I installed this on an older IBM computer that had a single 150gb hard drive that was full. My initial plan was to just install the new drive as a secondary drive & move some of my data over to it to free up some space. As I began the project I ran into problems right away with the computer not recognizing the new drive but a quick scan of the instructions (something I seldom like to do) revealed a quick fix which involved putting a jumper (included) on the drive to deal with the older motherboard which worked like a charm. While setting up the new drive (to my surprise) I was offered several choices one of which was to completely cloan the old hard drive via Acronis software which was included. I started this process & basically left my computer thinking this procedure might be done sometime the next day only to come back a short time later to find the drive ready to go. I have no idea how long this took but probably 20 or 30 minutes. Any how with two identical drives now in the computer I tried to set the new drive up as the primary in the computer's bios but couldn't figure this out but I don't think it was an option. So I went back into the computer and switched the cables on the motherboard. Backing up a bit there were only two Sata hard drive connections on my motherboard so I figured the primary drive must have to be in the first slot. At this point I figure why even keep the old hard drive in the computer so I completely removed it, set the new drive up in the same location in the case, closed the case and rebooted. I wrapped the old hard drive up and stuck it in my fireproof safety box and haven't had a problem since. It's been two weeks now and so far still no problems

After doing some online research and determining that I wanted the ST3500641AS-RK drive, I found it for a good price at staples.com. Not wanting to wait for shipping, I picked one up at the store instead. So far so good.
After installing it in the computer I noticed that it was recognized by the system as a ST3500418AS. Big differences between the two: a) 3 year warranty on the 418AS vs the 5 year warranty on the 641AS-RK b) no NCQ on the 418AS.
Looking on the site, there is only a small price difference between the two models, while elsewhere the price gap is larger. Hmnn....

      It is what you'd expect from a hard drive in this price range. It seems to be working well thus far and runs smoothly loading everything on windows 8. No complaints.

        very good for the price, and in an emergency a good buy. If your desktop hard drive goes out this would be ideal if you want to get your system going again with minimal cost. the performance has been good and I have not yet run into any issues with my new hard drive. I do trust Seagate hard drives, as from experience they have been around a long time and have always bettered themselves year after year. I will say though if you have the extra money, you should consider an SSD hard drive over these older 5400 and 7200 hundred rpm drives.
