Excellent Seagate SATA HDD

Cleverson M. C. Silva, Amazon

  • 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.

User Review

Enrique S., Newegg
18 May 2009
  • Summary: Recently resized the drive to make a dual boot for Windows 7 RC and I got a disc read error when I tried to boot to XP (before Win7 was installed), but that could have been my fault. Once I installed Win7 everything worked perfectly like it had been before.
  • Pros: Bought this in Oct '08 and its still running strong. Got it dual booting for XP and Win7 RC. Though reading some reviews about having it fail out at 9 months has me a tiny bit worried. But, so far, it's been perfect.
  • Cons: Nothing, bought it for a hundred bucks and I'm not sorry about it.

  • Pros: Reliable and large HDD capacity.
  • Cons: not 10,000RPM? lol

Seagate Is Perfection

Anonymous, Newegg
12 May 2009
  • Summary: Though your seek time is substantially less than a Raptor drive, it is better than any standard Western Digital (which are notorious for mysteriously "loosing" all your files) and are definitely more trustworthy than a Samsung or other brand at the same price.
  • Pros: The benefits of this hard drive are multiple. For one, running with a SATA connection, your speed is GREATLY increased from a standard IDE drive. My second Seagate 750GB hard drive, I use mine in a custom build. Another great thing with this hard drive is there is no extra software needed for set...
  • Cons: Absolutely none!

Solid and Reliable

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The firmware on both drives is identified as SD04 and has never been updated (and why would it be if it has no issues?).
  • Pros: I purchased two of these drives on 5/18/08 and they've worked perfectly 24/7 since installation. Zero complaints.
  • Cons: They run a bit warm, but nothing to be concerned about. In their current system with only moderate airflow, both idle around 40-42C.

  • Pros: Descent price for a drive
  • Cons: Pretty sure when I bought mine Mar '08 they had 5 year warranties, looks like only 3 now.

Don't fear bad batches

Arik W., Newegg
21 April 2009
  • Summary: Seagate has said the issue with their drive failures came down to a firmware issue. I believe it was just a huge bad batch of hard drives. You should not worry about purchasing this drive now.
  • Pros: I have two of these in a raid 0 and have no problems at all. I frequently check on the smart staus and see nothing troubling. I updated the firmware on both of them immediately since I bought these after the problems were resolved.
  • Cons: Scores slightly low on burst rate test in HD Tune. Nothing troubling for me.
