4 out of 5 eggsgood for the price

Pros: runs quiet, and runs well, easy enough to install, good price for what you get

Pros: 68mbps benchmarked!
my older 7200.7 only benchmarked 54mbps, nice 14mbps increase!

Cons: none, for the amount the drive cost

Other Thoughts: i plan on a raid 0 array with some western digitals though... i need more speed!

3 out of 5 eggsgood if operational

Pros: good technical specifications and capacity

Cons: out of 4 drives only 1 still operational after fist day of use

Other Thoughts: Very low quality control of NEW drives at Seagate. However, refurbished Seagate drives never had any problems so they can control quality if needed. Buy refurbished drives first (if available) - they work without problems, have the same warranty and you have anyway about 75% chance to finish up with refurbished drives.

2 out of 5 eggsmessed up

Pros: huge, awesome looking HD

Cons: incredibly difficult to install xp on, absolute insanity!

Other Thoughts: after getting this yesterday, ive spent roughly 6 hours trying to install windows xp on this hd. from scrounging up floppies to slipstreaming sata drivers to a new install disk, nothing has worked as of yet! i even got that diskmaker thing from seagates website, and nothing works. i had more luck installing xp on mylast ide hard drive that was dead.

5 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: No issues yet with 4 of these in a RAID5 array on Linux 2.6.15.1 connected to a PROMISE SATA300 TX4 PCI SATA Controller Card. As a point of reference - this RAID currently supports up to 3 HDTV transport streams reading/writing simultaneously.

Cons: The fileserver closet is noticeably warmer (maybe 5 degrees) running 4 of these than the previous 3 Maxtors. This could be due to increased airflow added to prevent overheating within the case itself.
