No matter how you feel about Seagate’s reliability, you have to admit that this is a heck of a deal. For only $129, you get a 1.5TB drive with a 32MB buffer. What a steal! Better hurry, these Amazon deals usually don’t hang around that long.
Update: These drives are among the faulty ones… don’t buy, or return if you did. Or try the firmware update suggested by commenter Anthony below.
