Summary: I bought this drive for a new Windows 7 install. It is deathly slow. Fortunately I had a spare Seagate 7200 RPM drive lying around which works great. The green is quiet, I'll give it that, but no hope for the performance. It might be OK for storage, but it's useless as a boot drive.
Summary: Wish I could recommend this drive - but after the initial period in my NAS, it started showing errors. I put it in a Netgear ReadyNAS NV+, and right after the return warranty expired on this, it catastrophically failed. As in, "now an expensive paper weight" failed.

Summary: This hdd failed after ~3 hours of usage. Bios couldn't find this hdd, it didn't played any noise at all and there is nothing you can really do about hdd. You just plug in two connectors and if it is not working then it means it's dead.

Cons: Винт умер. Куплен был в январе 2010 года. Сначала начал отваливаться в чехле через LAN, потом перестал определяться в чехле через USB. Напрямую подсоединенный к компу кое-как определился, прогнал утилитой с сайта производителя, показало, что слишком много бэд блоков. Кое как за ночь слил с него о...
