    This drive helps me utilize Adobe Photoshop CS5, and, especially, Adobe Bridge, more efficiently. I partitioned the drive into three sectors, one of which is dedicated as a scratch disk for Photoshop work, greatly enhancing the speed of that software. The drive was easy to install. I used Windows7 software to format/partition the drive, foregoing using the Seagate software; thus I can't comment on that. No problems to report. It simply works as advertised.

    I wish I could give this little gem a 6-star review! I replaced a dead hard drive with it and, as I said, the install was completely seamless, did it myself, and hardware is not my strong suit. Just make sure you know what you're doing and follow the instructions. I'm seriously thinking of getting another one so that I can have 2 TB of storage (I'm a video hobbyist) instead of 1 TB.
    February 8, 2011 suareca says:
    Pros: the space for price
    Cons: cost to install
    Although this was amazing to upgrade my computer, it was the same amount to install it which ended up being twice the advertised price project.
    February 1, 2011 BillB says:
    Used as a second slave bu It is great because is works! I had to pay for it! Seagate HDs are the best!
    January 25, 2011 cosmos31 says:
    Pros: Ease of installation.
    Cons: Tech support.
    Seagate continues to produce decent products. While Tech Support is suspect, the reliability of the equipment is good.
    January 25, 2011 randy419 says:
    Pros: price
    Cons: not a full terabyte
    The price was right but it short on being a full terabyte. It was a couple hundred bytes short, but for the money it was a good deal.
    January 25, 2011 Zeus001 says:
    Pros: Quiet
    Cons: Not an SSD
    This is a good drive for the normal user and for most applications. Serios gamers woult opt for SSD boot drive and use this one for data however most people would be happy with this drive.
    January 20, 2011 floprocker says:
    Pros: Good price for 1TB
    I purchased this to put in my iMac that had a bad hard drive. Easily installed, works great. Seagate makes great internal drives.
    January 16, 2011 Guitarmoon says:
    Pros: Easy to install - the first drive cloned perfectly from the original drive - no noise - quick response with programs
    Cons: nothing that I can find!
    I needed to upgrade my computer for some video work that I had taken on - I now have (2) 1TB Seagates (7200.12) installed that just keep on rockin! Boot-up time has almost been cut in half from what used to be inside (5900 OEM WD hard drive) and they are super quiet when working!
    December 27, 2010 CThom says:
    Pros: Easy to set up, quiet and fast
    Cons: Nothing
    I bought this drive on sale as an internal addition in my MacPro. I was so please with it's smooth, quiet performance that I immediately bought three more. Great value for the money
    December 15, 2010 doughboy says:
    I heard rumors that this item was difficult to install. I'm using it as backup storage and installation was easy and quick. No issues and easy to install.

    Integrated effortlessly into my existing gear. Used for backing up. So far so good.

    BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT AND INSTALLED IT, ALL IT DID WAS CLICK, FREEZE AND CRASH. i TOOK IT BACK AND SWITCHED IT OUT FOR ANOTHER ONE AND THE SAME THING AGAIN. I CALLED SEAGATE AND WAS TOLD THEY HAD A ISSUE WITH THE FIRMWARE, I WAS TOLD BY SEAGATE TO TAKE IT BACK AND GET MY MONEY BACK.
    September 16, 2010 Dave1968 says:
    Easy install using the SeaTools software included, once I figured out how the software designers were thinking. (A little confusing at first)
    The drive was not as fast as I'd hoped, but I got what I wanted - the capacity.
    September 13, 2010 dlabine says:
    Pros: Speed and Storage space
    Cons: nothing yet
    This drive has a 32MB cache buffer AND 7200 rpm speed which makes it really fast.
    I highly recommend it
    August 31, 2010 jjseagt1tb says:
    I bought 2 Seagate 1 TB 7200 drives to replace existing drives to improve PC performance. The installation process and system transfer went smoothy. I did see an increase in performance, but not as much as I expected.
    August 12, 2010 Onay says:
    Cons: Unreliable; Drive failed after 3 days
    Do not purchase this hard drive. Your taking a gamble. My pc started freezing after 3 days of use. Win 7 was just installed and it was constintly hanging ran diags on HD using seagate dos boot cd. Diags failed tellin me bad sectors unable to repair call seagate to return.

    July 29, 2010 Nanc says:
    Great price for 1 T of reliable storage, and becase it's an internal, I can pull it out of the Desktop HDD Dock and insert another. Might try a 2 T next time. CON- Seagate wouldn't/couldn't advise me how to find & format the drive since it was in a dock. Had to find advice in another place, but next time, I'll know how.

    Pros: Great price, easy Raid configuration
    Cons: Nothing yet!
    Super quiet, performance is great. I have a gaming system and my HD's kept dying on me so I bought this and I have not had issue one and I am SO happy with that. I had heard it could be pretty loud but I have had no issues with that. Overall for this HD is that I wish I had bought one orginally instead of trying 3 sets of other HD's.

    Pros: Lots of space, plenty fast (I have two of these in a RAID0 setup), does what it's supposed to do just fine. Runs cooler than all of my other drives (all of which are rather old).
    Cons: None as of now.
    Lots of space, plenty fast (I have two of these in a RAID0 setup), does what it's supposed to do just fine. Runs cooler than all of my other drives (all of which are rather old). None as of now. I purchased these from another retailer for $59.99 each. I was originally going to go for 500GB WD Blacks but I couldn't pass this deal up.
    June 9, 2010 Reed says:
    As my main hard drive began to fill up with pictures and I no longer had room for a backup, I decided to get some drives dedicated to my documents and pictures. I chose this drive based on price, performance, size, and reviews. They arrived and were extremely easy to install. They included the necessary cable for connecting the drive to the motherboard as well as an power cable adapter. I did not need to use the power adapter as my computer had the proper connections already available. The included software made it easy to add and partition the drives. As far as reliability, I have only had them for about a month and have had no problems.
    June 6, 2010 Herb says:
    Pros: Highly Compatible; Reliable; Quiet; Easy To Install; Fast
    I think this is awesome i can do whatever i want with this an storage a lot of things
    May 28, 2010 RichardU says:
    Pros: Previous Seagate drive is good, expect same from this one.
    Cons: Installation software does NOT work.
    Bought this drive today because I wanted a lot of additional storage space. Existing hard drive (dual boot XP/Win 7) is a Seagate. It has been good to me so I expect the same with this HD. Bought the retail kit to get the screws and connectors for easy installation. Glad I did. Needed the screws and power connector. Did not need the data connector though.
    All went easy until I tried to boot the machine after installing. It would not boot. The manual said to check the Setup BIOS. OK. When I did, I found that it WAS detecting the drive - but the dumb thing was trying to boot from it. So I told it to boot from the original HD with the OS actually on it.
    Now the machine boots up. Installed the DiscWizard software as directed and rebooted the machine again. Went to start the DiscWizard to install my new HD as additional storage. THE PROGRAM WOULD NOT RUN AT ALL. It told me that I must have a Seagate HD installed on my system. Isn't that what I just installed? AND the existing HD with (2) OS installed on it is a Seagate.
    Had to use my existing Partition Magic program to format the new HD and make it functional. The DiskWizard software from Seagate does not even recognize the HD it comes packaged with.
    May 20, 2010 Vern says:
    I'm using this SATA Seageat HD in my Netgear ReadyNAS Duo. I will be picking up another HD this week-end. We use this brand name a lot at work and they hold up well, that is way I'm going with Seageat HD. My new PC came with this HD as well.
    May 17, 2010 Bob60 says:
    Pros: Easy To Install; Quiet; Fast
    Cons: No known cons at the time
    I needed a lot of storage and fast access for video editing. This drive provides both at a great price.
    May 11, 2010 mwsteel says:
    Pros: Quiet, easy to install, great tools included to pull the data off the failing disk.
    Cons: Price was low, less is best.
    Drive slid right in above old driive connected to system and was recognized first time booted. Included tools allowed for formating the new disk and partioning to take the exisiting data and partitions from the failing drive and move then to the new larger drive as the same size or increase the size. This worked great, made the transition easy, I swapped the cables on the drive to make the new drive primary and the system booted from it and it has worked perfectly ever since, that is about a month now.
    April 25, 2010 compucoach says:
    Put that drive in a Netgear NasReady network storage and it works great. easy to install, no software needed. perfect drive to expand the capacity of your network storage.
    April 23, 2010 Katora says:
    Pros: Works as says, easy install, great price
    Does what it's supposed to. Good deal. Glad I bought it.
    March 4, 2010 nicey says:
    Pros: size, speed, quiet, easy setup, cables included, software included
    Cons: nothing, yet
    I bought this drive as my 120gb seagate barracuda wasnt doing the job anymore. It still works fine but i needed more storage.
    It comes w/ the sata cable and power cable, instructions were easy, setup took like 5 mins at most. Super quiet, pretty fast, 931gb after formatting. Comes with software for formatting, partitioning, cloning, creating an image of your system, etc. Pretty good deal for the price. Couldnt be happier with this drive.
    March 3, 2010 buzzlightyear9 says:
    Pros: replaces a four year old seagate - love the reliability
    Cons: it says it is MS 7 compatible - but not in the manual or on-line
    I am avoiding Western Digitals from here on out, WD either in our desktops or laptops have not been holding up like the Seagates have.
    The Seagate said it was MS 7 compatible, but the instruction booklet and their website do not include MS 7 and the small changes from VISTA took a few minutes to figure out.
    February 13, 2010 Crow says:
    Bought two of these to use in RAID 1. Plenty of storage for the price. No problems so far.
    February 9, 2010 musicguy says:
    Pros: The price
    Cons: No reliability
    This drive lasted 3 months. Ane quite honestly I really did not use it that much. It was primarily used for data storage, not program running.
    It started clicking constantly and shutting down and starting up over and over again. Apparently this is an epidemic with these drives.
    Yes, Seagate will replace it but from what I've read, the replacements exhibit the same problems after a short while.
    Avoid!
    January 29, 2010 Mardyron says:
    This is the 2nd one of these I have. SO far both are great.
    January 11, 2010 GeeJay says:
    Pros: 1Tb to store my files
    Cons: Formatting takes a while
    This was such a good deal for my son's Christmas present that I got one for me, too! Each drive was simple to install; XP and Win7 had no trouble recognizing them; formatting takes time, but after all, it's a huge drive.
    January 11, 2010 dstarfire says:
    Pros: Easy to install, comes with drive testing and copying utilities.
    Cons: included software is poor,
    The product was easy to install and configure, as most internal hard drives are. It's also surprisingly quiet
    My only complaint is that the included software for copying an old drive to the new wouldn't let me enlarge the partition to fill the whole drive.
    January 6, 2010 rbeede says:
    Pros: Well packaged, included all needed cables/screws
    Came with all needed cables, screws, well packaged to prevent damage, 1.5gbps limitor jumper was turned off instead of on out of the box like many other drives.
    Price was only $86 online and shipped to my local store on time.
    January 5, 2010 cehall17 says:
    Pros: Loads of storage obviously, easy install for DIY
    This drive replaced a 250GB. Installation was straight up and easy. You won't be disappointed.
    Over the long haul is yet to be seen, but a happy camper for now.
    January 5, 2010 buddyscrn says:
    Pros: performance
    Cons: nothing
    good performance at a great price. The price doesn't reflect the value.

