Experience: 1 Months


Works fine, just as expected
A bit noisy at times
Great upgrade for me from my 80gb IDE hard drive, also made by Seagate. I will never buy from any other manufacturer, just because the quality of the Seagate drives that I have had has been so good. The only issue with this one is it gets a bit noisy at times, but I'm not picky and I'm usually blasting music anyways so I can't hear it.

Experience: 50 Days


fast, quiet, seagate reliability
not sure how quiet they acually are as thats not the main purpose of the rig they were put in. have them running in RAID1 on a friends work rig as his data is very important.

seems pretty fast, didn't notice any excessive noise.

Experience: 1 Years


Excellent brand, outstanding speed, warranty
What can I say? Drive worked out of the box: my asus board saw it right away, linux 2.6 picked it up without problems. The drive is fast (I dont have SATAII, but its still faster than pata), and quiet.

Experience: 2 Months


Well its a hard drive...
This is the loudest hard drive i have ever listened too!!! i already have a 320gb seagate and its perfect, but this 250 is crazy loud. Would never consider buying this product again

Experience: 1 Months


Good for price/quality
a bit noisy
Always been a fan of Seagate. No problems and very good for it price. However I've been building this silent PC and it revealed that it was the loudest part on the machine, with a constant hummm electrical noise vibration. I cushionned rubbers on the HD but couldn't get rid of the noise. It also noisy on the seeking.

Other than that it get my respect for the longest run drives without failure I ever had. This was my 6th drives.

Fast, decent amount of space
LOUD when seeking
I bought this drive because I've been using a 7200.7 160GB Seagate Barracuda and has been very happy with it. I had been warned that this drive would be loud, but I took the chance anyway. Installed Windows on it and the seeking noise is horrid. Since Seagate bought Maxtor, it seems like this is a Maxtor drive with a Seagate sticker on it. It sounds as bad as the old Maxtor drives. Had to take it out and use it as an external hard drive because I could not stand the seek noise.

Experience: 25 Days


-Lots of space
-Good Warranty
-Really noisy when seeking!
I bought this drive because I was quite happy with my two Seagae 80 gb 7200.9 SATA2 drives that I run in a RAID 0 array. I didn't even look at reviews because I was so happy with those, I thought this would just be a bigger version. What I didn't expect is how noisy this drive would be during seeking. This drive alone is significantly louder when seeking that my two 80 gb drives combined. I was planning on using this drive in an HTPC in my living room, but I might have to buy something else and use this drive elsewhere.

Experience: 6 Months


stores a lot of stuff
hasn't died yet
kinda noisy
well, this is a hard drive, and it stores stuff. like it should... it hasn't died yet but it is slightly noisy. i guess all hard drives are because they spin nonstop.

Experience: 1 Years


Best value
Good performance
Quiet in idle
Loud when seeking but found this is okay considering how quiet the drive is when it is not...
I thought at first that the seeking sound was unbearble at first but i quickly realized that's because it's so quiet when it is not.

It's very quiet when it is not seeking.
Good performance overall.
I have tried 3 different brands and Seagate seems to be the best value of all.

I would purchase Seagate again.

Great performance, nice price, lots of room
Might only work as SATA1, quadruple check your m/board for compatability.
This hard drive works quite well. It is quiet, a LOT more quiet than previous gen HD's. It's speed is good and it is solid as a rock. No problems with heat or noise.

I only have one HD so I can't erally do a side-by-side comparison, but it does what is promised.

I did have problems getting it to work as a SATA2 with my new Sapphire M/board. To this day I can only get it working as a SATA1, if I try SATA2 when installing I get a weird error when it looks for the RAID drivers. Maybe it will be better with Vista and you don't have to do that moronic floppy RAID Driver disk crap.

All in all,a good drive
