Getting a large capacity hard drive
in 500Gb, 750Gb
or 1000Gb is no longer reserved for those hardcore and professional users. If you have any hobby whether it is golf, RC stuffs, motorcycle, rock climbing, and or any sports, video taping and photos have made it easy to keep the memory fresh and sharing them with friends and enthusiasts via your favorite on-line forum all over the world. Large capacity hard drives not only allows the users to keep the ever increasing MPEG2 and JPEG files but also the capacity for backing up the entire system and data.
Seagate Native Command Queuing (NCQ) technology increases performance by organizing incoming commands in the most efficient order.
16MB cache handle massive amount of data; advanced fluid dynamic bearing (FDB) motor ensures whisper-quiet operation.
Seagate hard drives are protected by built-in self-monitoring technology that continuously checks your hard drive for data safety and drive performance.
The 750GB Seagate 7200.10 would certainly have no problem in meeting all the requirements as far as capacity for photo/video album and all the backup needs at the cost of about $140.
Recertified or Certified Repaired Hard Drives cost less; it has the same warranty service as new hard drive. The draw back is the shortened warranty period. It is a matter of luck of the draw. It would seem to me that the warranty period begins when the recertified hard drive leaves the factory and not the time of purchase.
I checked the remaining warranty period through Seagate website using the Seagate’s Warranty Checker
when I received the review sample from Geeks.com. There is another 10 months left for this unit.
