Warning: Seagate substituting different drive as HD204UI Now that Seagate has finished acquiring and digesting Samsung’s Hard Drive business, they have started selling Chinese produced “ST2000DL004” Baracuda Green drives with “Samsung HD204UI” markings and only 1 year warranties. The genuine Samsung HD204UI drives come with 3 year warranties. If you still want buy an HD204UI, be sure it is not some remarked Seagate drive. The Seagate drives are reported to produce loud “clicking”, slow formatting and other mechanical clues that it’s not the same…

Great Drive I purchased 5 of these and put 4 of them into a RAID 10 configuration. Average speed is 170MB/sec over the entire volume. The single drive averaged about 105MB/sec. These drives are VERY fast and are equal to or faster than many of the 7200 RPM versions currently available. The good news is that the Samsung HD204UI drives are much cooler and require a lot less power than most other drives.
