Excelent SATA drive

Customer review by ssinec

5.0 stars by ssinec

This drive is extremely quiet and has a very quick data access time. The transfer speeds are significantly faster than the old IDE drive which was originally included in my eMachine. For a 1TB drive for about $100 this is an excellent purchase for the price.

This HD is one of two installed in my PC. It is quieeeet. Its value made me buy it because I know Seagate's quality, albeit being made in Thailand. This may be the reason for the low price. So far it is working fine and, if you need space to store your priced files -photos, music, etc -you found one of the best HD in the market

My laptop finally packed up on me and for the longest time I have been wanting to build my own PC again (It's been years since I built my last one) I wanted to cash out on performance to handle business elements and for gaming. I chose this hard drive for the price and the size, I am always apprehensive purchasing from "Seagate" as I have had a bad experience with one of their harddrives in the past, however so far so good. The only down fall, as to be expected, is it brings my new computers "Windows Experience" down to 5.9 (psht) All in all, great buy for my uses. For anyone curious, this is what I used to build my new rig: THIS ASUS MOTHERBOARD: SEAGATE 1TB SATA3 HDD: EVGA GEFORCE GT640 4GB DDR3 GRAPHICS CARD: INTEL i3 dual processor 3220-3.3ghz: Thermaltake case: Kingston 8gb DDR3 RAM: I also purchased a new CPU fan from NEWEGG, on maximum processor it has my Motherboard down to 24 and my cpu temperature down to 25 degrees.: currently it's $19.99 with a $10.00 rebate card. (GREAT FAN!) As far as the case goes, I attached 4 additional fans using 4 pin connectors so I can monitor them in the system bios. Everything is working great. Bottom line: For the $ amount, I made a great choice.

  • Short answer is: Probably. It depends on if you have SATA ports or an add-in card for SATA drives. I do not know every brand's naming and numbering system. But, if the old drive was SATA, and this one is, then yes. And it won't matter if the old drive was SATA 1.5 or 300, all SATA drives are backwards compatible, though you won't get any extra speed out of it, other than if the RPM's of new drive are significantly faster. (Quite possible) In the real world, older SATA (1.5) and newer SATA 300 are hard to tell apart when working. Even the newest SATA 600 (Same is true of the soon to come SATA 1200) The number's I'm using, by the way, refer to the theoretical throughput, 1.5 being 150 MB/sec, barely faster than the best PATA, [better known as IDE] drives it replaced, which ran at 133 MB/sec. It is almost impossible to tell them apart (when used as a replacement drive), while running applications. You might see some improvement due to other factors. Such as spindle speed, (RPM's) and the amount of on board cache. RPM will have more impact on speed than any other single factor. Period. The throughput of data has much less to do with the SATA revision number (150 aka 1.5, vs 300, 600, etc) than other things, like the chipset on motherboard, amount of RAM, and other considerations, such as the OS. (64 bit vs 32 bit, etc) In short, if one replaces an older SATA drive with a newer one, it WILL work, just don't expect to see any boost in speed, regardless of what the box says. If you do, it will be modest at best. SOME older chip-sets wouldn't take a drive of 1TB unless the drive was partitioned. This was often due more to the OS, though, than the chipset. If in has a built in SATA port, you should be fine. Some add-in cards on older computers could give you a headache, though. However, you stated your computer will take a 1tb drive, so that only leaves the OS. ANY version of WIN XP onwards, (and ANY NT operating system from Win 2000 with the latest service packs onwards) all will. I know nothing of Mac's or their OS, so I'll leave that to someone else. When in doubt, check the manufacturer's website. (Or maker of your motherboard/chipset. Some older BIOSes may need flashed) Hope that settles it for you. Personally, I'd use it without hesitation. The included SEAGATE software for setting up the disk has two parts: One part is an ISO for making a DOS-like boot disk. USE THIS!! (Or one of the dedicated software suites, like Paragon... the one I use is version 8.0) Forget the Windows setup, it does NOT work! This is a (well) known issue. Might be fixed under Win 7, but don't bet on it. Just make the boot disk, label it, use it, then put it away for later use. I've found a lot of these disk drives for CHEAP lately, no need to burn a new CD disk for each one. I like Seagate drives more than any other brand now. Western Digital used to be my top pick, and Maxstor close behind just because of price to size. (But more failures, the infamous Maxstor click!, see Utube) Seagate bought out Maxstor. I used to have a lot of those too. BTW, Seagate software will also work on(and with) a Maxstor drive. Once in a while, the software will complain it must see at least ONE Seagate drive to work, (like cloning) A Maxstor drive usually will do in a pinch. (Even an old one you do not plan to actually use)

  • According to this document: page 171 of 214 There is a graphic that shows a Serial ATA drive, so that would mean this drive WOULD work. The interface matches, so you are in good shape. Happy to help!
