My 250GB SATA II Hard Disk Upgraded to 300GB SATA II

by Shivaranjan on August 27, 2006


Guys as you know recently I got myself a new computer, along with that I got myself a 250GB SATA ll drive. But due to some strange reasons (which god alone knows) it developed bad sectors. :-( So I took it to Seagate service centre in Chennai. There I deposited my drive and got it after a week, but to my surprise they handed me a 300GB SATA ll drive. When asked why I was given 300GB instead of 250GB, I was told that there was no 250GB replacement hard disk so they gave me 300GB. For the past one week I was benchmarking and doing tests to make sure that there is no problem in this drive. I feel that lady luck is partly smiling at me. :D

Since I have gained 50GB of more disk space here is my total storage capacity:

Seagate 300 GB SATA-II 7200 rpm with 16 MB cache Hard disk drive
Seagate 200 GB PATA 7200 rpm with 8 MB cache Hard disk drive (Working as External HDD)
Seagate 160 GB SATA 7200 rpm with 8 MB cache Hard Disk Drive

Total Capacity: 660GB

This is how my 300GB Seagate ST3300622AS SATA II drive looks like:
