Great, fast HDD. Needed more storage for my computer and walked down to best buy and bought it. Been using it for holding all my games, and running them of course, and it's worked great.

Old hard drive, pretty slow. Only used as a mass storage drive, no OS or games.

Not bad although it is about 2 years old

It's a hard drive, I had this from an older build, this drive has been spinning for about 3 years now and with no issues to speak of.

Didn't actually buy this its out of my old pc and is used just for storage for files & programs. Been running fine for over 3 years and is a good all round HDD.

Seagate Barracuda 500GB : Everybody needs a mechanical drive for mass storage and this one is filling up fast due to all my files for school.I will add an addtional 4TB when it is full.

In terms of satisfaction, it's exactly the same as my smaller 250GB, yet has not started to give me any errors. Only minor gripe is that it is noticeably the loudest drive I have.
