Worked excellent while it lasted, was fast and easy to install windows 7 64 on
One minor earthquake killed it. The quake was barely big enough to rock the shocks on my car on my way home from a funeral. It merely felt like a little pothole on all four tires at once. I come home and find it dead. Luckily it was still under warenty so I sent it back. I dont think they liked the box I sent it back in. I went to my local computer shop and got a WD box. Lucky for me I had thoughtfully bought an auto backup drive with software so it wasn't as catastrophic as it could have been. Then I installed Windows on a little rinky dink 80 gig IDO that I had and waited.
After two days I was looking online and saw the Western Digital black drive on what rhymes with Guest Guy for $100. I did some research and found it was a very good little 1tb drive so I immediately bought it. Never had a problem since. When the replacement came back I turned it onto a storage drive.
Does not seem to make a good OS drive. It would sometimes pause as if it was busy thinking once I accessed the drive. It was the head resting. I know now that there is a tool that would disable that but I still prefer WD black over this brand. Seagate seems to be only good as backup drives and portables. Never again will I have a Seagate as the home OS drive.
