Seagate 600 Series ST240HM000 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I really wanted to upgrade to a SSD; needless to say I was going crazy trying to get this to work properly. Then I decided to read the other recent reviews and realized it was time to tell Newegg to send me a new one. S.M.A.R.T. failure right off the bat, and nothing but issues trying to get BIOS to recognize the drive. Unlike a regular HDD that will give you a good 'ol click if it's bad, this is very difficult to tell. Especially when you buy it "brand new" you expect it to just work. Although I dislike Newegg for doing these "bad batch releases", I still won't go anywhere else because they resolve any problems so well. Will review the replacement drive, and hopefully this one works without issue!

Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Potential for a DOA

Other Thoughts: This is the 2nd drive after I returned the first to Newegg; I'm thankful that their customer service is the best (one of the main reasons I buy ALL my computer hardware from them). So far, no problems, and I'm fairly impressed with the new 7200rpm drives. I have an old 10,000 rpm that's not as fast as this drive, but it is REALLY old. I like Seagate, even though it is hit or miss if you get a working drive.

Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: HDDs are always tricky; Seagate is one of those hit or miss brands. Unfortunately, this one was DOA. i plugged it in and it did nothing but click. Luckily Newegg is the best, so they accepted the return with no problems!
