Bad Drive, Great Warranty 6/18/2008 9:37:24 AM

Pros: Bad hard drive, but great warranty service. Seagate is shipping me a new hard drive in advance for $19.99. I could have opted to pay nothing, but then I would have to ship them the hard drive before they shipped the new one. Paying the $19.99 made sense because I get the new drive in 1-2 business days.

Cons: The hard drive took a turn for the worse within 14 days of having it installed, within 26 days of receiving it from Newegg.

I ordered the item 32 days ago, received it 28 days ago, but since Newegg only covers the product for 30 days from the *invoice* date, I had to contact the manufacturer for the warranty claim.

I guess I don't have any problem with Newegg, you have to define a date when something starts and ends otherwise you just have people taking advantage of how to interpret a claim period. I'll keep buying from newegg for sure.

Overall Review: Hard drive worked great for a couple weeks. Then all of a sudden it froze one day and I had to reboot it. This caused it to slip into chkdsk. Chkdsk turned out to be fine.

One week later it froze again, came up with "unmountable_boot_disk" errors. Booted up in XP Recovery console to run a chkdsk and got dozens of unreadable sectors.

It is a shame. This hard drive replaced an existing Seagate drive that was also unreliable. Oh well, third time is the charm. I've always thought Seagate was known for a quality product. However, they manufacture a lot more than the measily two items I've owned.

Fast Drive 6/15/2008 10:10:59 AM

Pros: Fast, Quiet.

Cons: Adds little bit heat to the system.

Overall Review: This drive replaced the factory 5400 RPM 120 GB Drive on my Acer notebook. I am running XP and Vista on my machine. The performance on Vista is significantly faster. Vista is more responsive than it used to be. I can't really tell the difference on XP but the system boot time has definitely shortened. This drive is quieter than the drive it replaced but it adds little more heat to the system. Overall, a very good buy.

Good Laptop Upgrade 6/11/2008 10:52:01 AM

Pros: Fast, quiet, and reliable

Cons: More expensive price per GB than slower 5400 RPM drives.

Overall Review: This made a huge difference in boot times for my MacBook Pro, which had a 5400 RPM drive (this one is 7200 RPMs). The 160 GB size is also very nice. I've been using it now for 6 months with no hiccups.

Great performance (but mine died) 5/14/2008 2:54:19 PM

Pros: Great performance for its class. Fairly quiet. No noticeable heat issues. For kicks, I ran X-Bench on it, before and after, resulting in a good 25-30 point jump (can't remember exactly).

Cons: Mine died within 6 months. (Used in a MacBook) I never dropped this laptop once. Most of the time it sits on a desk w/ external K/V/M setup.

Overall Review: Just remember, like CPUs, they stress test these things at the factory, and classify them as such. Plain OEM models (like this) are near the bottom of the barrel.
