2 out of 5 eggsSMART...not

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: price

Cons: smart tripped..

Other Thoughts: used for 16mo, 2-4hrs a day and only 1/3 of capacity used. Real hassle to replace this and not too excited to depend on a replacement.

2 out of 5 eggsRan well for about two years

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Installed March 2012, was fast and stable for about 2-3 years.

Cons: System has started acting up in the last year giving read errors when programs try to launch, and I finally cloned the hard drive to a Western Digital Black 7200rpm 1gb. Performance drastically improved and errors have disappeared.

Other Thoughts: WD1003FZEX 1TB going in, we'll see if it fairs any better. My history with WD is they get old and slow down, however they've never given me read errors. Seagates always got very noise but this is my first to give me read errors/bad sectors.

Pros: None

Cons: DOA - Purchased only because it came as a combo but I would stay away from Seagate. On the other hand, their customer support is good.

Pros: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for the price

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST500DM002 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I'm the IT Dept. manager for a mid-size business with 30 years of IT experience. I research my products thoroughly before purchase, and track their lifespan and usage carefully. I've purchased over 50 of these drives for users in or office over the past few years. Failure rate has been less than 5%, and performance has always been quite good.

Cons: Only 16MB of cache? Most drives come with 32 or 64, now. Wish Seagate would provide more firmware update utilities.

Other Thoughts: I will buy and use these drives in all our corporate workstations until price of SSD's comes down a little more. They meet all our needs for capacity, speed, and reliability. I don't understand all the negative reviews!?
