Summary: Yes, I would recommend this drive. I have had one on my Dell for a good year and it has been rock solid. I wish NewEgg would package the drives so you'd have confidence when they arrive. If you've bought a drive from them you know what I mean.
Pros: No problems, fast, easy to install. Computer is very stable and happy with it.
Cons: No bugs No defects with drive NewEgg needs better packaging.
Pros: I have always loved Seagate disks and the Enterprise disks have been the best for me. Fast and reliable. These are very solid and I can recomend them.
Cons: I connected the disk using a USB 3.0 external enclosure and it would not recognize it at all. Downloaded the Seagate Disk Wizard and it did not see it either. Spent 2 hours looking for a solution on the web till I installed the disk internally and, presto, the OS finally saw the disk and allowed ...
Summary: When using Windows 7 with any HDD larger than 2 TB, you will have to break the HDD into different Partitions (basic disk) or Volumes (Dynamic disk). NTFS does not recognize partitions or volumes larger than 2 TB.

Pros: Shipping was very fast to the door.
Cons: Cant get windows 7 to recognize the whole 4tb. Cant get seagates tool to recognize that its a 4tb drive. I have win7 x64 and its fully updated. Do not have a uefi bios. maybe newegg shipped me a 2tb drive in error? Would be nice to return the drive and get 2x Seagate Constellation ES.3 2TB
Pros: I have two of these drives for archiving 1000s of 1+ GB files. Since they will be archive drives, they will not be worked very hard, but I hope that the 5 year warranty indicates reliability. Subjectively, they are fast. Copying the large files from one of these drives to the other (large sequent...
Pros: Use Win 8.1 Disk Management to convert to GPT disc if you want to use all the drive's available space for a single partition! Writes seem fast, around 100MB/s on a SATA II controller. So far, so good but then ALL of them usually work great right out of the box so let's give this one some spin tim...
Cons: Drive was enclosed in a plastic caddy, which punctured all the air bags in the shipping box from it's sharp corners, NEWEGG could have packed it better for shipping than bouncing around in a box with a bunch of empty plastic bags..
Pros: Well packaged Subjectively fast, probably the 5.25 drive means that the track size is large so the dead movement is small, means a faster drive. 5 yr warranty
Cons: Can we have a Canada Post shipping option or a UPS ring the door bell option. The UPS habit of sneaking up to the front door and leaving a $300+ item outside without even ringing the door bell gets a bit wearing sometimes and its happened more than once.
