I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I have a stash of porn videos that I need to fast forward to the money shot and the Firecuda SSD will definitely fast forward my videos much quicker and smoother than a traditional spinning hard disk drive.

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because my old processor has been humbled for too long with an old and slowly hard drive and it would be time to "revitalize" somehow, not only to increase the capacity but also the speed of work.

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I'm sooooooooooo tired of dealing with slow noisy spinners and could really use a 1TB SSD drive for the capacity as well as being a silent drive.
The review shows this drive to be at the top of it's class and couldn't think of a better drive to incorporate into my main daily system. Not to mention that there is no way I can afford to purchase such a drive at this time in my life!!!!!

Oh wow, we have an official giveaway! And I nearly missed it! :rockout: :rockout: :rockout: :rockout:

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because my tiny orphaned web/mail server needs a transplant. He is only 3 years old, and already had its HDD surgically replaced twice.
Seagate, you are his only hope. Don't let the poor little thing end its existence in a dusty closet, save him with a shiny reliable SSD... :cry::cry::cry:

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I'm from the generation that grew up with HDDs 1001 times smaller than the current ones and just as many times slower :ohwell:.
And I always feel the need for extra~space and speed as much as possible :)

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I am disabled and can rarely afford upgrades...buying a 1TB SSD is basically unreachable for me. Also...I've been having a really tough time lately, an ex girlfriend recently ran me over with her car (yes, actually) and decimated my left ankle and foot. Had to have surgery, and I've been in a cast for the past almost 3 months, and now have an aircast, and months of rehab before I'll be walking without crutches or a cane...and even then I will probably never be back to 100% on that leg. I spend most of my time in my room on my PC, since I can't really do much else right now. Would definitely appreciate the SSD! Can show pics of my surgery scars if anyone is interested lol

Good luck everyone!!!

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because I'm still running a 120GB OCZ Agility 3 as main drive, plus a WD Blue 1TB HDD, my poor PC is "obsolete" by today's standards(save for the GPU which i managed to upgrade before the qurantine and huge devaluation that followed, which more than doubled the price in local currency) and since i live in a 3rd world country ruled by horrible governments with terrible laws(50% custom duties, plus lots of fantasy taxes and taxes on taxes) and are in a deep economic crises(we have 45+% YtY devaluation, and that was before covid) there will be no upgrades of any sort for the long future, a SSD would help me move those games from the HDD to the SSD

I need the Seagate FireCuda 120 SSD 1TB because... I ran out of the previous ones.

My biggest HDD died this summer – 2TB Seagate, after running it daily for 7 years. I tried to get it back running, but the weak sectors were spreading, it had enough. I have about 6-8 old Seagate drives (80 to 160 GB, one 400 GB and these still work even after 10-14 years, but alas, they are mostly IDE, so out of that collection, only one two 80GBs and one 160GB are usable).

So I went and bought a 6TB (Seagate!) external drive now, since it was on sale, but it mostly just filled with backups and cold data. I quickly found that it isn't really possible to do my sort of work on a desktop PC just with 500 GB internal storage – which is all my otherwise newest internal drive has - that's a Samsung 500GB from 2008 btw. Which isn't Seagate but incidentally, Samsung's HDD business was bought by Seagate, so it is a honorary one! I used to use a very nice (quiet, I love 5400/5900rpm) 1TB Barracuda LP too, but that one sadly also malfuncioned after several years of service. That one is a nice guy though - it only creates bad sectors on writes, but once it writes successfully, the data stay there. Checked after some 5 years recently and it was all readable.

See where I am getting? Look how loyal I was to the brand :shameless nudge&wink:

That is, until I had to start saving up money for mortgage. That is always the end of PC parts buying for you :)

P.S. I never registered until now but long time TPU reader.
