My Drive - not so good.

Brian S, Amazon
8 September 2015
  • Summary: This is the noisiest drive I've ever had. The clicking during read/writes is constant and loud. I've purchased a number of Seagate drives and haven't had a bad experience in the past so I would consider this a lemon.

Barely Drive

Ralph T Morelli, Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: I was disappointed to find that this drive did NOT include a SATA interface cable; or mounting hardware for that matter. I would have expected AMAZON to make mention of that fact so that I could have ordered a cable at the same time as the drive.

Hard drive

  • Summary: Worked fine and easy to install in the beginning. After about 2 months on my security system it started making a lot of noise. Don't think I would buy this again

Good while it lasted

forusenet "forusenet", Amazon
12 March 2007
  • Summary: Bought this drive primarily for the 5 yr warranty. For the 2 years it was in service, drive was error free and operated relatively noise free. Disk died on me around the 2nd anniversary. Sent to Seagate for data recovery. Balked at the estimate of $1500.

Drive died after 3 months

PurpleJulius, Amazon
25 June 2006
  • Summary: I bought this item in March (not from Amazon), with the 5 year warranty. Worked fine, until it began making a clicking noise, described elsewhere as turning the drive on and off. When the drive was making that noise, it would no longer be detected by windows.

Quiet it is NOT

Amazon
14 May 2006
  • Summary: To my dismay, I discovered that this drive does not support acoustic management modes. Everytime the cache is flushed (which is every 2-3 min or so) I have to put up with what sounds like the buzzing of a large insect trapped inside the computer case.

It will not last....

Don Jose Dela Piaston, Amazon
27 August 2004
  • Summary: Drive has started making suspicious noises, (grinding, laboring..has become slow....), which normally indicate it is on it's way out. I had better hopes, but I doubt it will last a full year.

Good drive, when it worked

Andrew Swanson, Amazon
26 August 2004
  • Summary: Drive ran well when it actually worked. The SATA connection wasn't very good and was very touchy. Got new SATA cables, hoping it was an issue with the cables that came with my mobo, but they didn't work either.