    November 29, 2009 Tech12 says:
    Pros: Got it on sale for $94
    Cons: Only lasted 4 weeks before it started clicking and clunking
    This drive worked great for about a month, until it started clicking and clunking, even if the computer was idle doing nothing. I ran the seatools disc dianostic program from seagate's website, and it failed the full scan test, and after the test it sounded like nuts and bolts rattling around, so I quickly copied my music and documents over to a old 300gb I had laying around and returned this drive. I exchanged it for a Western Digital 1TB and just paid the difference in price.
    November 20, 2009 Fastidious says:
    Pros: It plugs in; it works. It is a good value for the price vs capacity. What would 1 TB have cost only a year ago?
    Given its relative speed and size, it seems a better value than the Green drive.
    October 31, 2009 Newarkmuslim says:
    Cons: Easy Instal, Lots of space, Great Drive 5 Year Warenty
    You don't even need to install the software that comes with it...
    took me a whole 15mins. from opening up the tower to firing up the drive
    October 22, 2009 em the photographer says:
    No reason to rate these drives lower than 5 at this point. I bought two for my new Drobo. The folks at MacMedics who've worked on my MacBook Pro only like to use the Seagate drives so I decided I would invest a bit more in these vs. another brand slightly cheaper.
    September 28, 2009 ExNavyBubbleHead says:
    Pros: Price, Easy to install, 5yr Warranty, SPEED!!!!
    Cons: None so far
    I bought this for my 3 yr old desktop - It replaced a 250 GB factory HD. I installed the drive in minutes, only 2 connections, Power and Sata - The software was easy to install and use. I started cloning my old drive to the new - went to sleep - and when I woke up, I disconnected the old drive and turned my computer on - Now I have a brand new computer again! Quadrupled my memory for less than $100 - I will definitely be getting another for additional memory - The greatest thing about Seagate VS. Western Digital - This drive has a 5 year warranty, what do you have to lose?
    September 22, 2009 CharlesImaPC says:
    Pros: Easy install, relatively worry free if it doesn't quit
    Cons: I bought 3 identical drives; one failed abruptly without warning in month 14
    I have three of these drives but 1 failed after 14 months. They typically either fail within the first couple weeks or years of use. This guy failed abruptly after just 14 months of moderate use without warning. I'm learning the hard way to be vigilant about backing up your data. In general, I'm disappointed with this drive which should have performed better. I'm trying a Western Digital Black next.
    September 19, 2009 300cpilot says:
    Pros: Nothing, it will make you sad...
    Cons: To many things, but mainly you will loose all your stuff!
    1. Replacing Firmware does not always get your data back! Best case is that your computer will see a new blank hard drive.
    2. If you have a failed drive you can now get the manufacturer of this drive to recover your data, if you are lucky you will not have much on it because they charge by the file. If you scream real loud you might get it for free.
    3. Be prepared to wait a long time form the manufacturer, they are behind.
    4. Other companies charges start in the $2800.00 just to look and see if they can get your data. Our bill for 3-1tb drives was $27,500.00, wish this was a typo! It took the company 5 days straight, 24 hours a day to recover 85% of our data. A 15% loss of data for us equals we do not know if we will survive! Oh ya the second company to look at the drives only cost us $5800.00, but they could not recover anything at all!
    Lesson:
    You will pay in the beginning or in the end, but you will pay!
    September 14, 2009 Nevitt says:
    Pros: Easy install.
    Cons: Drive failed in less than 6mo.
    Not a bad drive all around. Easy and quick setup. However about 6months later the drive is making this band sounding click and scraping. RMA process is ok. They make you send the drive first or pay 20 bucks to have one sent to you in advance with 140 dollar penalty if you do not return the drive. I however do not have enough storage on my other drives to accommodate all the data on the failing one. I'm going to get a Western Digital drive like my other 3 that have not failed in over 3 years.
    September 12, 2009 Anonymous says:
    Pros: This HD offers lots of sttorage and excellent performance due to 32 MB buffer and 7200 RPM. It also has Seagate's outstanding 5-year warranty for retail Barracuda drives.
    Cons: The drive suffered a catastrophic failure after just 4 months. This is my first HD failure ever. Seagate replaced it under warranty immediatelyh. The new HD is installed, and my fingers are crossed. If this one fails, I will eat the cost and switch to Western Digital.

