Worked fine right out of the box; installed and configured with no hassles.
I was able to easily configure it as a single partition. I configured it for GPT instead of MBR; and thus I have access to full 3TB (formatted as 2.72TB) without breaking it up into partitions. No extra software or hardware was needed.
I have a new PC the configuration made this install very straightforward: Asus P8P67 Pro REV 3.0 mobo, Intel i7-2600K CPU, 16GB RAM, two Intel 510 SSDs, 5 additional internal Seagate Barracuda HDs, two 3TB eSATA HDs Win 7 Pro 64-bit SP1, Antec P183 v3 case, Antec CP1000 power supply,
It runs just slightly warm to the touch, about the same as my other non-SSD HDs. Note: I have a 120mm fan dedicated to my (lower) HD bay where these drives are installed.
I scanned the whole drive for bad spots without significant findings or problems.
I needed the 3TB of space for my digital photography hobby, so easy access to this much space is very welcome.
