Not a 750GB. Everyone recommends this, but I don't know if many people have purchased one like I have.
It is shipped with bad firmware and which causes the cache to be 0 MB, so you instantly have to write down you S/N and call tech support. I've been pretty ****ed at Seagate for this mess. And the firmware that supposedly works (not nearly as good as on the 500 GB models) is just in BETA.
There is a reason why the 7200.11 750GB costs almost the same as the 7200.11 500GB.
