5 out of 5 eggs Great storage drive for my games 12/11/2013

This review is from: Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST3000NM0033 3 TB 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros:

Read and write average about 178MB per Crystal Disk benchmarks. Excellent warranty. Great US based customer support.

Cons:

Must switch to IDE mode in Bio's to use their SeaTools in DOS to check drive. Also windows version of SeaTools will cause BSOD if your in ahci mode.

Other Thoughts:

I had a 512Gb SSD for my Steam games and ran of space. I read that there was an advantage to use a SSD for your game drive and so I was reluctant to switch back to HDD. Well I have seen no difference in the loading of open ended environments or respawn speed. Games feel as snappy as before. I'm glad I switched and happy with it.
