Its the most cheapest drive now but it was the best when i got it and i have windows 7 installed on this drive and it my main drive. So i'm going to get a black wd drive for my primary for os to spped up things and keep this for storage. Otherwise its quiet and its blue. Great for storage.

Pros
Great speed
suits my purposes
Cons
still a little pricy at $50, got mine with MIR for $34 +tax
Summary
I like the 7200RPM drives and this one has a 3yr warrranty :)

installed it in a new build with no problems what so ever. w/ retail 64-bit windows 7 pro OS (still 'virgin' state ->AKA no extra software installed, only installed mobo drivers and anti virus and MS office 2007), takes about 1min to fully boot and load windows.
IMO for a HDD to take only 1min to do a complete boot is pretty good, i'm happy at least

Recommend the 1TB HDD though as it's a better value for $/GB

Cons
-None
Summary
Very decent drive, one of the cheapest I could find. Perfect for a budget build, performance is good but this is no high-end disk. Using this one as a boot drive in a Windows Home Server. Works, no complaints. Silent, or almost.

Pros
cheap, what else?!
Cons
pausing noise when downloading at night is annoying for my NXZT vulcan case. you should hear nothing with the "silent case" like antec sonata.
but i am sure its very low compare to those WD Black series ppl are complainning now a day.
Summary
i got it for $34 something, but on ncix anniversary its only $30! you should get one if u are on budge build.

Pros
Cheap.
Works.
Cons
Doesn't store your data over a gigabit ethernet connection on a server with infinitely redundant RAID, and daily backups.
Summary
Had a 2TB drive that had been external storage, that I converted into the OS drive on a new build. Didn't like that setup, so I bought something cheap to hold the OS/apps/docs, and now that 2TB and this Seagate are in the same machine. I've had no problems with this so far. Some slower loading screens in Half Life 2, but generic use is still as fast as on any computer. Maybe it'll die in a year, but, so might any drive. If you want to save $5/$10 over an equivalently sized drive from someone else, you'd probably get what you pay for either way. This one just happens to cost less.

Pros
- 7200 RPM hard drive for cheap.
- Used on 5 of my builds, never had a problem.
Cons
- Bit loud at times, but it is a mechanical drive.
Summary
This is a great hard drive for the price that can usually be purchased on sale for a steal. The 7200.12 series of the Seagate Barracuda is a great improvement over their previous series of hard drives. I have used this on 5 of my builds now and would recommend it. It doesn't perform as well in terms of Read/Write as a WD Black, but it is significantly cheaper.

Pros
Cheap, and a large HD capacity!
Cons
SATA2
Summary
Great drive for anyone looking for cheap storage, however, not the fastest as Windows 7 rated it 5.9.

Comment: We're happy with the 7200.12 series so far. Performance is great in most areas, besting the 7200.11 series 1.5TB drive and the Velociraptor in some tests...
