The warranty that a manufacturer puts on their product gives one an indication of what they think and know about their product. This enterprise drive has a 5 year warranty, so that tells one much. Do your homework and you will see that it also has two bearings, a major improvement, plus a MTBF of over a million hours. That is many years. It also has 128 MB buffer.
I ordered it and it came in, but poorly packed. Amazon needs to learn that bubble wrap is for shock absorption and belongs on all sides of the drive before putting in a box. It must be a well made drive, in spite of this horrendous packing job. The drive physically resembles some of the old drives, bigger, heavier, more solid construction.
I installed it in my machine, did a format and partition, and it runs very well. I am very pleased with the performance of this drive. So pleased, that when Amazon learns how to properly package it, I will buy another. I suppose that offering to buy another is positive sign about how pleased that I am with this drive.
If one values their machine, and actually uses it for work, then the aggravation when a drive dies is far more expensive than the few extra dollars to purchase an enterprise drive such as this over a regular drive. In my mind, I will only buy enterprise drives in the future.
I build my machines because I select the best quality parts with which to build it. Machines that are built for the mass market have to compete on price, and for a few dollars more I can build a rock solid machine. And Enterprise drives are part of this recipe.
The first of these HDD's of this model that I ordered was D.O.A. I was quite depressed, but I know it happens; This is the first time ever I personally had received a dead HDD right out of the box, though. It did not appear damaged in any way. The bios recognized it as well as windows, but I got an I/O error whenever I tried to initialize it. After that, I got up close to my computer so I could listen to the HDD as I turned on the power; it made an initial mechanical sound, and then wound down and became silent. I'm not an HDD expert, but I suspect the motor that spins the platters may have been the problem with this one. Because of how promptly amazon responded to replacing it, how quickly I received my replacement, and due to the fact that the replacement works just fine, I'm giving the drive 5 stars.
When I am buying a HDD, it's generally not used as a primary drive (solid state normally is what I used), and so I generally use the HDD as a backup, parallel, or independent setup to hold large data files I do not want to keep on my SSD's. So it holds a ton of data I find important, and want to keep. So I have a strong preference for drives that more in the "enterprise" grade than "home usage". Over the past ten years, I have found enterprise drives tend to be more reliable, usually be faster, yet pricing is often less expensive than home drives. So my looking elsewhere was really limited to enterprise grade HDDs, more or less.
The ratings on the entire Constellation line are, as a whole, generally very positive. The ratings for this particular Constellation (the ES.3) are, as you can see, stellar. The drive is reliable, affordable, and fast. Significant enterprise usage of these drives also shows them to be very, very reliable units.
Speed-wise, I think this Constellation can be an upgrade over something like the WD Caviar Black and RE4, and Seagate's own Barracuda. While the specs on paper suggest marginal differences, I find real-world usage of the ES.3 results in very good data speeds for a HDD, and especially for a HDD @ 7200 RPM. Part of this is likely because the ES.3 has a very slow latency in terms of maximum latency time (less than half of what many other high performance HDDs have). The only (non-solid state) drive I have used that is faster is the WD Velociraptor , which is not a practical drive at all. Paired with a good enclosure, and USB3 or ThunderBolt, I think this is one of the best external hard drive setups one could have.
