Wonder if this is affected by that nice firmware bug.....
Seagate has launched its much-expected 2TB drive under the Constellation brand, which includes 2.5-inch small form factor (SFF) drives, for nearline storage needs. The Constellation ES 3.5-inch drive replaces the Barracuda ES and comes in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities with 500GB platters and SATA and SAS interfaces. It spins …
I'm after a simple thing that Seagate announced last July time: a 500GB 2.5" drive spinning at 7200RPM.
It appears after a scant 6 months that they are just about shipping. But not in the UK.
So I guess we'll see these in about 6 months then?
Come on Seagate, get it together. With 6 month delays, reduction of warranty on some stuff and the recent firmware debacle, you could be doing a little better.
... it lasted a lot longer without problems than the Seagate drives. :D For being the king of capacity and generally having a good rep, the Seagate should have at least worked. Shouldn't have to beg Seagate and convince them I have a problem to get a firmware update for a widely spread problem.
I've never had any problems with WD drives. Been running the original Raptors for over 4 years.
I've had some great Seagate drives, which is why I tried it. But the 1.5TB was crap. Just read up about it online.
Did you also the think the old Deathstar's were great drives too?
