tomorrow's garbage 11/25/2010
NOT RELIABLE -- these drives frequently die.
I have owned six ST3250410AS drives which are the previous "version" of this drive and 5 out of those six have failed within a month to a year. I used to use raid 0 with two of these drives and I would get volume errors eventually.. I also use them as back up drives because its a good amount of space for general files and documents. However I notice a trend in these drives: as you fill them up (around half) they like to stop functioning. I had about 90gb of files in one and it just now stopped working. Windows 7 doesnt see it and the pc takes forever to boot up because its trying to detect the drive.
As far as I'm concerned, Seagate drives are absolute garbage.
If you buy this drive, I guarantee you it will die within the year.
