750 gig hdd from seagate

Postby Orwell » Tue Mar 27, 2007 12:08 am

Does anybody know if the 750gb hdd from Seagate is any good? Almost all I've heard is that they fail in about a month from people, and the only official reviews I've found are ones about speed, which I couldn't care less for unless it happens to work as fast as I come out with videos.

Are you talking about the internal or external drive?

I've had my internal for 6 months and haven't had any problems. Just make sure you keep it properly cooled.

I hear that for all HDDs. "It died in a week"... "DOA"... blah blah blah. I have a Seagate 400GB external which has been kicking for over 4 months with no problems. I see buying computer components as a game of chance since there are many factors that can cause of HDD to die.
