5 out of 5 eggsGreat Hard Drive

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Nice, quite, and long lasting drive. I have had this hdd for almost 3 years and it has not failed me or caused any other problems whatsoever. It was also relatively cheap at the time I bought it.

Cons: Now it is about the same price as a 1TB hdd of the same line.

4 out of 5 eggsSeagate Barracuda 500GB hard drive

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The Seagate hard drive is a good hard drive and will work fine but I am not familiar with some of the other items he has listed or their specs so can`t tell if they are compatible. If he is just a beginner then he should try building a computer from one of Neweggs bundles since they are matched and will install with no problems.

Cons: the pro statement contains the cons, unfamiliar with some of his items.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Very impressed with the performance as compared to my previous WD500 hard drive. I'm accustomed to a spinning sound like most drives but this puppy is extremely quiet.

Cons: n/a

4 out of 5 eggsWorks!

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The drive works as advertised.

Cons: Would have been nice if the drive came with instructions and/or software. I had to figure out how to initialize the new hard drive using Windows 8.1.

The price of this 500 GB hard drive is about the same as a 1 TB hard drive.

Other Thoughts: None.

5 out of 5 eggsStill rock solid after 5 years

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive can really take a beating.

Cons: Not a single thing that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I bought a pair of these drives 5 years ago for a mirrored RAID pair. I have beat them up with gaming, software stress testing, SQL Server workloads, making and breaking mirrors (sometime multiple times per day) and all while kids were randomly unplugging my computer from time to time.

I just sold the computer yesterday, but the disks were still doing their job when it when out the door.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning fine after ~3 years of every day use.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -no problems after three years of 8+ hour gaming sessions nearly every day in a warm weather area.

Cons: -500 GB is a small amount of storage.

Other Thoughts: I keep my reviews very simple. It's been nearly three years since I purchased it (January 2012 was the purchase date, the date of this review is October 2014).

In that time, I've used my computer every single day for often more than 8 hour days with little to no interruptions. I'm a hardcore gamer so I push my rig to the max every day during long game sessions. I also live in Florida on the second story, so my room heats up very quickly. My PC is properly cooled, but still gets warmer inside my PC than it would if I lived in a cooler climate area.

Despite this heavy abuse, the hard drive is still working fine. As such, I've given it 5 eggs. If something works under the conditions I put it in for nearly three years, then I have no problems with it. I won't deduct eggs for the limited storage space because you know what you're paying for when you buy it.

4 out of 5 eggsNo problems

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Work great so far without any problems what so ever! Good price too

Cons: Not exactly a high end drive at only 7200rpm, but I don't need 15k RPM drives either

Other Thoughts: Took a star off since it wasn't "the best in the world" type of drive, not due to any satisfaction problems.
