  • 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

  • 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.

Nice HDD

Cimmay R., Newegg

  • Summary: Same drive as the OEM Barracuda ST1000DM003, which of course costs less. I'm out of the SSD market for a while, until some favorable reviews start showing up. Weird how they are so popular, but failure rate is out of control.
  • Pros: Thinner than the older drives, light weight. Single platter for 1 TB. Two year warranty. Has a good package to store the drive it replaces.
  • Cons: SATA cable is non-locking. Tough to get Windows 7 installed, had to try 5 times to get the disk recognized. Said the NTFS is the wrong version, then suddenly it worked.

Perform well

  • Summary: I have dozens of these 1TB hard drives installed in various external enclosures, RAID5 arrays, and NAS units. They do the job and most of them seem to last about 3 years of 24x7 operation before they fail. I can live with that considering the price.

This is a solid drive

  • Summary: This item works well. It is a good replacement drive. Seagate makes it easy to return drives if they fail during the warranty, very simple exchange, they provide the packing ... you pay $10 for the shipping the new drive arrives ... that is it. Takes a few minutes to set up by phone.

  • Summary: This is the only drive I've had fail on me in ~8 years, and some of those that are still working as I type this are both older and have been under constant use since day 1.
  • Pros: Lasted through ~6 years of intermittent use, so I suppose it technically meets minimum expectations.
  • Cons: Recently began seeing steadily increasing read/write error rates day by day, along with intermittent full on disconnections of the drive by the OS. This drive spent the vast majority of it's life as a backup, powered off and fully disconnected - it was nowhere near it's MTBF and should not have f...
