The SATA-150 interface, 8MB cache and 5400RPM combine to get an 11.0ms random read seek time. It does this while only drawing 2.0 watts to extend battery life.

This drive is ideal for notebooks, external storage devices, Tablet PCs, printers and copiers, and non-mission critical blade servers.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate is with Davy Jones

Pros: it looks like a 2.5 drive,

Cons: expensive paper weight, crashed within the first hour of use. clicking noise and beeping noise coming from the external case. Heat is barely noticeable. I wish it was DOA so I could have not transferred data in the first place.

Other Thoughts: toshiba's are solid as well as maxtor's imho

1 out of 5 eggsProne to failure

Pros: It's a very quiet drive with almost no vibration or heat.

Cons: First one failed within a month with the grinding and click of death. The disk tools provided by seagate on their website also crashed when scanning the drive from all the bad sectors. Smart logs were filled with a whole array of errors. Second one is failing within 2 months with similar problems.

Other Thoughts: Here I thought the current hard style drives we use were a proven technology, cheaper and larger than solid state with a good reliability record. Thank you seagate for proving me wrong.

2 out of 5 eggsNot Cutting It.

Pros: Quiet with adequate capacity and functional speed for many applications. The warrantee is honored in a fair and acceptable manner.

Cons: 1. My first one burned out in less than 3 months. The replacement lasted a little over a year.
2. No fast enough to stream higher quality video types without burps and hiccups.

Other Thoughts: Please understand that this drive came WITH my laptop- I did not get it from Newegg. I travel LOTS with my laptop, so it's got a lot of mileage and has reen many places. Wonderful machine...except for this. This review I'm doing FYI about this model. I RMA'd the first one- but the now-dying replacement I'm not going to bother to do the same and try something else with more size and speed. SeaTools is indicating the exact same failures on the second as the first.
I'm hoping for a better hard drive but, to be fair, I'm pretty hard on them as well. I'm really looking forward to SSDs to storm this market with decent sizes and reasonable prices.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

Pros: Great response, it keeps cool, and it uses less energy.

Cons: Well, the only bad thing about it. It makes this very faint noise. However, you must be in a very very quiet place to notice it.

Other Thoughts: It's been a little over a month since i got this Seagate hd. So far, everything is working great! I haven't lost any data or have experience any other tech problems. It was very easy to install and configure. Well, i just poped the recovery disc and that was it. i would really really recommend this Seagate.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgraded from 40gb PS3

Pros: Works Perfect on my 40gb PS3. Formats to 149gb of usable space on the PS3. If you are looking to upgrade your PS3 hard drive and not sure what is compatible with it, this is one of them!

Cons: Non whatsoever, I've always used Seagate drives in the past. And have never had any issues with one.

Other Thoughts: Some might want a 7200 rpm drive. But the speed increase is minimal for data transfer rates. Not to mention they will make your system run slightly hotter. I decided to use the 5400 rpm model to keep temps as low as possible.

Pros: Great drive with lots of space!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: HP wanted me to pay 200$ for the 80GB version of this. They told me that i couldnt find a lower price. I laughed, went to newegg and saved myself 120$.
