Hmm I usually multi-pass "wipe" before running the first manufacturer test on it. I'll try this experiment when I go for another hard drive.

Back on topic with this particular HDD, I'd like to see how a 1-platter version of this drive holds up in testing, given that I only need "performance" storage for about ~250 GB or so of stuff (games + SSD overflow). I'm sure this drive will work wonders if I only use ~8% of its capacity but I'd rather put money into a small HDD and better SSD than a lower tier SSD and not use >2.5TB of my HDD.

If Seagate updates their Momentus XT 2.5" line with this technology I'll pick it up for my lappy the first chance I get.
