Not New, But Appears To Be Gently Used

IT Guy, Amazon
6 April 2015
  • Summary: Drive arrived in a sealed anti-static bag, but upon opening was clearly not new (residue from stickers/sticky tape was evident on the drive cover). Was nervous about the condition of the drive and the number of hours logged.

It's not graceful but it gets the job done well.

That Guy from Seattle, Amazon

  • Summary: Very large capacity and high performance, but just realize a few minor gotchas: 1) It's not very quiet compared to it's Seagate competitors. In very quiet rooms you can hear the platters wind up and down (and I mean *very* quiet), but beyond that you can hear the heads slam around not unlike hard...

UnRaid - Sure

daniel tucker, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I run a small 26 tb unraid server. I mix the hds as much as I can. None have given me the slightest problems. I've precleared three of these and no errors. So, I'm happy.

Good performance

  • Summary: The HDD performs well, generally at 25-75 MBs read and write speeds. Not the fastest HDD out there but fast enough for anything I need. I now use it as a backup drive for other drives. has lasted about 8 months so far with no sign of any problems

Stashed for my Synology server

C. N. Dadd, Amazon
21 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as a spare disk for my Synology Diskstation, which has 5 of these in it already. If one fails, this will be my replacement for it. Fingers crossed the current RAID setup lives on happily so I'll never need this one.

  • Excerpt: Купил сегодня 20.07.2012 сходу закинул 120 гигов данных. Пока ничего не кряхтит не шумит. Надеюсь прослужит долго. Если появятся глюки отпишусь.
  • Pros: Объем. Тихий, холодный (34С), быстрый.
  • Cons: В системе показывает объем 1,81 ТВ, нормально это или нет не знаю. Иногда чувствуется небольшая вибрация.

  • Excerpt: Надо сразу писать что подключение по сата3 чисто эффект плацебо.Ибо по скорости тоже что и сата2 и у меня даже на сата2 и по быстрее будет.И еще на сата3 темпа датчик глючит и смарт не видно.На сата2 и темпа и смарт все работает.Кеш 64 хотя не все его проги видят.
  • Pros: Цена, объем, темпа низкая. Совместимость с сата2.
  • Cons: Ненадежные. 2 купил оба брак.Поменял на новые 2. У старых один с бад секторами другой головку себе сломал и потом при восстановление все сектора доп израсходовал.
