I used the online "seatools." When I do the quick test neither "seatools" nor " HD Tune" finds a problem. But they both find a problem doing the slow test.
After doing the online test, seatools tried to do an online rma but there was a problem:
I am an american living in Spain. I did the test on USA webpage may this caused the problem with the onlive rma. The drive is 80 gig seagate which sells on newegg for $40. I bought drive 14 months ago a local store here. This summer I am going to USA and I plan on buying one or two http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822148140
I was planning on using the 2 80 gig harddrives in a family member´s computer.
Does Seagate charge shipping and if so, is it worth the hassle for a $40 drive.
Sorry for the long story
