I love Seagate's Hard Drives but!
The description is for a 2.5". This is 3". I was looking at this for using it for my PS3 but it would not fit. Thankfully, I have a desktop computer because it's also too big to fit a laptop. It does run great... It's super quiet.. But it's not what you're looking for if you want something that's 2.5".
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:
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.:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 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.
I've bought 5 of these and 2 have gone bad. The first one started having problems; the other just quit. Thank goodness for RAID 1. In each case I just dropped in a replacement and it rebuilt the new one. At this price I keep a spare just in case.
If your data is important, back it up often.
The box pictured clearly lists this as an INTERNAL SATA 3.5 inch hard drive. All one needs to do is click on the photo to get an enlarged picture in a separate box. (Window, that is) The previous poster/reviewer mentioned that s/he was disappointed that they felt mislead as to what they were actually buying.
I have bought and use several SEAGATE hard drives from Walmart, and have never once regretted anything but not buying more when some were clearanced out! The included disk of software for setting up the drive is excellent, with one exception: The "Seatools" must first be burned to cd as an ISO, and even then, dosen't work, will only hang. Do not use it. But the partitioning and formatting portion of the cd are GREAT!
Was a birthday present for my boyfriend. Very easy installation and wow does his PC run faster now. He is very please.
Drive worked exactly as hoped/expected.
No driver/compatibility issues.
Up and running in a very short amount of time.
I'm very happy with the drive.
It's a new and clean hard drive, but its not partitioned yet so if you don't have the program to partition it then you need to get an external hard drive. If its not partitioned the the computer will not see it or anything, it not broken, just untouched, just partition it and it will be ready to run
Works perfect, excellent price!!! Thank you!!!!
Super easy to set up great value
I find it almost beyond belief that drives of this capacity are getting so dirt cheap !
and it's fast to !
the shipping was great, I order it regular mail but arrived faster than express mail. the only complaint is the software CD doesn't exist even thought it was stated on both website and the box; but I easily download it online.
I bought this to use as storage in my gaming PC. Seagate makes great hard drives, and I was not disappointed.
i bought it and it got to my house in 1 day.
its rily fast easy to install and works good.
This drive had the screws and wires that most harddrive companies won't include anymore these days. I didn't need to buy an extra wire kit afterall, but it's good to have some extras of those wires as they are not always easy to come by.
If you want a 1 TB drive that comes with everything to get you set up right away, this is the HDD you're looking for!
I'm unsure how to get my drive to give all its space- I only got 931 GBs, maybe the rest is needed for the drive itself? Does anyone know? I formatted it, but still it's that lower number. Hope someone can help on this.
EZ to format; PC recognized it right off. I have it hooked to an external USB SATA port. The access time can be a little 'clunky' but it runs FAST once activated. I use it for storing movies and PC backup.... great drive and very well built.... like a tank.
It is the best price I could find and it is very quite.
Outstanding product. I have it in an external USB case and it is super quiet. Quick access time.
Much easier to use with included software than western digital which has no installation software
