The Power of One
Barracuda hard drives give you the Power of One. One hard drive platform for every desktop storage application. One drive with trusted performance, reliability and simplicity and capacity.
Your drive is up to 45% faster than the last generation thanks to Seagate OptiCache™ technology. OptiCache™ technology combines the latest advances in hard drive microprocessors, DRAM and proprietary caching algorithms resulting in great performance improvements for you.
You don’t have worry about the transition to Advanced Format, 4K technology with Seagate SmartAlign™ technology. With SmartAlign™, 4K drives look and act just like legacy 512 byte sector hard drives which makes your adoption of Advanced Format – simple.
You get reliable read/write performance even in tough operating environments with Seagate AcuTrac™ technology. AcuTrac™ represents new advanced hard drive technology that can accurately control reading and writing on these “nano-sized” tracks spinning at 7200 RPM, even in high touch environments, like an all-in-one PC with loud music booming through the speakers.
Green where it counts
Barracuda desktop drives are produced using the most sophisticated manufacturing process in the industry, with a focus on environmental stewardship.

Have you experienced any issues with the SSDs besides this error? This article can help clarify some of the most common misconceptions about SMART data. If you aren't experiencing any issues other than that message I would not worry about it. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
I too am considering this upgrade to SSD. This may seem trivial but try control panel, programs and features, windows features and untick internet explorer then reboot. Upon reboot go and retick the box to reinstall that feature. This has worked for me in the past when ie stopped functioning. Good Luck. Please let us know the results.
I have a Gateway NV59c laptop, and on this site I have a compatibility guarantee for the Crucial MX100 500 GB SSD I picked up.
I used Acronis to clone the drive. When I hook it up via USB with the Crucial adapter kit, I can see the drive is cloned. However when I remove my current HDD and replace it with the SSD, the computer doesn't even get to the BIOS screen, it just shows the Gateway splash, says hit F2 for Setup, but it won't respond to F, it shuts off and restarts. Rinse, repeat.
Any ideas? I don't want to return the SSD, I want to get it to work.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your HDD. It does sound like there is an issue with the drive that is causing the issues that you have experienced. At this time I would recommend contacting Seagate directly as they do offer support on their drives. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause, but they will be able to offer better assistance and help you out with a warranty if necessary.
