selling my Seagate 500Gb Barracuda 7200.9 PATA/IDE hdd. no bad sectors, under local warranty till Sept 2010 (verified online via Seagate website). previously used in my NAS setup.

will also throw in 2 freebies :)
1. Zippy's 3.5" usb 2.0 external hdd casing
2. IDE-to-SATA converter for those of you who want to hook up the hdd internally via your mobo's sata ports

asking price is Rs 6k plus shipping for the whole package :hap2:
local mumbai-based buyers preferred.

What are the temps like on the 500GB? Have you tried it anytime in an external casing? Am interested but am in B'lore. Worried about couriers :( esp for critical items like HDDs.

it does run pretty warm... though it hasn't quite been a problem for me using it 24/7 in the external casing as my rigs are usually running in AC room

i haven't couriered stuff like hdd before, but i think others have done so without any problems... if u're really keen, i'll make sure the thing gets packed properly with lotsa padding...

i wasn't aware that 12k is still the market rate for 500Gb hdd... i thought prices have fallen recently and now u can get a brand new 500Gb hdd for around 8k...

there are absolutely no problems with the hdd... u can run any diskcheck utility and you won't find any bad sectors etc... besides, it's still under seagate warranty in india till Sep 2010...

anyway, TechHead has already reserved the hdd for collection next month when he comes back to mumbai... :hap2:

^^What you originally thought was correct, a new Seagate 500GB HDD with 5-years warranty can be had for 8K..Confirmed.

Congrats for your sale :)

Sorry for the slight OT, but is this the 7200.10? Coz I didn't think there was a 7200.9 500GB seagate disk.

And, AMd4Life, is that price for 7200.9 or 7200.10?
