Good product, but setup was a bit time consuming

FSBassman "Fred", Amazon

  • Summary: Good product, but setup was a bit time consuming. After some googling I had to use "diskpart extend file system" command from the command line to get the drive's full capacity, which showed correctly in windows disk management but not in My Computer. Boot up with a boot disk or windows disk to access the command prompt. This is a windows glitch and most likely not related to drive. The following link is for XP but worked for Win7 also.

So far so good!

  • Summary: I purchased 12 of these drives. I admit to some trepidation since Seagate drives have a reputation for a high incidence of DOA, but they were all installed and operating with no issues out of the box. They do run a little warmer than my other drives. I have WD 3TB drives that run 28-29C, and Seagate 3TB that run 32-33C. These run at 40-43C. I'll update this review if I see any problems.

The 6TB drive is a very large, reasonably priced drive.

Joseph R. Norman "bnorman", Amazon

  • Summary: This is specifically for the 6 TB drive. The mounting arrangement is not an issue in my enclosure so that is not a negative to me but others have complained about it so be sure and be aware of the particulars. I bought one a number of months ago and the installation was one of the easiest I have had and has worked well so I recently bought two more and installed them and all seemed OK until I started to transfer data and it was excruciatingly slow.

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

d arivas, Amazon

  • 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.

May not fit your drive bay if it required use of middle mounting holes

Jaime Moreno, Amazon
9 July 2014
  • Summary: Oh yeah and if anyone is considering the 6TB there's several major differences from previous 4TB Seagate's I own: #1 runs about 6C hotter i.e. 37C at load vs 31C for 4TB drive. #2 missing holes in the middle of drive for mounting so may be a problem for some. Apparently they add an extra platter to hit 6TB so that's why they had to get rid of middle holes since there was no space left for them and probably why it runs hotter too.
