Pros: Fast, reliable for the first 9 months.

Cons: Gathers heat rather inefficiently compared to my WD Raptor.

Other Thoughts: Well, this thing worked great for the first 9 months, and just suddenly died on me recently.

Comments: I bought this HD to replace my 40Gb Maxtor that failed (MAJOR upgrade). This is a beautiful hard drive! Just be sure to install all neccessary software to break the storage limit (if you must) and this thing is a beast!

3 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Worked quietly, fast, and reliably for about six months, then it started growing defects. Gotta love the five year warranty, and I'd still buy one again given the chance, but once I get this one replaced, I'm going to be keeping a close eye out for bad clusters.

Comments: Very good and quiet drive- Partitioned it as 138gb and 140gb drives for video and music data purposes. With discwizard it was easy to setup..Much easier than I thought it would be.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Comments: What can I say? Large capacity, very quiet even in a quiet room sitting close to the computer. Five year warranty is comforting. I store movies on this drive and it's hold a bunch. In all I have thirteen Seagate drive in various capacities (40to 300gb) and this by far was teh best deal for me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value, Tons of Space

Comments: 1st off my hats off to newegg again for the fastest shipping on the planet! This drive is a great deal for 300GB with a 5-year warranty at a great price. You can't ask for more. The drive itself replaced my secondary (slave) drive in my box. It was an IBM Deskstar 60GB. The software on the CD runs in Windows for a slave hookup and takes only seconds to partition and install. I've now got plenty of room to keep growing my mp3 and video collections. Great job on a super-quiet large capacity drive to Seagate and to newegg for getting it to me so fast and at such a great price.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

Comments: Like the title says. For the money, it's a half way decent drive. I really wanted large capacity, so I bought two. The real deal maker was the 5 year warranty.

Comments: I installed this about a year ago. It loads fast and is very quiet. I don't believe there is a better 300 gig drive out there. 5 year warranty is awesome.

3 out of 5 eggsToo Noisy for TiVo

Comments: I got one of these for my TiVo unit, now that the v7.1 TiVo software recognises huge drives. Although not really loud, you can hear it clickity-clacking away a whole lot more than the 120GB model. I've had good luck with Seagate and I like the 5 year warranty.
