5 out of 5 eggsMost reliable drive I've ever used (almost)

Pros: Still working after 6 years (powered on 3.7 years)
No bad sectors yet
Big enough for me
Plenty fast

Cons: Only 160 GB
Not incredibly fast

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing so long that I can't even remember where I got it...
It gets absolutely tortured with swapping because I only have 1 GB of RAM, it has been not-so-gently installed and uninstalled from over 5 computers (probably over the maximum allowed shock) and yet it still works perfectly as if it was brand new. I still use it to this day as my main drive because it's the most reliable hard drive I've ever had. I don't know whether this is a pro or a con, but it's relatively quiet for its age, but noticeably louder than most modern drives. It's not as loud as one of those ancient Quantum Fireballs, thankfully.

As for the "(almost)" in the title, that's because one time, my cat landed on the platters of an open ST-157A-1 42 MB (yes, MB, not GB) drive, and it still worked...

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: This is a fantastic drive. I have been using Seagate drives for 10 years now, and have never been disappointed. It is fast, quiet, cheap, and easy to install. SATA 3.0Bb/s connectors rock. No more ribbon cables here!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Newegg sent me the wrong drive, but promptly provided me with RMA and refund, which i then got the correct drive. Newegg rocks!

5 out of 5 eggs<3 seagate

Pros: I've used several of their larger hard drives in the past and was extremely satisfied. This one's no different. It's quick, worked right away, not too expensive, and will undoubtedly be a solid performer over the years to come like my other drives.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: AOpen XC Cube MZ915-M
Celeron M 370 (1.5ghz)
2 x 512mb PQI Turbo DDR2 533
XFX 7300GS 256mb supporting 512mb
