Pros: It seemed like it would fit nicely into my new build's budget.
Cons: After I installed this hard drive and downloaded Windows 8 to it and left the computer running for an hour. I came back to find that the computer had reset and that the motherboard could not detect the hard drive. I tried everything, different sata ports, changing out the cables, and testing it inside another computer. Nothing. I could hear the disk spinning and each time it booted up I heard 2 beeps/clicks come from it.
I am never buying a Seagate again.
Other Thoughts: After some more research I found that Seagate makes some of the most UNRELIABLE hard drives on the market. Try a WD or a Hitachi hard drive and get a good SSD because your taking a huge chance buying this thing. Some people report that it died within a few months or that it was dead on arrival. I'm getting my money back, but I'll never get the time I spent trying to troubleshoot this and they major delays on my new build and selling off my old computer. I'll also have to spend more on a good hard drive and SSD combo.READ FULL REVIEW
