Pros: I've had it about 4 months and it's working fine. The on-sale price with code is the most inexpensive option you'll find for a replacement 500gb drive....$45.

Cons: The DiscWizard software is junk. It will only work in a tight set of parameters. Forget about any help from support concerning the software. Support had me going in circles with conflicting advice from different techs.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive to replace an older drive in a laptop. I chose the Samsung because Seagate includes the transfer software DiscWizard, which is a version of Acronis. Long story kinda short, it is a mess. You cannot transfer to new drive on a laptop because it does not recognize the new drive through a USB port. Seagate's solution? Do some drive juggling. It still would not work. After a few days of this nonsense, I did a fresh OS install and copied the old drive to a folder to sort through as I have time.
