    Seagate ST3500641AS-RK reviews

    500GB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Drive is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install Works great! I use my HDD on a Gamer Desktop, for Graphics and Recording Music. The Seagate 500GB installed very easily and seems to be working fine at the proper speeds and reading writing. I had a Bad HDD going bad but it lasted long enough to do the Disk Copy. Works fine thus far. Pretty impressed all round with this product. Sale info said that Inside the Box would be cables - none at all, disappointed, had to buy a SATA Cable for a few dollars I thought I was saving. Once I had the cable things went fine. I rarely give out 5 stars as things can happen after the survey is done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast, Reliable This is an excellent drive, well-built, fast, and very reliable. I used one for a long time in my old G4 with an added SATA card, and it worked great. So, I got 2 more for my new Mac Pro and set them up as a RAID 1. A disc speed utility shows that the actual, in-use read/write data transfer speed is over 20MB/sec,more than adequate for DV or HDV. And the price is also great. (I have been using Seagate drives for years with not a single problem, but the 9GB SCSI Barracuda drive I bought years ago for my first nonlinear editing system cost almost $1000). Times change.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Drive This will be my second Seagate SATA. I currently use a 1.5TB and bought this one for my sons computer which I just built. Tried the others and found them seriously lacking, mainly in stability. When I told my son he would have 500GB, he said that is too much. I told him that was not what was important, knowing that the system uses the extra space. The speed of these drives is good and helps utilize the resources available. ... it worked great. Thank You FRH Jr.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match I added this drive to an HP Pavilion Elite d5200t ATX PC that is connected to my A/V system to store music and video, and the drive was an exact match to the drive that came installed in the machine. Plug and play with the SATA connection. Power cable was right where it needed to be. No problems whatsoever. Needed to be a very quiet drive, and it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best... I easily installed this disc in my PC, and I am not an expert. A fast format was sufficient to initiate to work with him. My PC does not have capacity for Serial ATA, so I bought a card PCI and the subject was solved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Drive Purchase A technician installed my new hard drive the other day and it is working very well. It is very quiet and runs smoothly. Hopefully, it will last longer than my first one, which was only two and a half years.
