This is a decent deal. Hopefully the prices will drop a bit more before the end of the year.

For those wondering this is a 7200 rpm drive (ST2000DM001-9YN164). I've had about a dozen come through over the last month and they have all been 7200 rpm drives. Not a bad little drive.

They do tend to run hot.

I'm doing an image copy from one to another and have 1 drive in a different case and it is running at 118F while the one in the original case is at 129F.

Power management is disabled by default. You need to download software from Seagate to enable it.

Go here:

Download this tool, attach hard drive, then run the tool. You can set the power save mode from anywhere from 3 minutes on up.

This is a drive saver because, without it, the drive will just stay on ALL THE TIME, causing heat build up and raising its failure rate.
