"Astonishingly Horrible"1.0 starson by Zefram
Pros: It comes in a pretty box.
Cons: It fails and corrupts the data. The manufacturer's recovery software, for both windows and DOS, crashes. The web site offers no assistance and the "chat" technicians hang up on you.
Summary: Bought two drives, one in July 08 and the second in Dec 08. Bought the second because the first had a corrupted boot sector, and now the second has the same issue less than a month after I purchased it. Tech support is shrugging their shoulders (after a 45 minute wait to speak with someone and another two hours on the phone) and Seagate's engineers deny that their software is broken even though it's a known issue on their web site forum for over a year and a half. I have now spent over two weeks of man hours trying to restore all of my data, because now the newly-minted drive is broken as well. I'm sticking with Western Digital's black series.
DO NOT BUY SEAGATE PRODUCTS! CAVEAT EMPTOR!
