          Comments about Seagate 1TB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (7200 RPM):

          So far so good and it was simple to install. Even thought the product itself didn't come with any manuals, spec sheets, etc., it was a snap to install and get up and running. Also, it didn't come with the Seagate software that was advertised as included, may I need to download that from the manufacturer. In any case, I have had terrible luck with hard drives, and it doesn't seem to matter who makes them. They keep telling me solid-state is the way to go.

              I have over 15 of these drives in my operation. Single platter=high reliability IMHO.

              And I currently have over 100 Hard Drives of various makes and sizes purchased over the years. Seagate reliability has been the best in my operation. (Friends don't let friends buy WD :)

              If you need a drive. Just buy this and move on.

                  The hard drive in my Dell 620 (Seagate ST31000524AS) was failing ... causing slow operation and repeatedly throwing reports of disk errors, bad sectors, etc. despite my attempts at repair using a variety of programs. After finally getting a successful disk image from the original drive using Macrium Reflect, I swapped the drives and loaded the disk image onto this replacement. On restart my PC booted right up from this drive and it's been running like new since.

                  I purchased this as a backup drive for my 13in. MacBook Pro. I also bought a hard drive dock from OWC. I've got it connected via FireWire 800 and it's working great so far. No complaints here!

                    I can't really comment on the longevity but it works well in my voyager driver. I created two partitions to back up my children's Macmini--once as a sparse partition and the other as a disk image using Carbon Copy Cloner and both work well. I've only had it for less than a month though, but I've never had any issues with Barracuda Seagate drives.

                                      I'm using this as a secondary drive with a primary Adata SX900 64GB SSD + Avant 32GB SSD Windows slave/Pagefile drive. If you're not forking the dough out for a hybrid SSD drive, these 64MB Barracudas are the drives to grab for backup/storage/large programs/media.

                                      This drive sustains 160MB/s transfer from my SSD's and I can backup my entire SSD drive in just a few minutes. I may add another for RAID 0 in the future to see if I can approach my SSD's 400+MB/s read speeds.

                                      Latency isn't anything special though, so this drive is better used as an SSD companion versus an OS drive.

                                                  I purchased this drive a replacement for an older drive that simply failed. I'm using an old RedayNAS so there are lots of drives that don't work in the unit. This one worked as expected minus a slight hick-up on the first drive initialization. It came back failed. I simply removed and re-inserted the drive and the second time it was perfect. Could have been the unit or the drive, not sure, hence the 4 vs. 5 stars. However since that issue it's been working flawlessly.
