5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great drive, not a problem out of it after several years. Virtually silent; have to listen closely to hear it.

Cons: usually runs between 90 and 100 Fahrenheit so I keep a HDD cooler on it.

Other Thoughts: Never had a problem with a Seagate drive. I've an 80GB drive just like this one that I've had for a year longer with no problems. I even have a >10 year old 500MB Seagate that's still running strong.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this drive!

Pros: WHISPER quite, and very low vibration. 7200 revs, is pretty sweet. It comes with a CD that makes installation easy enough for grandma. Included CD offers RAM check, IDE bus check, partitioner, and even partition copier (so you can completely switch from your old drive).

Cons: Not much, really. The jumper was a little smaller than others, so it took maybe one extra second to set.

Other Thoughts: I got it when retail was one-and-a-half hundred USD. Pricey then, but well worth it.

It noted on the box that a feature was "under 25 decibels". HAH! More like, twelve!

Comments: I bought this same Hd at Cxxxt Cxxx. This is the 1st part for this computer that i didn't buy at Newegg. This Drive is so quiet. I cant hear it even running. this drive is very fast too it increased my system performance greatly. The best IDE Drive i have ever used, and the 5 yr warranty is amazing

5 out of 5 eggsSo Quiet

Comments: The 150GB is 160x1000 bytes, which isn't technically 160GB. It's just a marketing thing they've been doing for years. Same reason my 60GB xxx only shows up around 55GB or so. Anyhow, this drive is superb! Quiet as a mouse (literally) and its performance is (in my opinion) as good as IDE gets.
But I can't get over how quiet it is... It's creepy. :) Definately recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsCapacity Differences

Comments: <a href='http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte' target=_blank>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte</a>

The reason you get 149GB instead of 160 is because drive manufacturers define a GB as 10^9 Bytes while the rest of the computer world define a GB as 1024^3 (2^30).

5 out of 5 eggsMuch better than WD

Comments: If your only seeing 150gb, use PartitionMagic Pro. Your only get 152GB max. I have bought many hard drives in my days, and can say that IBM's Seagate models are superb, and are the only hard drives that carry a Manufacturer Warranty of 5 years. I always have problems with Western Digital hard drives flying after like 26 months. I bet thats why they only give you a 24 month Warranty.