    Pros: 5 year warranty
    Cons: None so far
    I bought this drive to upgrade the 160GB drive inside my Tivo HD. I more than quadrupled my recording space and so far have no complaints about this drive. It runs warm but not too hot. The noise is trivial, as with most modern hard drives. The main selling point of this unit is the 5 year warranty. As with all hard drives, it is bound to fail at some point. So whether it's 3 years down the road, or 4, this drive has the upper hand on Western Digital. This is the main bullet point in my book.

    Pros: Works as designed. Fast reads, huge capacity, quiet.
    Cons: None so far.
    Works as designed. Fast reads, huge capacity, quiet. None so far. I built my computer with one of these originally, but after about a week, I ran out and picked up another one. I'll probably end up getting more of them. I've had great luck with Seagate products, and been using them for over 10 years now. These current two have been in use for 4 months.
    April 19, 2009 Props028 says:
    Pros: It wasn't DOA
    Cons: Time Will Tell
    It's quite, I did some benchmark research before I bought it. My fear, after searching all over the net, was that 1+ terabyte HD's have a high failure rate. I went with the 1TB drive instead of the the 1.5 for various reasons; once installed, I've had no problems...however, I was uneasy once the package arrived....
    I moved....my previous account didn't update in BB's system after I corrected the mailing address, before placed the order. A delicate HD shipped to an old address....I was concerned. I contacted my old address, they would personally hand me my shipment, along with some comments about the box. For UPS...the box was banged up...whether dropped or mishandled, I don't konw...
    Long story short, it works, installed easily and I'm greatful that the DOA doesn't apply to me. If it does, I'll add another review.
    March 29, 2009 avirpok says:
    Pros: Simple to install and setup
    Cons: Documentation could be better for new users
    The drives works great gives me a score of 7.9 in win7 rc 1 5057.
    For those who think that some space is missing, remember 1 k is metric=1024.
    In the USA we round it down to 1000. So if you add up all the additional 24's in 100000 kilo bytes you will find your terabyte.
    February 1, 2009 Matthew5423 says:
    Pros: I purchased this HD for the sale price of $99.99 thus making the value for the price for me higher than others.
    Cons: At the regular price it's not as good a deal.
    This HD has great sound properties,lots of space,and with the included software it is easy to transfer an existing OS,Programs,Music,Moveis,Pics ect... From your old HD.
    January 31, 2009 richierich42 says:
    Pros: Cheap, easy to install, pretty quiet
    Cons: Doesn't Plug n Play without install disc
    Just bought two of these to run as a 1TB RAID1 array. Within 2 hours, my old (filled) 500GB hard drive was cloned using the included DiscWizard software (actually Acronis True Image in disguise, what a nice, free surprise!), and now I'm running my old OS off the new drives! I really didn't think it would go so smoothly, as I've never set up a RAID configuration before. It's pretty quiet, same as my old Western Digital.
    December 14, 2008 Robert DCC says:
    This capacity drive is a long overdue purchase for my digital content creation. I use it solely for image, sound or video files and pair it with an 1Tb external HD for backup. I can't tell that its particularly fast, but I don't know whether its the Adobe programs or the hard drive access.

