Pros: its fast - when it works
Cons: failed after a couple of weeks. mbr kept getting corrupted and it wouldn't boot and windows didn't recognize it. reloaded windows 10 and all my software twice and it did the same thing. it would work for a week or so then it would get an mbr error and windows wouldn't load. the bootrec mbr repair function in windows couldn't fix it either.
Other Thoughts: i would not recommend this drive to anyone and would not purchase it again. the nand drive routine that moves data around apparently corrupts the boot sector and quickly makes the drive unusable. it isn't worth the risk of buying.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate ST1000LM014 1TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5" Laptop SSHD Bare Drive
Pros: Fast when it word
Cons: after a few weeks i got an mbr 3 error. before i could get around to fixing it the drive stopped recognizing windows and would not boot. i then reloaded windows 10 on it, ran it for another couple of weeks, and got the same mbr 3 error and then the drive again wouldn't recognize windows and wouldn't boot. i can only assume that the nand flash ram was bad and it kept corrupting the mbr. just going to trash it and either get an ssd or a 7200 drive. it took me forever to load all my programs to the momentus st TWICE and in the end all I got was a hard drive that wouldn't boot. save up your money and get an SSD. Even a fast regular hard drive would be better since it is far more reliable. Don't waste it on this. its a great idea but it isn't reliable. it ended up being a total waste of time and money.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else because it is so unreliable. seagate should make sure it actually works before selling it to the public. it has been my worst hard drive purchase ever.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: works well and doesn't break the bank. they are also fairly quiet. i have two running in my case bracketing my gtx 660 video card and i don't notice any additional noise.
Cons: doesn't make jello
Other Thoughts: for $5 you can't go wrong. good for putting around video cards to eliminate potential heat sources and providing good case airflow.READ FULL REVIEW
