Personally I love the 7200.11 product line from Seagate and I own a drive in this line. The drive performs REALLY well.
However ... please remember that there was a royal cluster f**k with these drives about 1 - 2 years ago. The firmware that shipped with the drives would brick the drive (seemingly at random) on drive power-up 1 time in 10000. The determining factor was where was the last sector written in the drive cacahe (or something really crazy like that). 99.999% of the time everything is fine. But when you sell jillions of drives like Seagate does even a .001% failure rate from a cause like that (bad firmware) causes a HUGE number of irate customers ... and rightly so. The Es.2 poduct line was also affected.
The permanent solution to this problem is to flash the firmware of the drive. Even if the drive is bricked you can still flash the firmware. Then the drive is good "forever" (until mechanical death).
With this drive you should do 1 of the 2 things below.
 With your favorite disk tool (HDDScan, SpeedFan, etc.) determine the firmware revision level of the drive. If it is SD1A or later all is well. I could be wrong and a slightly earlier revision might be OK. Firmware SD17 is the one you for sure need to update. I believe that the current firmware that is available is SD1B. If you need new firmware see  below.
 Visit the web page below and download an ISO that will flash the drive to the latest firmware. I suspect that this tool will also allow examination of what the current firmware is. Download the ISO / burn it to CD / boot the CD. Use the program that the CD boots into to flash the drive to the latest firmware revision. After that ... no problems. It's pretty easy.
In order for the ISO to be able to do its job the 7200.11 dive must be visible to the BIOS (connected to the mobo). The drive cannot be on a different controller (e.g. some RAID card, JBOD card, "extra" SATA card, whatever).
