Cons: after 6 months started to make some noise , was running hot , at 11 months it seized started making a high pitched whine , could not read any data on the disc , disc no longer recognized , over 2 tb of lost data . Not the seagate of old , still have some 10 year old Seagate drives running , seagate drives from the last 2 years have 3 dead out of 6
Other Thoughts: Seagate is no longer my go to hard drive , quality has gone down . Hope my seagate constellation srives last longer than these SV35 drives .READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works with my comps PSU (620 watt Antec) , about 15 minutes of runtime before it shuts down , no problems so far . Front panel has plenty of info , lots of plug space out back , .
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: With an SSD and frequent brownouts and power failures this is needed , not an option . Lost 2 SSD because power went out and comp shut down . Cheap insurance .READ FULL REVIEW
