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 have used both Western Digital Green 1TB and Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 1TB in DLINK 323 NAS device for about a month. These are my experiences... Seagate didn't need firmware update. Packaging: WD was packaged very well with cushion padding where as Seagate was packed really lousy.
Summary: Even though there were warnings about problems with the firmware on these hard drives I needed a new hard drive in the worst way. I have preferred Seagate hard drives for at least ten years now, after many problems with Maxtor and Western Digital. I wasn't disappointed.
Summary: I bought this about six months ago when the price was much higher, but I still feel like I got an exceptional deal. This had NCQ (native command queuing) that most drives do not. That means when files are highly fragmented, the disk drive itself intelligently reads the files according to where they...
Summary: Shipping was sooner than promised and hard drive works without a flaw. I had to download the installation utility from Seagate's web site but that was no problem. After my computer recognized the new drive, formatting was simple and now I have an extra tera-byte of disk storage.