    Pros: great storage of files
    Cons: it's a little loud but nothing to cry about
    i bought this hdd for storage of movie files.. and it works great. i probably would'nt recommend putting your OS on it because these are made kinda cheap and would burn out in a year or so. but once again using it just for storage is what this thing is best for and the price is great. now i installed this in my emachines which was primarily set up for IDE hardware but i found 4 sata inputs on my motherboard and connected this bad boy up in no time. the only problem was i had to go into my bios set up screen (F2 @ startup) and change the order in which the hard drives boot..because my computer wanted to boot this harddrive first and not my other hard drive which has my OS on it...nothing big..only took a couple miinutes. now i get to store my movie collection as if it's "on demand"

    Pros: Easy to instal (mac); price

    I needed another drive in my Mac Pro and got online and saw the deal they had on this Seagate. I purchased it right away and when I got it I installed it within 15 minutes. Works great!! Wish I could've gotten 2
    October 2, 2008 Travisd says:
    Pros: Fast
    Cons: Defect rate
    Purchased two of these for a Raid 1 array. After just one week, one of these clicked non-stop and would not power up. Luckily because of Raid 1 my data was still on the 2nd drive. The 2nd one is working, but will probably fail soon.

    Pros: Works fine, plenty of storage space
    Cons: Discontinued?
    This is a great drive. Has good read and write times and a 5 year warranty from a name like Seagate I'm sold. I currently use this for data storage and system back up. Only problem I have with this drive is that I can't find any information on this model from Seagate's website nor can I register it for the warrany. The site reports it as an error though and not that the serial number is invalid. I've already owned this for about 3 weeks and it works fine but I'll be more confident in this drive if I got the warranty to back it up. Otherwise this is a great hard drive, plenty of room for movies, music, and whatever else you plan on using it for.
    September 7, 2008 navic99 says:
    Pros: easy to install, large size
    Cons: none that I can see
    Hard drive is easy to install and was up and running with a couple minutes of installing it into my computer. This is a 1 TB drive! It's replacing my 250 GB which was on the verge of failure. I will have tons of space on here for a looooong time.

    I needed 2 1TB internal drives for my Mac Pro to provide backup for a feature film I was editing (Red footage), and these drives were reasonably priced (especially compared to Apple's prices for 1TB drives). They were easy to install in the Mac Pro, work perfectly so far (1 month old at time of writing), and integrate perfectly into my system. I don't know how they do in the long term yet, but so far I would certainly recommend these drives for anyone looking for reliable, affordable, spacious drives.

    Pros: good price
    Cons: drive failed
    I had this drive for less than 2 months and it failed completely and suddenly with no warning. It spins up but will not even mount so that I can erase the data and return it for replacement. 3 different disk utilities can not access it.

    Installing this hard drive was simple and quick. Seagate has done a good job at making the transfer of information from the old hard drive to the new one. It took me about 1/2 hour for the whole process.

    Pros: Easy to install and use.
    Cons: Pain to remove the tiny SATA1 jumper.
    Bought and installed four in May and zero failures thus far. Nice and quiet in eSATAII box, no temp problems. 5-year warranty is worth an extra $10-$20, IMO--especially on a 1TB drive.

    Pros: 1tb of storage, Seagate name and warranty
    Cons: Gets hot, makes lots of noise after a while.
    The Seagate drive is great but after a while of using it, the drive tends to get start making a lot of noise.

    Pros: Storage space and speed
    Cons: disk write/read time
    Great peripheral for the bucks. Lots of storage space. Great transfer speed. Write/read time slower than expected.

    I plugged in the drive; did a quick format; and now I have a terabyte of additional space.
