This hard drive has functioned for over a year now and I haven't encountered any problems with it. It runs quickly and sits at a great price while still being very quiet.

FAST and RELIABLE!! Runs perect out of box, I didnt have to update  firmware or anything. BEST Gaming HD I have ever had. and what a value even if it is open box for $70 you cant go wrong
NONE to be foundm runs quiet, Fast, downloads 600MB in about 3 minutes.

Simple, quiet solid operation
None for me
Bought this drive to replace a drive that was starting to go in one of our Macs. Popped it in, Ghosted the drive over and it has worked without fail. Great drive, great price!

Experience: 3 Months

hopefully it will work fine now.
not knowing if it will stay alive.
This drive failed thought all my data was gone, new I bought one and never notified me of the potential problem of the firmware. I don't come back and read reviews after I buy, I did come back this time because I was going to leave a bad review and discovered the problem with the firmware. It would apear new of the problem and if they didn't they sure should have with all the bad reviews, and they let me risk my data and say nothing. The only saving grace is Seagate applied the firmware patch successfully, no thanks to ncix.
Next time I better come back again and again and see if the hardware I purchased from is garbage or not.

Experience: 1 Years
Reasonably fast
Poor electrical components?
I have four of these drives, and two have failed, with one more giving me problems.

The failures don't appear to be media related. I never got bad sectors. Basically the drive became intermittently unresponsive. It would work for a few hours and then quit. Within a day or two, it would work for a few minutes. I suspect there are quality issues with their passive components.

I also have several Western Digital drives that have given me no problems.

Tons of space
I've been using this brand for a while now and I'll continue to use the same brand since none of them have let me down. It's fast, reliable & quiet.

Experience: 1 Months
easy to install and sturdy (dropped it twice and its fine)
loud, makes buzzing sounds during strong use
This Internal hard drive is a very good product for its price. It is relatively fast and easy too install. However, you might wanna to keep in mind, that this hard drive makes an awkward buzzing sound that is quite noticeable when you are transferring something to or from it. Over all this hard drive is definitely a good product for its price.

Experience: 4 Months

Comment: With 250GB platters, 32MB of cache, and a 7,200-RPM spindle speed, the Barracuda 7200.11 should be the fastest high-capacity drive on the market.....
