No Bargain Refurb

Michael W., Newegg
2 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.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Dead On Arrival

Tried It

Mr. K., Newegg
20 November 2012
  • Pros: None, DOB, Dead Out of The Box
  • Cons: Dead out of the box, was building a new rig and I preorder parts. When I went to use this drive it was dead, tried other drives and they worked. RMA the drive back to Seagate. They sent me a Re-certified drive (USED), not only that but it was not even the same interface. ST31000528AS SATA 3.0 GB. E-Mails have not been answered, if I wanted a used drive I would have bought a used drive.

Died after 2 months

Dianne W., Newegg
3 October 2012
  • Pros: Fast. Good price.
  • Cons: About a month after use I got a random crash. I paid no mind to it and kept going. A few days ago I got another crash....then the next day another crash and my system no longer even detects the drive at all. I managed to get it booted up but after 6 hours it began going so slow that I had to power it down. Upon boot up the drive was no longer detected and could not boot windows. I got it going once more, long enough to back up some essentials and run a seatools test (...

Constant lock ups

Adam J., Newegg
17 June 2012
  • Summary: Drive does not have a long lifespan.
  • Pros: Cheap (for the time)
  • Cons: Causes programs to lock up randomly for a couple of minutes. Lock ups didn't show up until I installed drive. I have unhooked the drive and the lock went away.

SMART failure in less then a half year

Richard C., Newegg
30 January 2011
  • Pros: While it worked, it was good, but less then 6 months operating time is bad.
  • Cons: I bought this early August for a computer I built from scratch, and the hard drive has an excessive amounts of reallocated sectors, which means that a larger portion then normal of the hard drive has gone unreadable/unfixable. I'm very disappointed, Seagate is usually a good brand for me, I used one of their hard drives for over 5 years, an old 60GB drive from 2000.
