Experience: 7 Months
Fast and quiet!
Died after 7 months
Although this drive is fast and quiet, mine died after seven months of use. It worked perfectly, and then one day, it was no longer recognized at startup. Seagate promptly replaced it.

Experience: 1 Weeks
- quiet
- 8MB cache
- fast
- does not get too warm/hot
- not 16MB (but better then 2MB
I got this drive to replace my "replacement 30GB Maxtor drive" that I never used when the first one died, because I was too scared this one would die as well. Well, I was right. As soon as I starting use it, it died.

I decided to use this drive in my Xbox, and worked perfectly. Was able to lock it up. Now I can put all my games on the HDD, and never get up again to swap Disc's. That and my wireless controller, and I am now set.

Experience: 6 Days
 Verified Owner
GREAT PRICE (Even better PM)
None so far.
If your drive breaks, and you send it in for warranty there won't be much point because it will already be outdated I like this drive.

NOTE: Remember to install SP2/Slipstreamed disk so that you can get the full capacity and not the 130 GB limit.

Experience: 3 Days

high quality
low noise
none yet.
If you're looking to buy a hard drive at a good price Seagate's have excellent value hard drives. They are alot better quality than Maxtor hard Seagate has a 5 year warranty to back it up. Well...that's about it...

Experience: 6 Weeks
Fast enough for video. Compatible with the external case I chose.
None so far.
Purchased this to use in an external drive enclosure for video work on a Mac iBook. I decided to go with Seagate since my other Seagate drive has had no problems at all in two years. I'm using it in the Hotway USB/Firewire enclosure, and it works great so far.

Experience: 1 Months
Fast and Quiet
none so far
I bought this to replace a Maxtor 120GB which died in 36 days. Mine is made in Singapore and is fast and quiet I had it on almost 30 days now and it is working fine. My PC is on almost 7/24 except reboot once a week.

Experience: 2 Days

Very quiet, 160GB/low price, fast (8MB cache), easy to install and great (5 year) warranty!
None that I can see (for now anyways...)
Seagate has just become my new hard-drive company of choice. This drive was perfect, especially with the awesome price tag NCIX delivers. Firstly, anyone who thinks an OEM drive makes it difficult to install or somehow extremely complicated, you are (mostly) wrong. I have never bought an OEM hdd and installed it on my own before and this one took me about 5 minutes to put into my computer and plug the cables in and screw the drive in place as well. One note however is that with this OEM drive (and most others I think) you do not get a cable or screws, so you will have to have your own (or buy the cable from NCIX). Most importantly and this should come with proper common sense as well, make sure not to touch the under-side of the drive as there are many tiny transistors as well as the spinning center and you could break something if you are a very clumsy fool. So, WARNING: Be careful when installing!

Anyways, after putting the drive in, turning on my computer and getting into Windows XP SP2, I used PartitionMagic to setup this drive and in total I spent 15 min setting the drive up (incl. putting into PC and formatting drive as well). Awesome quality, value, lack of noise, and warranty of 5 years is nice as well. Thank you Seagate and thank you!

Fast and reliable
Great performance, quiet and reliable. I chose Seagate because all my other drives from Seagate are still alive while quantum, maxtor, fujitsu and ibm crashed.

Experience: 3 Weeks
Quiet, 8MB cache, fast.
It's not SATA?
Really quiet & 8MB cache... nice. Gets indexed for 49~50MB/s on my system in Sandra. Apparently Seagate has a reputuation now for making their drives run really quiet? In any case, they've never let me down and I'll stick with them for a while.

Holds 160 gigs, seagate quality, 5 year warranty, quiet, fast
I have been very impressed with Seagate hard drives lately. After they increased the warranty to 5 years, it's clear that they are standing behind the quality of their product. The drive is amazingly quiet; I can only hear it when it spins up after I turn the computer on, or while I am doing lots of hard drive activity (ie: booting OS). The original XP RTM could only partition the first 137 gigs, but I installed XP SP2 directly onto this drive, which meant I could partition the whole 160 GB.
