This HDD 'Seagate Serial ATA-300, 7200 RPM, 16MB - MPN: ST3320613AS)' does quite well in Toms charts [3.5 hd chart] in various categories and looks like good value. But 'Newegg' reviews score it at 3 because of breakdowns after 3 to 5 months. Was this a bad batch or does this HDD have an inherent problem.
Anybody got any inside info on it?
I figured there must be a bit of 'gaming' as you say Raviolissimo, and some of the reviews appear to me to have obviously been written by a competitor...have you or anyone else have links to testing or reviews which are based on a year or so of use?
Also, Zipzoomflyhigh, are you associated with 'Zip Zoom Fly' ?
In any case, to both of you, thanks for taking the time to respond.
