Pros: This is the third computer it has been in. I don't really remember when I bought it.....(ironic....don't remember...memory device?). I am not a huge fan of seagate....the reason I bought this is that it was the only large platter available in SATAIII at the time (very shortly after SATAIII came out). I have backed this drive up many times, and even had one of the BUP drives fail ...and this one is still going.
Cons: I have had my share of SGs brick. Enough that I use desk stars and caviar blacks almost exclusively for platters. I tried that ssd/hdd hybrid SG...it's probably still alive somewhere...but it didn't impress me.
Other Thoughts: I currently have this drive in line with an SSD cache....and I don't know if it is just this drive or not.....but it has been a solid performer for 2 years or more?....and one of the few parts that made the move into the last 2 upgrades.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Cons: 1 memory channel didn't work at all....not 1 mem. slot, the entire a1, b1 channel (wouldn't post with a stick in either), It ran on a2, b2...I set up the drives then RMAed. Problem was that I had to get cables made for the PSU, so was past 30 days before I unboxed it. ASRock said to get RMA from NewEgg....even after the 30 days was up. I called them and they did it....NewEgg to the rescue.
Other Thoughts: I find it very hard to believe that an entire memory channel made it through ASRocks pre-shipping tests....and got messed up in the mail. OR........they need to find new, more effective testing methods. I am now 3 weeks behind schedule (1.5 due to PSU cables being late)...and have a client who I have been ducking calls from. The entire situation is beyond frustrating.READ FULL REVIEW
