Notorious for Failing

Matthew L., Newegg
3 weeks ago
  • Summary: Would not recommend.
  • Pros: Good Paperweight. Seagate Warranty was good at replacing them and then re-replacing them. I've literally had 14 fail on me within a couple years.
  • Cons: Notorious for Failing within the 5 year warranty. Get the 7200.12 revisions instead.

  • Pros: Quite, fast

Happy owner of over 90 Seagate Drives

Anonymous, Newegg
3 October 2015
  • Summary: If you are not a tech person and just need to replace the junk drive you currently own, one of these in any size offered will be good enough. As a note, whenever someone asks me to swap drives for them or "fix their computer" when it is a failed drive, I tell them to buy a seagate drive because I am...
  • Pros: +48TB worth of these drives running 24/7 in one rig for years now and the first (and oldest one) is just starting to fail. (just cloned it last night) I can't be sure exactly how long (because I am not concerned nor do I worry about my seagate drives) but the oldest one (only 1.5 tb) has lasted o...
  • Cons: Reading reviews where people complain that a 4 tb drive is not exactly 4 tb not paying any mind to the fact that the size difference has to do with the difference between the way a HDD manufacturer and the way windows calculates storage capacity and then claiming they have a high level of tech ex...

User Review

christian m., Newegg
29 September 2015
  • Pros: Bought 2 and both were worked great, one died after 2 years which is not bad and the other is still going. Gave it a 4 egg review because I have older WD that are still runnning.
  • Cons: None, mechanical HDDs can fail and 1 failed after 2 years, not bad.

59,000 hours

Michael F., Newegg
27 August 2015
  • Summary: The drive failed after about 7 years (purchased in 2008) with 59,000 hours on the drive. So I can't hardly complain about the drive, the price, performance or reliability. With large drives it is best practice to either do backups or mirror drives.
  • Pros: These are pretty good drives overall. They function well have have decent performance.
  • Cons: Many of these drives suffer from high fly writes and not uncommon to see bad sectors. As with all high capacity drives it is wise to monitor SMART status. Does run hot if not well ventilated.

Was fine at first....

hearthingkin, Amazon
20 August 2015
  • Summary: worked just fine for over two years(warranty period), and then just a few months out of warranty, BOOM, failing linear, butterfly, and random reads. In 20+ years of computer ownership its my first failed HDD, so maybe I'm just spoiled, but I definitely wasn't happy with this bit of "fun" that I had...

Thumbs up.

Jason L., Newegg
9 August 2015
  • Summary: A very popular drive. Most retail chains even stock them. Can't go wrong.
  • Pros: This hard disk comes retail and ready to use. Whisper quiet with classic Seagate construction. An excellent buy for those looking outside of the SSD park.
  • Cons: None at all.
