Summary: This product have been serving my need for over four years with out any problem I've had WD black which is also very reliable but I went with this because it's cheaper.. I'm sticking with seagate and wd only
Summary: These are certified repaired drives, and I don't see that noted anywhere on the page. I knew they were OEM, but the refurbished status was something of a surprise considering that they're in line price-wise with fresh OEM drives.
Summary: This drive failed after 5 months use. I'm RMA'ing it now as it's under warranty but just lost a ton of data. Apparently this model has MANY issues that cause it to fail BOTH hardware design and firmware. Definitely not a good combination! Thanks a lot Seagate, you just lost all my future business.
Summary: If you need a good HDD, Seagate is the brand. I have others Seagate HDD and all of them are excellent. For this item, the only note is that it is a little noisy (when data is being read or written). However, it is not very disturbing.
Summary: I ordered a 500Gb version of this hard drive which was listed as NEW. When I got it, it was a CERTIFIED REPAIRED hard drive. About 3 weeks later the hard drive died and I lost all my data. I sent it back to Computer Geeks and they still sent me back another CERTIFIED REPAIRED hard drive.
