As system drive, no problems so far

Pros: Works.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: It's a hard drive. It works, so far without fail. Using as system drive with Win10 for about 3 weeks.

Great drice, but more like 150GB

Pros: Great drive, owned my current one for a few years, now. I mostly use it to store iTunes (eventually, I'll need a bigger drive because 150GB (149Gb, really) isn't really enough, anymore) and will just use it to store various files, like pictures and older movies.

Cons: Not nearly 160GB, mine shows around 149GB. A little slow to spin up when pulling files from the drive (though, after it spins up, files come promptly).

Other Thoughts: This is an older drive. OK, if you just need to install something light, like a Linux distro or to hold a few, smaller, files, not really ideal for modern Windows systems because of size contraints.

Old HDD, but ours is still running.

Pros: Just keeps running.

Cons: Slow by today's standards.

Other Thoughts: I was thinking of replacing our old ST316 with something newer, but when checking the SMART info, it showed no errors what so ever. It now has 63,000 power on hours but we'll just keep good backups and worry about that when it dies.

Most reliable drive I've ever used (almost)

Pros: Still working after 6 years (powered on 3.7 years)
No bad sectors yet
Big enough for me
Plenty fast

Cons: Only 160 GB
Not incredibly fast

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing so long that I can't even remember where I got it...
It gets absolutely tortured with swapping because I only have 1 GB of RAM, it has been not-so-gently installed and uninstalled from over 5 computers (probably over the maximum allowed shock) and yet it still works perfectly as if it was brand new. I still use it to this day as my main drive because it's the most reliable hard drive I've ever had. I don't know whether this is a pro or a con, but it's relatively quiet for its age, but noticeably louder than most modern drives. It's not as loud as one of those ancient Quantum Fireballs, thankfully.

As for the "(almost)" in the title, that's because one time, my cat landed on the platters of an open ST-157A-1 42 MB (yes, MB, not GB) drive, and it still worked...

Love this drive

Pros: I have 2 of these drives, and am going to get a couple of more, the price can't be beat. I have them running at 3.0gbs with no problems. Seagate, what can I say!!!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I would recommend a Seagate hd to anyone looking for a hd. Very reliable!

Perfect

Pros: This is a fantastic drive. I have been using Seagate drives for 10 years now, and have never been disappointed. It is fast, quiet, cheap, and easy to install. SATA 3.0Bb/s connectors rock. No more ribbon cables here!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Newegg sent me the wrong drive, but promptly provided me with RMA and refund, which i then got the correct drive. Newegg rocks!

<3 seagate

Pros: I've used several of their larger hard drives in the past and was extremely satisfied. This one's no different. It's quick, worked right away, not too expensive, and will undoubtedly be a solid performer over the years to come like my other drives.

Cons: None.
