The Seagate of today is not the same Seagate of old, unfortunately. While they were once my favorite company when it came to hard drives, there has definitely been a drop in quality the last couple years. Also, the way they are marketing their current line of hard drives is atrocious. No specs listed on the packaging, mixing older technology drives in with new & selling them in indistinguishable packaging, etc.
I won't buy another Seagate drive until they mend their misleading ways.
