The NL35 Series 500GB nearline-ready SATA drive goes beyond desktop-class disc drives to address the unique needs of nearline applications with higher reliability and smoother integration into multi-disc nearline applications.
Noisy, both failed
This review is from: Seagate NL35 ST3500641NS 500GB 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: When it works, it works like a drive should.
Cons: Both units (purchased refurbished) had to be RMA'd within 60 days. SeaTools could not find the source of the failures either time.
Other Thoughts: I would advise against purchasing refurbished, even if that means re-certified. Whatever certification process these went through didn't catch the problems.
