Best Consumer Grade Drive!10/27/2010
While I typically only buy Enterprise grade drives, in a pinch I bought a couple of these some time back. I just pulled that server to re-purpose it and found that the hotswap bays these were mounted in had their fans fail and continue to generate heat. The fan housing sitting directly below the drive literally melted into the hotswap tray, sticking the entire assembly in the server. Both of the Seagate drives mounted in there were humming along nicely without a care in the world - I ran full low level tests on them with the Seagate diagnostics software and they test perfectly fine. On that same note, every WD drive I've ever owned has failed in-warranty. I'll never buy anything but Seagate again.
Good Product at a Great Price3/28/2009
It does get noisy when the drive is accessed. I am using this as a secondary hard drive. And don't forget to order SATA DATA/POWER Cable if you don't have one as they don't come with this product.
WOW welcome to 19893/12/2009
This hard drive comes with no install software and is EXTREMELY LOUD! I have had quieter drives back in the early 90's
Just a little noisy sometimes.2/7/2009
Great price. The only thing is that sometimes I hear that cracking noise when there a lot of activity going on in the hard drive. As long as you keep the PC well closed, you won't notice it too much.
Buy.com had an excellent price on this excellent (although somewhat noisy) drive, but beware. No where in the description does it mention that this is an OEM drive. Had I known that I would have bought a cable and screws when I ordered it.
Good Overall Performance but noisy5/26/2008
I like this drive overall. It seems to function well and has good speed. One con is that it is quite a bit noisier than my older 160GB Seagate drive. The sound isn't horrible or excessive mind you, but you can plainly hear it writing and reading to the disk. It is the loudest part of an other wise quiet system.
It just works11/2/2006
This drive went into a new mac pro. Installation was effortless and setup was quick and painless. It just works. The experience with Buy.com was, as always, flawless.
Works well. You will need to pull the default jumper as shipped to get 300MBps rather than 150MBps. Also make sure you order a SATA cable as this is a bare drive.
