Good deal but you should note that price is AFTER REBATE.

Looking around, this only has a 1-year warranty, and a lot of people making reviews at Newegg seem to be mistaking this drive for another one, giving it 1-egg reviews for failures. For $70 it seems like a decent deal, might bite.

Wow, didn't notice the one year warranty. Pass. But this portends better deals or longer-warranty drives at the same price in the BF timeframe.

The warranty is one year and it's rated for a use case of 2400 hours per year (6 and a half hours per day). That comes to 3 cents per hour of operation while under warranty. Compare that with the WD1502FAEX bought from Newegg rated for continuous duty with a five year warranty for 159.99 about a third of a cent per warrantied hour of operation. I guess the Seagate might make sense for light duty, if you aren't planning on keeping your computer very long.
