            Comments about Seagate STBD2000101 2TB Internal Barracuda 3.5" SATA HDD:

            I ordered this 2TB Seagate hard drive at the beginning of August 2013. It is now approaching the end of the month, and the drive was installed in my 2 year old Dell Studio XPS 8100 to replace the original Seagate 1 TB HD, since disk space was getting cramped with many photos, videos and music files. The original 1 TB is now in the second bay and used for backup of data, along with an external 2TB LaCie unit.

            I decided to order the entire Seagate Kit with cabling for the internal power supply cord and SATA connections, and used Acronis software to 'clone' the original drive to the new one (Windows 7 Pro 64Bit). The operation went smoothly, and so far the new drive is working 'silently' in the background, and is slightly peppier than the smaller old drive.

            I decided to buy my Seagate from B&H, namely because of past many years experience with them, and in reading how some of the other 'well known' computer parts distributors have sent these and other HD's with scantly padded or no padded packaging, only to have the HD's DIE in short order or being DOA !

            I can unequivocally state that anything and everything I have ordered in the past including this Seagate came exceptionally WELL PACKED and in perfect unharmed condition, a credit to their dedication to the customer. Thanks B&H !!

            Hopefully this new HD will continue to work along with the original from Dell for the long haul, without complications.

            Thank You Seagate Technology!

                        Comments about Seagate STBD2000101 2TB Internal Barracuda 3.5" SATA HDD:

                        I've been this HD for 2 1/2 months externally in an OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro enclosure. It's super quiet and super HUGE. I use it for digital audio, streaming large sample libraries from disk, in other words, I beat it up...a lot. One thing, although the listing says this is Seagate's STBD2000101 drive. When you actually look at the label, it says ST2000DM001. From what I've been able to determine, this is a good thing as the ST2000DM001, according to Anandtech is one of the newer, better 1TB per platter hard drives. One more thing, the drive seems to run hot whether it's in use or not. I don't know if this is the result of the fanless aluminium enclosure dissipating the heat away from the drive (good thing) or if the drive is cooking away in there (bad thing).I was a little nervous after reading reviews here and elsewhere. But I've had a zillion hard drives, all reputable manufacturers, some, against all odds, work great (still are) and some, against all odds, fail. As long as this one keeps working, I'll be happy...

                            Comments about Seagate STBD2000101 2TB Internal Barracuda 3.5" SATA HDD:

                            I have two of these drives in my custom Windows 7 build using an Intel Quad Core 6600 processor. I have the boot drive coupled with a Crucial Adrenaline 50 GB Solid State Cache drive. This combination seems very speedy, though I'm limited to Sata 3.0 Gbps (SATA II) by my Intel D975XBX2 motherboard. I'm pretty sure this a Sata 6.0 Gbps(SATA III) drive. With a spindle speed of 7200 RPM and a buffer of 64MB, the only other mainstream drives that would vastly outperform it would be the Western Digital Velociraptor 10000 RPM drives which currently only go to 600GB capacity and are far more expensive per GB. You only pay a little more for this drive vs a lower performance "green drive" at 5900 RPM.This drive gives you the flexibility to operate as a high performance boot drive or a less accessed data drive.Time will tell about their reliability, but if they do fail, these retail drives have a 1 year warranty. BH has a great deal on these drives now. Buy a couple of these today, before their's another global disaster affecting hard drive production.
