Quiet and pretty speedy. 02/05/2014
Included MLC flash supposedly would make it speedy for accessing frequently used data; fairly quiet.
None so far. Not 5-year warranty.
I use this as the data drive, so cannot comment on its comparison to a real SSD. From online forum/website's testing, this is probably the one of the quietest 7200rpm drive out there.
I am a bit hesitant on its 3-year warranty and also reported reliability issue with Seagate. I am not a heavy buyer/user, but I have owned Seagate and WD drives in the past few years and so far all of them are still working fine. I did a whole-drive scan and every sector seems fine; will update later with torture tests. The only consumer-grade drive that has 5-year warranty is the WD Black, which apparently is louder and not necessarily faster. Data on this will go to backup NAS anyway.
