Pros: $/GB is a pretty good value
Cons: Assuming this drive would last a while, I put all my personal stuff on it. It worked fine for literally 1 year and 2 days. Then one day it started making a clicking noise and the computer wouldnt even get to the BIOS splash. The drive would just make the same series of clicks over and over again and nothing would happen. Unplugged the drive, and viola, BIOS startup. Installed OS on another drive, and tried to get my data off the bad drive, no luck. Whenever its plugged in, the computer wont start up. When its not, its perfectly fine. I used to trust Seagate drives. Never again. Its curious it lasted just long enough to be out of warranty. Live and learn I guess but Seagate, you're never getting another red cent from me.
