There is an ongoing lawsuit against seagate for these drives.

The failure rate for them is absurdly high. I had mine fail.
Buy it and don't expect to use it for more than a year.

You have the most at risk for failure component in your pc, you can't spend $6 more to get an updated model from Newegg?
