Amazon.com is selling a 1TB Seagate hard drive for $79.99. It’s an OEM drive with 32MB cache and 7200 RPM spindle speed.
This is the same drive that had those problems earlier this year, but the new firmware has supposedly fixed all that bad mojo, so feel free to make this purchase with reckless abandon and copy all your photos and home movies to it without a second thought.
Seriously, though, it should be fine now. I’ve been running this very drive in my file server for a few months without a hitch.
