I would bite if it wasn't for the bad reviews, newegg has 44% 1 star - thats huge, usually they are 20% 1 star on all drives. Tigerdirect and circuit city seem to have very similar websites created/updated by same people, I am suspect of Tigerdirect reviews as they are almost always high percentage positive
newegg is not very good with HDDs so you cant blame seagate for that.
Obviously everyone has different experiences, but I really wouldn't hesitate about buying Seagate. WD is still my preferred brand for home use; however, I do have a couple Seagates, and they haven't had a single problem (including my "Old Faithful" PC, which has gotten daily use since I bought it in 2005). At work (in IT), most of our systems use WD, so as a result, most of our failures are WD. Seagate, Samsung, and Hitachi don't seem to have any higher failure rates from what I've seen, though. Now Maxtor drives, back when they were made, that's a different story!!
I have 3 seagates that have been problem free since 2006, that doesn't mean I'd buy another. Back then they got mostly 4-5 star reviews, not anymore. Read reviews and see how many 1 star reviews they get these days. I wouldn't buy a Seacrap now.
Yeah Seagate used to my favorite and loved the 5 year warranties and great dependability. But I read on here all the time how Seagate is so poor, so you guys have convinced me to avoid it whenever possible.
Nice find, price is great, how good are these harddrives. What are there fail rates?
depends on who you ask
