Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, 160 GB
This is one hard disk you really need to avoid, as I manufacturer
of PC's i have installed it for three of my clients, sadly I had
to change 2 of them in 3 months. Both of the error prone disks stopped
working well after 1 week; with both having bad sectors within 2
weeks, after this date they both stopped working properly. Some
people may not have a problem with this disk, but I always had a
high opinion of Seagate disks. My confidence in this brand has been
shaken badly, I will not be recommending their disks to clients
in the future. I would recommend people to buy from another brand
now, someone else like Western Digital.
What's shocking is the Seagate site says this about the disk,
- Best-in-class non-operating shock for excellent reliability.
- Best combination of performance, acoustics and robustness.
- Idle acoustics of 2.5 bels- the industry's best.
I felt all three disks installed were rather noisy and reliability
was a joke. For anyone interested in this disk the tech info is,
- Capacity:120 GB
- Speed:7200 rpm
- Seek time:11.5 ms avg
- Interface:Ultra ATA/100
My advice is to AVOID!.
