Anyone who actually buys this drive never looked at any of the issues that seagate has had over the last year. Their data will burn in hell for their lack of attention to this.
We'll just have to wait and see, but yeah I would be wary of these drives. Seagates haven't been getting the best reviews lately. I'm sure some people do have good luck with them, but I'm hesitant due to Newegg reviews and the fact that the only drive I've had die in recent memory was a Seagate. All of my WD drives are running fine and I recently picked up 4 of the Samsung 2TB drives which I'm liking a lot so far.
I used to love Seagate too but after they bough Maxtor, reduced their warranty, had the 7200.11 firmware problems, etc. I'm just not very keen on them anymore. I haven't sworn them off forever but I'm fine not using them for now.
Also, we have to keep in mind that the vast majority of people that have good experiences won't take the time to write a review, while just the opposite is true for those that have drives fail on them.
FireWire2 said:Smart move! If Seagate release 3.0TB as internal... The company will be bankrupt due to the return of HDD. It is not the HDD but the SATA controller, there is TOO many SATA port can not see over 2.0TB (16bit addressing).
