2 out of 5 eggsWasn't worth my time

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST250DM000 250GB 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It was decent.

Cons: (see "Other thoughts")

Other Thoughts: Shortly after finding this, my friend needed an HDD and I was going to tell him to get this one, but I found out for cheaper I could've gotten told him to get a 500gb WD HDD, so that's what I did.

About ~10 months or so in the my drive died while his kept working. I just sent mine in. I didn't complain since I know these things can happen.

I got it back and it worked fine. About another ~10 months go by and it died again. Lost my data, again. My friend's drive still works.

I feel like this was just a waste of my money.

I'm buying a new drive. From WD.

3 out of 5 eggsWhen They Works They Seem Okay

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST250DM000 250GB 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I got two of these and when they work they seem to work okay.

Cons: When I got these one of them was DOA. The motor on it wouldn't even come on the harddrive just kept making a weird sound like a beep or something also it was not recognized by the BIOS/CMOS at all. The second harddrive occasionally had the same problem, but it was intermittent meaning the problem came and went away sometimes. It was recognized by the BIOS/CMOS sometimes. Got both RMA'd and got back two working drives, however, the new drives after getting everything installed on them make a scratchy sound like I've been using them for years when actually I've only had them a few days. But as long as they work I'll live with it.

Other Thoughts: When you buy these I would hook them up outside the case first to see if they even power on or you will just be having to take them out of the case if they don't just like I had to. The new ones I tested before putting in my case and they both came on and were recognized in the BIOS/CMOS just fine. It's just the scratchy sound that's a little concerning and annoying. Again as long as they work I'll live with it. I RMA'd the two bad ones which took a week to send to Newegg and they were very fast getting the new ones back to me. They process in one day and shipped them overnight Fedex.

Pros: Hard drive installed without much hassle into an old IBM 8143wgu. New Egg's price was better than eBxx's with free shipping and New Egg's outstanding quality in its products and delivery. When in a pinch, chose New Egg over eBxx!! Semper Fi New Egg!!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggssolid drive

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST250DM000 250GB 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great drive, very quiet and is very quick (see other thoughts on its speed)

Cons: a little pricey considering for just a wee bit more money you can get the ST1000DM003 with 64 cache and 1TB.

Other Thoughts: Got this to replace a dead drive in a machine with only sata II. Obviously because this drive is sata III, speed is superb. I like seagate drives and very rarely have ever had a issue. This is a great drive if on a budget or upgrading a older machine. I would go with the ST1000DM003 if building a new computer
