Hmmmm

Peter, dabs.com

  • Summary: OK, this is a decent enough drive. It runs decently fast - about as fast as a 7200 RPM 5.25" HD should run. I bought it to replace a 5-y.o. Western Digital Green HD which was beginning to give me some concern. But - it hums. At 120Hz, so it's an insidious hum which isn't a multiple of UK mains hum, so it stands out from normal domestic background noise. I've attached Acoustifeet to my PC's case, and that seems to have mitigated the issue a little. I should have known.

Difficult to instal

  • Excerpt: This hard drive came with no instructions and no software to copy the old drive to the new drive. Once I found that I could download the instructions and software from the Seagate website I was able to copy the old drive to the new drive; and it now works fine. I wish Seagate had included this with the drive.
  • Pros: Quiet, Reliable
  • Cons: Difficult To Install

  • Summary: Put maybe one or two of these guys in your PC and your set for awhile with the amount you get for it and the price is okay I truly recommend this but only if you could get it on sale the 125$ price is a little steep and after buying this I found it on other websites for much cheaper

Its Good.

  • Summary: Considering the price, this is a really good internal harddrive. Have used this drive for a while now, and realised that the drive wears down quite quickly over a year of using this. I have built a custom pc and using this as a primary hardrive. Over a year i have been maintaining the PC very well, ie Run defrag weekly, run CCleaner weekly, controlled startup items, etc. And after a year worth of using it, it has slowed down my computer's performance considerably.

If you receive a noisy HDD..

TowerTom, Amazon

  • Summary: If you have a noisy hard drive it probably means you've been given an older version. Cambridge Accessories have been selling the 7200.10 version, made in 2006 but the version in this listing is 7200.14, the most recent. Double check the model number listed here on Amazon (ST500DM002) with the one on your hard drive. If it's different then you can return the goods to the seller and request they pay for return as they've sent you an incorrect item.

Decent, but loud

  • Summary: Very easy to install and works well, but mine is rather loud when reading data, much louder than my old Western Digital one.
