4 out of 5 eggsGood for a few years

Pros: Been using one of these in my desktop for well over 4 1/2 years now. I use it as a combination media storage and gaming drive. It's held up well over the years with hundreds of GB of data moving back and forth, though it's finally starting to show its age.

Cons: After a few years of heavy use, performance has dropped. The drive takes 3-10 seconds to spin back up if I haven't used it in a while, and sporadically stops working at all, disappearing in My Computer. Sometimes only a reset gets it to appear again.

Other Thoughts: I guess it's held up well for what I've put it through, though it was never a hot rod of performance to begin with.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going..

Pros: Bought this wanting reliability, got it. Doesn't use much power, the case fans make a lot more noise.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Want a good drive, get this. Screw the retail versions, I've had past use of 80 gig drives that turned me off going to the store and getting one except for some newer external drives.

5 out of 5 eggsfast drive, long warranty

Pros: Good solid-feeling drive. Made with a heavier case than cheaper Seagate models. Transfer speeds are nearly as good as one of them killer dinosaur drives. I got avg 130 MB/s read speeds, and 95-100 MB/s write speeds. Quiet operation.
.....5 year warranty.....

Cons: no problems so far... 1 con would be that it's not cheap

Other Thoughts: I wanted a fast drive, and the benchmarks tell me that this drive is fast, but I can't tell much difference when using it. It's not an SSD, but you can't get anywhere near the GB's per dollar with an SSD that you get with rotational media. I felt that it was the pest price/performance blend I could get.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Surveillance DVR Drive

Pros: I've used several of these in Surveillance DVR set-ups. This is usually very demanding on a hard drive. This one went into a Linux based dedicated DVR. Recognized, formatted and started recording. No problem. Quiet operation. No heat problem.

Cons: I've occasionally wished they came with a molex power connector.

Other Thoughts: I've been getting over 5 years out of Seagate's Enterprise drives.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drives

Pros: I have used several of these drives in SuperMicro barebones servers. No failures yet.

Cons: A little on the expensive side, but that's to be expected on an "enterprise class" SATA drive.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet, reliable for

Pros: Quieter than my Seagate Barracuda ES ST3750640NS 750GB hdd from 2007 ( ST3750640NS ). I had to buy rubber mounts for that drive and stick it in a 3.5" bay. The Constellation vibrates much less whether its seeking or writing.

Cons: Expense that comes with enterprise level hardware.

Other Thoughts: I'll try to update on this drive's reliability as time goes on. Initial surface check with Win7 scandisk shows no bad sectors.

UPDATE: Been running practically 24/7 since end of July 2010 as I rarely turn off my computer. No problems. I think I'll get another. Hopefully it won't be a lemon like some of the reviewers relate.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Price, storage size and five year warranty.

Cons: Dead on arrival and that just frustrates me to no end. I own a PC repair shop and this was for a client in need of his PC. Now I have to wait and get a exchange. I will not be getting this same unit!

Other Thoughts: Seems that being OEM, there would be an easy way to test this drive before shipping out.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality or Clumsiness?

Pros: Quiet. Priced well. Hopefully Seagate name.

Cons: The eSata connection tab broke when I was pushing the drive rack back into place. Metal prongs all bent up at 45degree angle. Never had this problem with any other drive and I am not a terribly rough person. Bent pins down and electrical taped cable in place as I needed drive and it has worked flawlessly since. Not saying. Just saying.
