2 TB Barracuda works fine 06/01/2013
The prices were good, so after trying one out for a while, I purchased 7 more of them as the needs required. They work pretty good and seem to be reliable. I have Linux, Windows XP and Windows 8 installed in one computer, each installed on a different drive, and Windows 7 and Suse Linux installed on separate drives on another. I also have three installed in an ICY Dock for backups.
One computer I built was for playing games in 3D. I used a 6 core CPU, and SLI'd a couple Nvidia GTX 580s. My performance score was 5.9. That was the score for the hard drives, and also the lowest score. The computer can keep up with anything you can throw at it, so I don't really consider the drives being to slow. I think that the only thing that could make the score higher would be a solid state drive, but they still don't have the capacity I would require. All my games play in 3D, even the older ones.
