Comments: very quiet,and fast install works perfectly,and as always new eggs stellar service,and delivery is awesome.
Comments: I have been building systems for 12 years for profit and for fun. Seagate drives are not always the fastest, but they are very competitive and the most reliable brand that I've used.
Pros: I have had Seagate in the past and I have had good luck with them.
I still am a Seagate Fan and will buy in the future
Cons: this one unfortunately was DOA. ( do to shipping ) This is a 2nd HDD that I have gotten this way. NOT COOL.
Pros: i have purchased many of these drives with no problems and they have a great warranty.
also, great price and fast shipping...great job newegg
Pros: very quiet, NO clicking sound at all, unlike other brands of drives, very reliable. Plus, love th 5 yr warranty.
Overall Review: I have 3 of the exact same drive. One system, one to backup important data, and one to backup the system drive. The one that I use to backup the system, once backed up, I unplug it. The oldest drive that I have is about 3 yrs, and it's the system drive. I have used other brands of drives (no names mentioned, that have went out on me on numerous occasions). I'm, sticking with Seagate. Just DO NOT use Seagate's DiskWizard Starter Edition software (the version as of around March 25-2006) to format a drive for XP, because it WILL put Disk Manager on head 0 of the drive for the MBR (Master Boot Record), and if you have software (e.g. back up software like PowerQuest Drive Image/ Norton Ghost) that cannot run because of Disk Manager, there is really NO way of getting rid of Disk Manager within the MBR, except to use the same Seagate's software, but use the Utilities, Zero Drive Fill (Quick) feature to clear out the first 63 sectors of the drive, then format with Windows own format feature.
Pros: What can I say. Rock solid drive. More stable then my OS. 8-)
Actually have two that I've reformated so many times in my tinkering around that I'm suprised the MBR isn't toasted. But there still running.
Cons: They weren't SATA.
Pros: Quiet, fast, good price
Cons: None to think of
Pros: These drives are rock-solid, and it is the workhorse unit where I work. We have had over 100 of these in service for roughly two years, and none of them have failed. I also buy these drives at home. The 5-year warranty doesn't hurt either.
Cons: These drives run a little hot. Our cases at work have good airflow, but my machines at home do not. I use a combination of the I-STAR iStorm 8 Series HD cooler and fan-equipped external enclosures to keep them cool.
Overall Review: I've been burned (hard drive failure) with every other HD manufacturer. Seagate seems to be the way to go.
