No Bargain Refurb

Michael W., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Pros: Cheap - I've had an excellent history with Seagate
  • Cons: Drive has been throwing out errors since taken out of the box, Have run a number of good hard drive tools on the beast (including) Seagate's. They report errors then that the problems (bad sectors) have been repaired. New errors pop up every day or so. Impossible to trust the drive at all. Occasionally has gone "missing" so the system(s) can't see it.

DOA Drive

Robert D., Newegg
16 October 2013
  • Summary: Spent the better part of a day checking and testing this drive to figure out why it wasn't being seen by the BIOS and computer. I know I should have found it sooner, however, I tried multiple combinations of cables just to be sure.

Works but Clicks

Ryan H., Newegg
28 June 2013
  • Pros: Nice slim drive design. Pretty lightweight compared to other drives I've come across in that form factor. Good price.
  • Cons: This drive clicks almost every time it's accessed. Its the sound from the head parking when going into power save or idle state. It's extremely annoying. It can be heard over an A.C running and computer fan noise (about 6 fans). BEWARE! Seagate's website states this is normal hard drive sound and functionality. I've got a 10k rpm western digital velocitraptor and a western digital caviar black edition and I've never heard any kind of parking clicks as loud as this dri...

received opened, disturbing

MICHAEL C., Newegg
28 March 2013
  • Pros: Previous Seagate drives have proven to be reliable for me. I like them also because Seagate, at least at this time, doesn't program the firmware to block RAID use, forcing you to buy a more expensive drive.
  • Cons: I just opened the shipping carton from NewEgg. The retail box was inside. The Seagate hologram seal on the retail box was cut open. I called NE to return it but was told they have to open the retail box to record the UPC. (it's on the outside of the box) Then she said they have to open it to record the drive serial number. BUT, the drive was still sealed in the antistatic bag. Maybe they can scan through the bag? Why would they do that when both the UPS and the drive ...
