Thought the hard drive in the raid1 system failing so bought this to replace. Turn out I could remove the raid, create new, and rebuild. Didn't turn out as bad as I had imagined. Keep this one for spare.
I got this drive for two reasons. One, it was cheap, and well one it was quiet. The second reason was that the motherboard I was using only had SATA1 and the chipset was not compatibly with my existing samsung drive which had a different number of compatibility pins. This seagate drive had the standard number of comparability pins and I was able to jumper them and make it all work successfully.
Overall a great choice for a hard disk if you are looking for cheap storage. I used Seagate SATA drives all the time and never had one fail. I've still using 80Gb drives in some of my older PCs without fail. Great buy!
