Not worth it. 10/19/2013
Well Seagate used to be really good.
The first one of these took data with it when it died. I sent it in for data recovery, and the heads scraped a part of the plater that removed all chance of any recovery.
Seagate didn't want to honor any warrantee. First it was that a qualified operation had the nerve to open the drive. Then since new egg sold me the drive it "had no warrantee." Then did replace the defective drive, and sent me a "cert repaired" replacement.
Today it failed. What is the problem? The clicking sound that the first one had.
I might be forced to go back to IBM drives like I used with SCSI. They are noisy, and expensive. (HGST I think they are called now) My old SCSI drives from IBM are still functional. More than I can say for two of Seagate's drives.
