2.0 out of 5 stars Drive developed a fault, 20 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Seagate OEM 500GB Barracuda 3.5 inch 7200.12 Internal Hard Disk Drive (7200RPM, SATA, 16MB Cache) (Electronics)
After first installing this drive, it worked without problems for about two weeks and I was actually very happy with it - it was fast and much quieter than my Samsung drive. However, one day it started making a beeping noise and became unreliable. In the end it was no longer detected by the computer and I had to return it for a refund.

On the upside, Amazon's return service was excellent. The return postage was prepaid and the refund was credited to my bank account within three days of posting.

I have exactly the same problem with this drive after one year (seems to be common fault). Now I need to deal with Seagate manufacture warranty.
