Rebate check arrived on 3/10/2005 (with an expiry date that I realized afterwards was 3/7/2005). I deposited check only to have it bounce because of the stale date (cost me $12 - which, of course, Seagate wont reimburse). Seagate has promised to mail me another check...Its April 30, 2005 today, and I was told I should get it in 5 weeks. 8 months to get $50...no wonder we all hate mail-in rebates.
KEEP IT COOL!! I bought a coolerMaster 4 internal drive bay that has a big fan infront and I never let my drives get much over 100 degrees. Drives from 120GB on get very very HOT if they don't have a fan blowing on them. I believe this might contribute to early failure so be warned.
News flash: seagate bought maxtor and they are the exact same drives now. However, the maxtor diag disk gives you more options such as burn-in and low level format / write zero. It takes 4 or 5 hours or more to run on a 500G drive.
The "big" 200, 300, 400, 500GB drives seem to be getting more reliable although, I bought a Seagate 500G drive and tested it with the diagonostics and it passed the read scan but then I ran the Maxtor burn-in test and it failed then I hear the motor spin up and down and they the bios stopped sting the drive. I wrote the error code on the drive and ran it back to fry's electronics in san diego and exchanged it for another that passed all tests with flying colors.
Existing review: ---------------------------------------
I sent back RMA'ed the Seagate 300GB internal ATA drive - it cost $400 to get the data off it from a data recovery place. I found out Maxtor was bought by Seagate in dec 05. That makes sense that I bought and returned two internal maxtor sata 250GB drives - tested both before use. The first failed by corrupting files in 7 days. The second reported drive failing on their diagnostics utilities.
WD is no saint either. The entire industry from what I am reading is turning out junk drives. WD and other 120GB probably most reliable. 200G and up = ???? back your data up with these large drives!!!Read more ›
Before installing the drive, I'd check any documentation I happened to have. If you don't have any manuals, google up your particular machine and "installing second hard drive" and I can almost guarantee that someone else has tried to do the same thing.
Finally, check your PC's setup. For example, I put this into a Dell Dimension. The final step in the setup is to go into the BIOS setup and be sure that the Second Drive setting is set to "Auto" and not "Off." If it's set to off, the drive will still work - but very, very slowly!
That's just an example - your mileage may vary.
These are ultra-quiet drives. So quiet, in fact, that when I installed a Maxtor 160gb as my boot I was bothered by the noise increase.
Biggest concern: You MUST use the Seagate LBAH-Registry utility to open up the computer to drives over 128gb. I failed to do that and for about 3 hours had to futz around to figure out why I couldn't get the drive's full potential. The other utilities included with the drive offer trouble-free drive duplication/boot drive replacement- and best still, it worked ;)
All in all I'll keep buying these 200gb drives every chance I get. It's amazing how much space high end digital SLRs take up ;)
What to like:
+The price is fair market for 200 gigs.
+Seagate past reputation and 5-year warranty is a plus.
+Fast 7200rpm, but not the fastest
+Easy set-up, then again if you done formatting before then this is not an issues. I don't use the back-up software that came with the drive, because I do it manually to DVD-r.
+No hardware problems yet except for:
-Noisy hard-drive. I returned the first 200gig after loud clicking noise while copying. There is also a chronic clicking sound about every 1.5 min for 15sec while idle! Other reviewers have noted this too. Must be the hardware checking itself.
I use this as an eternal hard-drive, so I can hear everything. The second replacement from Best Buy is a lot quieter then the first, but is still nosier then my old external Western Digital, which was silence except for start-up. Both hard drives ran at 7200 rpm.
-Not SATA, but parallel works better for external.
IBM Deskstar- Still working somewhere
Maxtor- Still working somewhere.
2 Western Digitals- Both lasted about 2 years, never will buy again.
Toshiba- still on my 4-years old laptop.
Iomega- 4200 rpm external still working and very quiet.
After a month the clicking sound has been subdue (still there) a little or I got use to it.
