Summary: RMA this HD? Has anyone ever had a remanufactured HD actually work? I won't be wasting money on a remanufactured HD. I wish Hitachi still produced IDE HD's. I have four computers with Hitachi IDE's and four years later they still run fine. Hitachi also respaced HD's with NEW ones.
Pros: Worked fine on installation.
Cons: I 100% expected this last choice of hard drive manufactures to last about 8 months before dying. I was wrong. The Western Digital, BTW, is my LAST choice just behind Seagate and neither has lived down to my lowest expectations. Every year companies find a way to make cheaper and cheaper quality p...
Summary: It's a WD. I've always been a big supporter of their products, they have never failed me yet. They've been a market leader for many years, I build my comps with their drives. 2 things I've never had fail, my Asus motherboards and my WD Hard Drives. Happy shopping : )
Pros: An excellent choice for a replacement Tivo DVR drive and upgrade. Noticably faster than my last older drive, also a WD, but fairly old and heavily used. It's an AV drive--that means its specifically built for constant cycling use, writing and rewriting, ie digital surveillance or DVR, not for you...
Cons: None that I can see or hear, I'm just extremely pleased with the overall speed and capacity.
Summary: NEWEGG.com was'nt the problem...They were amazing...all my product I purchused from them have been as promised...there online chat feature has been exceptional! in the chat, I had with Marsha(I think) she explained what I should understand...with the delivery process!
Pros: they did'nt spontainisly fragment!!!
Cons: I bought 2 of these drive for stripping reasons for my older,AMD, chainteck MB...it had been running 6 years straight 24/7... with maxtor drives...well main drive died..and the the seconday 120 GB....was having problems... so I elected to get new drives for the mother board... happily they arrive...
Summary: All Computer Hardware that has space like RAM, Hard Drives etc. Will have a certain subtraction of that space. Raven indicated he felt cheated buying 320 gigs and only getting 300 something. A fundamental fact about bits, bytes and space is you will always lose a percentage of that space.
Pros: None, just older technology soon to be obsolete.
Summary: i wish seagate was still what they once were. they actually gave you more then what you paid for and they lasted for ever i still have 6 seagate sata drives that are from when first satas came out and they are still running strong!
Pros: decent price for something this old was putting it in my mechanics pc for his alldata software ( diagrams schematics exploded views for every car make/model )
Cons: advertised as 320 gb... win xp only detects 305225 mb ... typical every single wd drive i ever get i get less than what i pay for.
Summary: Lautes, brummig-nerviges Laufgeräusch im cctv Dauerbetrieb. Ich habe die Platte seit 9 Monaten in störungsfreiem Betrieb. Leider gibt es im IDE-Sektor keine leise Festplatte mehr zu kaufen. Ich habe meinen AV706 umgebaut und ein Scythe SQD-1000+ Scythe Slip Stream SY1225SL12SL verbaut.
