Seagate FireCuda Gaming SSHD 500GB SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: None

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: I installed the Seagate ST500LX025 in my Acer laptop. I then attempted to restore from optical discs I made
and have used before the Acer to it's original factory fresh state. The restore failed with a cyclic
redundancy error. I tried again with the same result. OK, maybe the disks went bad, it happens. I have other
Acer restoration disks that I have also used before. I met with the same cyclic redundancy error.
BIOS confirmed that there was a HD drive in the laptop. My next scheme was to install an OS from DVD.
That failed with the notice that their was no drive to install an OS to. Finally, I used a USB to SATA
adapter just to see what's up. This connection allowed me to hear the drive which produced spindle noise and squeaks. Windows reported all the drivers had been installed yet the drive never appeared in explorer. While using Windows Disk Management to inspect - the app froze til I unplugged the Seagate ST500LX025.

No recommendation from me.
