Is this HD good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

HD's are getting fairly complex these days... anyways, I am looking for more storage, I'm running low! Time to replace two 320gb's with a big HD. I know the price is good per gb, but is there anything I should know about this HD?

Thanks

There was/is a freezing issue... however, they released a firmware update for it.
Once again...

for that size...its only useful for a backup drive...

for regular use I would go 1 TB as the max.

But its a decent drive with the newest firmware. Just realize its a huge ass drive and lots of things take longer to do on it...defrags, formats, backups etc..

Yeah, true... This is going to be used just for data storage. Movies, Music, etc.
