Not the model I wanted
16 July 2013
Summary: I was looking for an identical drive so I could try and swap out controllers and recover data from a failed Seagate drive. This wasn't close to what I had. A Google search for the model number I had listed this unit as a top match. So be careful in checking model numbers and specs.
Summary: Despite having read the reviews for this item and noting the negative points I went ahead and bought one of these drives. After all they are cheap. Other suppliers of drives wrap the drive in an hermetically sealed antistatic bag.
