Summary: i used this as an upgrade from my barracuda 1T. seagate offers all of the tools necessary to format the new drive and to clone the old drive. after i cloned the drive i was able to create a partition. the free tools i downloaded from seagate's page make everything simple.

Summary: Have used this drive for over a year now and it's running great. True size is 3.63 gigs. Fast transfer and access rates, good temperature readings with an average of 42C in the hot summer and 30C in the cold winter. Make sure to buy a SATA III cable.
Summary: I've had this drive for sometime now. It's currently being used inside a HP Elite desk 8200 Small Form Factor. I'm using an Intel SSD 530 series 120GB for the OS (Windows 7) and the (partitioned) Seagate 4TB as storage. It's a perfect combination when your system is limited on internal space.
Excerpt: I use these for video file BU. I just use a dock that they drop in and I dupe my RAIDs for offsite storage. Or let clients keep them. This is less expensive and better quality than most USB case drives. Also takes up less room.
