disappointed

Robert McLendon, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: I understood that this drive was a 2.5 but when it got here it was a large size for a tower. I needed this for a lap top.

Bait and switch

Zaturn, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • Summary: I was so frustrated with this company because they baited me and then switch the product which was dead on arrival. Save your money and buy another computer or # Just purchase a tablet like the Kindle Fire7 or HDX.

Not happy with seller working through Amazon

M. Frontiera, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Out of all the sellers I have used at Amazon, Greentech was horrible. Ordered a harddrive for my computer, they sent the wrong one, called Amazon, and contacted the seller. I asked him to send another with a shipping label, ast first he would not, after a week of him emailing me, which I couldn't...

Stay away!

Douglas B., Newegg
31 January 2012
  • Summary: If you're going to get a refurb, get a manufacturer refurb, not a hack job like this!
  • Pros: The units look like hard drives.
  • Cons: The units have so many bad sectors they are completely unusable. "Refurbished" appears to mean "ripped out of a system, physically cleaned, inserted in static bag, shipped to customer". It's painfully apparent that no testing was done whatsoever.

Tired of poor quality hardware . . .

11 January 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this hard drive about a year and one half ago. It has been run very little since I installed it on a very fast gaming box I built since I have been using Linux on an older box mostly. However, it failed without warning recently . . .

  • Summary: Second attempt to get a working HD replacement. First attempt it burns right in my PC. Amazon make a replacement but now the connector is wrong. So now I have 2 HD's in my possesion and neither of which will work in my system. Very frustrating.

big name, small performance

anthony m., Newegg
15 January 2007
  • Summary: tech support was very helpful with this manufacturer, but I would not have known that if there was no problem. If you get this drive, back up everything very frequently.
  • Pros: quiet and quick
  • Cons: It did not work long enough for me to apprecaite the positive aspects. It died. There was no sign of trouble, no noise, error messages, nothing. I turned off the system at the end of the day, turned it back on the next and it simply did not work.

Seagate Warranty is Worthless

Ronald B., Newegg
18 December 2006
  • Summary: Seagate's vaunted five year warranty is not worth the paper it's written on. If I keep paying to ship this drive back to Seagate, at the end of the five years it will be worth $xxx.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: This is the third drive that has died. I learned my lesson this time, didn't install it in a computer, put it in an external enclosure to test it first and it died after a few weeks of super light storage use.

Zero Stars Not Allowed

Big-Z, Amazon
18 March 2006
  • Summary: Not the same number (mine ST3200826AS) but still Seagate 200 gig drives... two failures after a week with each. Third one is now on the way. AVOID large Seagate drives. The web is full of horror stories. But I do not know which large drives are better since I see terrible reviews on most...
