Summary: Seagate has always been a brand that i trust. i have had HDD failures from other brands but never with Seagate. Plus they are balanced on Hofmann balancers which are also of the highest quality
Summary: I bought this drive as part of my first home built computer. Initially it was a great drive, but after 6 months, the drive started showing signs of failing. It started freezing intermittently and dropping parts of files. After a while of this, it just completely gave up. My only real gripe with this drive besides it failing prematurely was how incredibly loud it is.
Summary: I had to return the first drive I got of these, the second one I got is no better. QUIET?! I can hear this thing three rooms down from my office! Noisy as crap! Gonna have to return this one too.
Summary: One of the two best drive names out there. This drive is the best for price, speed and longevity. Its a small work horse. I rarely need to replace a Segate. The PC usually needs replaced first.
Summary: I installed two of these in a RAID mirror configuration for storing office files. They're fast and together quieter than the HD that came in the Compaq. I've never had a bad experience with a Seagate so I'm extra confident in this setup.
