5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice 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: Quick
Quite
500GB More than enough for my computer

Cons: None - Currently

Other Thoughts: I decided after I had two My Books die on me that it was time to find another company for my storage needs and I have been very happy with this drive. the speed needed to startup my programs and access to resources. I will say I use a few externals for my main storage of files and backups as I try to keep my Tow clean(ish).

Anyways I would recommend this drive for anyone that likes speed and decent size for their system.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with zero issues

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

Pros: Drive works like a charm. Using it in 2 PC builds at the moment and zero issues so far.

500GB model so you don't get TONS of space but enough for what I do.

Cons: Nothing so far. The HDD works with zero issues. I couldn't be happier. Obviously a 10,000 rpm or SSD would be faster but... This one does what I need it to.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a drive to get your build going for a budget price, this one does the job nicely. No problems so far and I never shut the PC off. It's constantly running.

1 out of 5 eggsdoa

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

Pros: good sale price, good specs on paper

Cons: bought on sale and stored a couple of months until needed when old hdd (seagate) was getting noisy, too many errors. the newer seagate was doa. fortunately, i had another hdd on hand to clone. this was the first seagate i bought in several years--back to WD.

Other Thoughts: check hdd's when you get them. i shelved this one too long to return.

5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy, light.

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

Pros: It's light for an HTPC it was used in. As a storage drive it does what it needs to do. I will give Seagate the nod now.

Cons: 500gb, I personally have no use for a drive that draws this much power that's under a terabyte. My friend is happy with it. I am still not convinced that Seagate has totally gotten past their reliability and inconsistency issues, but I'll be watching the smart readings every now and then because after a huge loss of data ended up costing me years of music I'd made, I sort of got bitter with them.

Other Thoughts: Seagate has some offices in my city. I have no idea what is there. The parking lot is always full, but I never see anyone go in or out when I'm next door eating at a sports bar I like. I have never met anyone who works there nor have I been able to find any local information about it. It's there, looming, always catching my eye as if to say... go away... do not look at me...

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased to replace Seagate

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 although somewhat noisy. Formatted as MBR to run in a WHS v1. Replaced a failing Seagate 500BG.

Cons: I realize that this is an OEM drive, but I do expect all new drives to come sealed in a anti-static bag, and sealed is the operative word. This drive came in a anti-static bag with the ends folded over and a piece of white paper tape to hold it shut. There was no desiccant packet in with the drive. And the bag was not heat sealed.
