I just got myself a Seagate 1.5TB internal SATA hard drive a couple of nights ago. Best Buy was selling the hard drive for 134.99 USD on their website, so I drove over to my local store and picked one up. When I got to Best Buy the hard drive was listed for 149.99, so I was a little worried, but I brought it over to customer service and told them that the Best Buy website listed it for less, and they honored that price.
The drive is 1.5TB with a 32 MB cache and 7,200 rotational speed. It connects by SATA interface and comes with a SATA cable, as well as a power adapter, to connect the drive to old school molex connectors. It also includes a small manual that explains how to install the new drive and use the Utility Software that comes on the included CD-Rom.
Now, 1.5TB might seem like a lot of hard drive space, and it is, but I really don’t enjoy moving all my data over from one hard drive to another each time I upgrade my drives. So when I get a new hard drive I tend to go a little bigger than may be necessary at the time.
I am going to install the Seagate 1.5TB drive into my Dell XPS 410 as a second hard drive and use a 750GB hard drive as my primary drive, for a total of 2.25TB. That should be enough storage for a couple more years. I guess I will install the drive today. Wish me luck.
