Reviews and Problems with Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
Showing 1-10 of 11
replacement NAS drives
19 May 2014
Summary: I have a classic Infrant NAS, love it and it uses this brand of drive (although I originally started with 250gx4 and upgraded to 1tx4) and they perform solid and last a reasonable amount of time for drives that are worked extensively and constantly 24/x as part of a NAS but they do rise in SMART sector relocation counts fairly rapidly (2+ / day) once you reach about 1-1.5 year of service. Not the greatest performance record but certainly not the worst for a work horse.
Summary: Worked ok for a while Now the drive fail after 3 months only, I should have exchanged it when I ran CrystalDiskInfo showing high number of reallocated sector and head access errors! Now I have to throw 12$ to RMA the drive!!!
Seagate needs to take this one back to the drawing

Summary: This is the second Seagate drive I have bought that constantly clicks. THe first one started after about a week. This one started right out of the box. After downloading Seagate's Seatools, which they claim will stop any problems, the drive continued to click just as before. Seems this is an ongoing problem that has yet to be resolved.
Summary: I received the drives early Sept. They are working great so far. I gave high reviews for them except overall satisfaction because when the drives arrived in the box, it was not properly secured except for a big wad of paper. Electronics and being thrown around in a box generally don't mix very well. So check the drives out by using chkdsk prior to use.
Summary: Also meine Meinung zu dieser Platte ist zweigeteilt. Habe zwei von denen verbaut. Die erste (von Alternate) ist super leise und kühl, woraufhin ich mir eine weitere zugelegt habe. Jedoch musste ich diese dann umtauschen weil sie ein unangenehmes, pfeifendes Laufgeräusch veruhrsachte. Nach dem Umtausch war das Problem zwar besser aber immernoch nicht zufriedenstellend und nicht vergleichbar mit meine ersten Platte.
