    But it's a seagate


    and your point is... ?


    I'm an IT engineer. We had a wall made of faulty hard drives (one hdd - one brick).
    Half of the wall were Maxtor HDD's. Until Seagate took over Maxtor. And then.. guess what?


    you started using using actual bricks for building walls instead of hard drives?

    If you've never had a Seagate or Maxtor fail you've either only been doing it ten minutes or you've never bought either brand. I've been building my own computers for over a decade (feeling old now, thanks) and I've had a few of each die on me. I'm just a guy with a desktop. If you're chunking through dozens of desktop and servers, you're going to get dead disks.

    If I bang one of these and 2gd ram into my old dell dimension 2300 would I be able to run an operating system without a 30 sec lag?

    Bang in an SSD then you will get no lag.

    Short answer "No"

    As that answer was not much help to you let me expand on that...The Dell Dimension 2300 cannot handle anything more than 1GB of RAM and has an IDE hard drive connection where as this hard drive has a SATA hard drive connection so you can't really do what you suggest. If you want to speed up your computer I would recommend looking into installing a light weight Linux distribution such as 'Puppy Linux' or 'lubuntu'. Also have a look at the computer's Owner's Manual (ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_desktop/esuprt_dimension_desktops/dimension-2300_Owner%27s%20Manual_en-us.pdf) if you are thinking of upgrading anything. Hope that helps, don't give up on the Dell yet!

    I personally never had a faulty Seagate as well.
    Probably because since Maxtor takeover I started using WD, Hitachi and Samsung only.

    I have used hard drives from just about every manufacturer there has been, and I have had faulty drives from all of them. Until a couple of years ago I was using Samsung, they were cheaper than most, fairly fast, didn't get hot, and didn't make too much noise. I bought this Seagate drive a few weeks ago and have been impressed with the performance. It is faster and quieter than the 5400rpm Samsung drives I've got. It does run a couple of degrees warmer than the Samsungs, and consumes a couple of watts more, but that is not unexpected for a 7200rpm drive. Overall I am very happy with it. How reliable it proves to be remains to be seen of course, but you just have to accept that any mechanical hard drive will fail sooner or later, so you should make regular backups.

    Does Windows 7/8 see this as 1 drive/ 1 partition formatted capacity 2.7tb with no Seagate software needed ?

    Assuming it is GPT formatted rather than MBR, yes.

    I forgot to add for legacy systems no UEFI and just as data storage but yeah GUID partition tables are fine for single partitions on non uefi. Legacy bios MBR boot drive has 2 partitions and you can't boot GPT without EUFI 64bit support*.
