Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice price to storage ratio
Stores plenty of files without reaching it's limit

Cons: S.M.A.R.T. tested it recently and it seems to be in pre-fail state already and signs of old age as well even though it is only about 4 months old and has only been on just under 30 days of use.

Other Thoughts: Because of the price I just picked up another one at another store for the same price and hoping to transfer the data over to the new drive. Not giving up on the brand becsasue of just one bad egg.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Model I own: SV300S3B7A
SSD for one and 0.2ms acess times
faster than my 7200rpm WD HD
Works with Linux fine though you have to get trim activated

Cons: It is slower than what is advertised on avg I am getting read times of 282.4 on 3 individual tests
No mac/linux support for their frimware update program wish there was a non-os dependent upgrade path

Other Thoughts: Even though it is slower than what is there looking at benchmarks for HDDs i still is faster than most if not all HDDs
