Its Good.

Kavi, Amazon
12 January 2014
  • 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 have a noisy HDD..

TowerTom, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • 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.

Fast for a Hard Drive but has (for me) Severe vibration Problems!

MooLeitch7, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: This Seagate HDD is fast, and Windows 7 boots up in 35-40 seconds but I can't put it in my HDD cage without it shaking my house down, IT HAS HORRENDOUS VIBRATION ISSUES and for me to prevent this I used the elastic strap from a pair of old boxers, tied it around my DVD/Blu Ray Cage and as unsecure as it is up there it took down the awful noise and now my pc is pretty much silent.

Product OK Packaging was very Poor

AlanJohnPhoto, Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: The product works fine but this is no thanks to the appalling way it was packed. A hard drive is a sensitive piece of equipment and as such I would expect it to be carefully packed. It wasn't. It was loose in a box that was 10 times too big for it, which was then in an even larger box with a sparce amount of scrunched up paper. In short my view is: The product - five stars, Packing and delivery 0 stars.

Horrifed by the way Amazon packed this hard disk

Mr. N. Edwards "NiallEd", Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I ordered 2 of these hard disks and was dismayed to see that Amazon had simply put them into one of their cardboard envelopes and sent them via UPS. The first thing I did was download SeaTools from the Seagate web site to test them both. Hard disks should ALWAYS be packed into some sort of shock absorbing packaging and I am astonished at Amazon as they haven't done this with other hard disks I have bought from them.
