Asking me to review a product after only two weeks! I would be extremely disappointed if the product had already developed a fault.

Phillip, County Durham IT Professional

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Quick, large capacity drive and cheap
Bad points:
The drive was purchased to replace a failed drive of the same model; before 2 others failed. I am now starting to regret sticking with Seagate - the Toshiba drive is a bit more expensive but a lot more reliable if you search the specs.

Nik, Bracknell IT Professional

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Fast, quiet, exactly what you'd expect from a good hard drive.
Bad points:
I had a little trouble getting the Windows 7 installer to see the full 2.7TB. After a little experimentation I ended up doing the following:

1. Boot from the Windows 7 DVD in UEFI mode (setting the boot order was not sufficient, I needed to explicitly boot from the DVD in UEFI mode using the boot menu)
2. When the Windows 7 installer asks you to select a partition for the installation, press SHIFT+F10 to open a command prompt
3. Type 'diskpart' and press enter
4. Type 'select disk 0' and press enter
5. Type 'convert gpt' and press enter
6. Type 'clean' and press enter
7. Exit diskpart and the command prompt
8. Continue with the Windows 7 installation
