notice my computer hard drive Id's were not the same the the DVR Id.
Pros: I recently purchased a used Dell Dimension E520 in just about mint condition. It had no hard drive though as the previous owner kept it for personal/security reasons. Understandable. So I found myself in need of a hard drive. Came to Newegg and found this Seagate SV35 Series ST3500411SV 500GB 720...
Summary: At the time I'm writing this review, the price of this drive has gone up $15. I paid $85 plus tax for this. I was going to get a Toshiba 1TB that was the same price as one of the daily deals, but it was a bare drive, and I wanted my drive to at least come with an extra SATA cable.
Pros: Easy install. Works great. 500gb of space even though i already need more. haha. If youre a gamer like me but on a cheap budget pick it up. If you've got a lil more coin to spend then i'd recommend a bit more space, But this things working great for me so far :D
Cons: Its not a SSD and it knows it, no matter how hard it trys to be :p
