This drive is a very good value. It is fast and quiet. The only complaint I have is that what you see in that picture is all you get (other than an anti-static bag of course.) You do NOT get so much as a mounting screw or basic instruction booklet for setting it up. The drive has a label on it that shows the jumper settings and is vaguely helpful in that respect, but there is zero information on how to initialize the drive once it's plugged in so the OS recognizes it. Forget about a cable, warrenty card, or anything else. Not even an actual Seagate box inside the plain brown box it was packed in for shipping. That being said, the information can be found on www.seagate.com quite easily so it isn't much of a detractor. I just wish drive manufacturers would include the screws to mount them in the machine. Now I have to make a special trip to buy some because I don't have any extras. (I mounted it temporarilly by stealing 2 screws from the other HD in the machine.) I did get it set up with a minimum of fuss, though explicit instructions would have given me a warm fuzzy feeling. I ran it through its paces and it accesses quickly and very quietly and overall I am very pleased with the new drive and satisfied that I received good value for my money.

-Bill Wire quote

The hard drive is a good value, be aware that the drive is all you get: no documentation what-so-ever comes with the drive. The decal on the front of the drive does show the drive's jumper options, which is all you really need. If you are comfortable with changing out computer components then the lack of documentation is irrelevant.

Very good

by cy on 10/3/2006

I always trusted seagate, this is the same, quite, fast, although couldn't talk about reliablity yet, since I only have had it less than a month, but I expect it will last long time. I bought it used in a external enclosure as a external disk. Not a problem, very easy. And with 5 year warranty, that means something. Read More
