Default How are those Seagate 1.5TB? Reliable?

So anyone here own one of those 1.5TB from seagate? How have you used them? do they make clunk sound after a few months of usage??

Hard to resist the seagate deal at newegg.ca seagate 1.5tb for $147.22 shipped

And the deadline for 5 year warranty is january 9 from what it said on our forums
The 7200.12 500 platers are out too.

In need of more HDD space, only got 6% left on the WD640

Get a 1TB Samsung F1, or a WD Black. I'm not fond of the Seagates. My 750 7200.11 goes clunk in the night, and day and night, etc. Then you can take that WD 250 IDE out of your machine. ;)

I have 4 of them in my server and have nothing but good things to say about them. I've used Seagate for everything I have ever built and oddly enough, the only time I had issues was when I went to another brand

The "Klonk" are not specific to the 500GB or 1.5TB, it can happen with any size. From what I recall there were some reliability issues with the TB ones mostly performance wise (firmware) to which Seagate acknowledged but I haven't heard of any other problems - as far as the "klonk" better RMA your drive, because if you hear that day and night, it's definately not normal, you have a bad drive.
