works well, but a bit noisy 12/30/2013
No operational issues.
Good data transfer speed, good value for the money.
Vibrates when spinning; It is as if the platter is a bit off balance.
I have always had great success with Seagate drives.
This is installed as a storage drive, with an SSD boot drive. So much of the time, the drive is idle.
I mounted it on foam blocks to cut the low frequency hum.
We'll see whether the vibration affects longevity.
Mind you, I built a VERY quiet computer; I don't think most people would notice this sound.
