It is very quiet and fast.
Robert Bratton
Everyday users such as myself would find a better value in a slower, lower power, less expensive drive.
Dougie Fresh
UPDATE 11/29/2011: Both drives have been running great for about a year now 24/7.

We are an IT company and we have been putting these drives in for use as backup drives, and drive is e approved by Seagate for this purpose. The following is the litany for just one customer, new server install, with two-drive backup system:

- One of the two drives was bad out of the box. Seagate sent me a refurb to replace the new drive.
- The refurbed drive lasted 10 months.
- Ordered a new drive from Amazon. It was bad out of the box. Returned the drive.
- Took 3 attempts to get a good refurb to replace the 10 moth old refurb.
*Total to keep one drive running for one year required 2 new drives and 4 refurbs.

The new drives from Amazon came packaged in a cardboard book mailer and no padding. The drives shipped from Seagate were packed in the normal custom fitted foam drive carriers.

Detailed history for the curious:
- Ordered two drives from Amazon one year ago for new server setup.
- One of the two new drives disconnected while backing up the first time a backup was attempted on it. Failed Seatools long test. Seagate warranty sent us a refurb. (Should have returned it)
- 10 months later the refurb disconnected while backing up, as did the one I received from Amazon in the beginning. Failed Seatools long test.
- Purchased a new drive from Amazon. The new drive disconnected while backing up, same as happened with the original new drive. Returned drive to Amazon and requested a credit.
- Warranty exchanged 10 month old refurbed drive from Seagate. New refurbed drive spun up fine, but wouldn't come on line. Failed Seagate short test.
- Warranty exchanged bad refurb from Seagate. New refurbed drive had faint beeping noise (beep of death)
- Received another refurb.

Size Name: 2 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is an OEM product so expect that it does not come with some other pieces that are required to install. You will need a SATA data cable and if your power supply doesn't have any, a SATA power cable. The drive comes in a plastic clamshell case that just snaps shut. A concern here was a lack of a anti-static bag and padding for the drive but it seemed to have arrived in fine condition. It was definitely easy to open. No scissors needed and not blood drawn from sharp plastic unlike a more recent experience trying to open a toy for my daughter. Kudos to Amazon on their packaging even if it made me a little nervous.

This 2TB Seagate drive uses the latest SATA 6Gb/s technology (also known as SATA III) and is intended for use with the latest SATA 6Gb/s controllers. SATA 6Gb/s technology is a fairly recent thing so right now only the top-end motherboards have this technology and they are rather expensive. New SATA 6Gb/s PCI-e cards are also available and don't seem to have the premium price tag of the latest motherboards. However, thanks to the SATA standards, these aren't necessary to use a SATA 6Gb/s drive. These drives are backwards-compatible with SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s depending on the BIOS of the SATA controller. I was not able to test this drive with a SATA 6Gb/s controller because I do not own one but I was able to test it with both SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s controllers.

In all cases, the drive was very quiet and quick though not noticeably quicker than any other hard drive for the applications I use. Though, again, the testing was limited to SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 1.5Gb/s controllers and was also done using applications that don't necessarily benefit from the extra speed such as watching videos and streaming data.

Size Name: 2 TB Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Usual clear plastic & resealable which comes in handy for storage of other drives.
Used this in external eSATA HD dock. It supports the new serial ATA3 6 gig interface for added speed for those with the most up to date computer as of the day of this review. Mine isn't as fast, so using SATA2 3 gig hardware.
The HD powered up fine, I formatted from Win Vista 64 setup as one large partition & so far in the past two weeks it's been running well & consistent even with a lage amount of files. It runs also very quietly, which is surprising considering it's immense speed & capacity. The drive is in reasonable temperature range with use.
So far this is working well, the speed is great. I can write a 4.15 gig file in under 40 SECONDS.
I recommend this drive, the performance is great, with fast speed, great reliability & quiet operation.

Will definitely update this review if there are any issues.

My new high performance Seagate drive failed after 3 days!

After buying Seagate bare drives for over 15 years, I noticed that the quality of Seagate drives has been deteriorating over time. The Seagate 2TB 6 Gb/s drive started generating data and file errors in my Win7 PC after 3 days of use. Upon restarting Windows, CHKDSK is automatically launched to check the integrity of the new Seagate drive.

While this particular drive could be a bad unit and I was unfortunate to receive it, I have experienced too many premature failures with Seagate drives over the last 5 years. None of my Hitachi drives have failed yet.

The warranty is useless considering the amount of effort and time to recover or rebuild your data after a drive fails. Plus, who would want to return the drive when all of your data is still in it! Unless I can perform a 3-hour procedure to wipe the bad drive, I normally smash the drive with a hammer instead of invoking the warranty.

This time, I was tempted to purchase this Seagate drive because of its higher 6 Gb/s data trasfer rate. I couldn't find a similar offer from Hitachi. I have learned my lesson.
