Great product, Speedy delivery, 8 Feb. 2013
Brought 2 drives. Both arrived in one box and were wrapped up in plenty of bubble-wrap to secure them. Each drive was sealed in their original anti-static bags which was great. Installed as secondary drives and was visible in windows7 straight away. They are already formatted into to two partitions (2TB and 1TB) due to a 2TB limitation in MBR but in windows 7 you can go in to disk manager and reformat them to GPT (google it if you need instructions) and get the full 3,000GB on one drive. I needed 1 drive split in to two and the other split in to three which gave me 2 x 2.5TB & 3 x 1TB drives on windows explorer!
The drives take a little while to start up from being parked but its not much of an inconvenience and they do make a sound which you have to expect from the speed and size they are after all. Some comments here about them making cases rattle loudly but this is a problem with the case not the drives - I can just about hear them when they spin up as everything including the drives are pretty much securely fitted in my case. You can always purchase dampners (rubber rings that you place between the drive and the case) to stop this they are only a couple of quid and can purchase them from Amazon too.
