[OLD] A drive I have for several years that always kept all my games - in my new rig it is still in use for casual data (games wandered to a new, 1tb HDD because of space issues). A very fast drive which only runs a little hotter than new WD blue drives.
Great response time for a HDD and has been working just fine for over 2 years. HD Sentinel still gives this drive over 1000 days of usage when total power on time is over 510 days.
Only negative this thing runs hot. My case pretty much forces passive cooling on the HDD cage as the only fan you can install is near the SSD cage. This thing will easily hit 49 C which is at the edge of my comfort zone for HDDs
Works. I've owned two for over 10 years and they still work, although one has been spitting out SMART errors. still a long lifetime for a good drive.
I've luckily received this drive for free with Windows 10 pro installed on it. Very VERY loud and would much rather have a newer barracuda, but beggars can't be choosers.
