-nice and cheap
a bit loud
gets pretty hot
I got this HDD as an external for some extra room, works great so far and its pretty fast.
my only problem is that its a bit loud and can get pretty hot when its been running for a while. but then that might be the problem with my external case instead.

good pick for anyone whos looking for a cheap HDD.

Experience: 7 Months

Works perfectly for now
Very noisy
Since the first time I have tried a Seagate drive, I've always stayed with this brand because it was sooo quiet!
This time I looked again for a Seagate drive because I HATE to hear a hard drive seeking for data, it drives me crazy. I don't know what happened with this series but it's one of the most noisy drive i've ever had. The drive itself is quiet, but when seeking for data, you don't have to look at the HD led on the case, you KNOW it's actually doing something on the HD.
It works fine though, but I'm very disapointed about the noise.

Really cheap
5-year warranty
fast enough
Pretty loud
This is one of the loudest Seagate HDD's I've owned. I also own a 160GB 7200.10 16MB drive, and it's just as loud. The 32MB cache drives seem to be quieter (I own two as well). HDD speed isn't my main priority, so it's fast enough for me. My only complaint is the noise.

Experience: 15 Days

reliable, big hd for a decent price, quiet
No problems so far. I got it for a very decent price - 50 bucks - for such a huge hard drive. Its quiet and easy to install. Well recommended!

Quiet, fast, warranty, cheap
This is a quite and fast drive! The warranty is excellent, and it's quite cheap--I got mine for $50. I haven't had any issues yet, so it seems to work well.

Quiet. Stable.
Good disk. Got this on Boxing day. It works as expected. No problem so far. A reading speed of about 61mb/s was detected with a disk tool.

Fast for its class
Quality issues
Bought this when on sale suring Christmas and it was a steal. The good thing is that it's cheap and quite fast for a 500GB drive using perpendicular technology. It all goes downhill from there though. This drive is very loud, vibrates significantly (despite rubber dampers in the HDD cage) and clicks very often on read/seek.

The noise issue is very bad, such that it is audible over my 8800GT fan which is locked at 45% speed. 8800 series are known for their noise as well, but for the HDD to be louder is simply unacceptable. I use an aluminium Antec case which is pretty light. But I did not expect the vibrations from the drive to actually vibrate the case slightly as well. I draw all these issues to quality control. These issues are in fact reported on forums and are pretty significant and affects a higher than normal percentage of their clientele.

Overall it is a bad experience and I would not purchase from Seagate again.
