Silly question, but why is this a good deal when external 3TB drives are often less these days? Is this a higher class of drive - faster - runs cooler - longer warranty - better for NAS? ???
because may be these are 7200rpm? and seagate?
Hmm.... how good is this drive??? Kinda need a secondary harddrive....
this is a solid drive, but i sort of have a silly problem with it
I have one from an earlier SD that I use as the "data" drive in my recent build that has an Intel SSD for the OS. But this drive often goes into "semi-sleep" state when not in use and when it is time to get something from it or write something to it, I literally hear the drive starts spinning and there is a good long 4-5 seconds gap each time this happens.
once it awakens, the drive performs really fast, though.
It might just be some setting that needs to be done, but I thought I should mention this. I also had to do some special Seagate driver stuff before Win7 could recognize all 3TBs
