The server is an extremely dirty prep room setting in a plant nursery

Norm Cimon "programmer", Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: Very reasonable price, and very basic. Purchased two of these, one as a replacement and one as a spare, for a customer's RAID array. The server is an extremely dirty prep room setting in a plant nursery. That makes the RAID array imperative along with backup operations for key files. These drives are the perfect vehicle for creating the necessary redundancy on that system. Plug and play for reasonably priced and adequately performing hard drives.

Great Drive

Richard G Smith, Amazon
28 May 2014
  • Summary: This is a great little drive. Very easy to pop into a reclaimed system, load an OS onto it, and repurpose it as an educational kiosk. Very reasonable price and a solid product.

Solid NAS HDD

6 May 2014
  • Summary: These have worked well in our NAS systems. With the warranty originally at 5 years, the thing will most likely die before then, getting you a replacement in time.

Drive has a short electrical

Richard Dourth, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: I build custom PCs and this look like a good deal to keep cost down for a friend. the drive arrived to my shock it wasn't factory pack and i used many of seagate barracudas, so I went ahead and put it on a test bed and the power protection would shut down, I tested it on another pc and the system would shut down with in 2 seconds.

Dell Server replacement

Fred B., Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Was able to get this faster then asking Dell for parts and at 1/2 the cost. Dell typically has the same label except with a Dell logo and the statement about only Dell certified parts will keep the warranty intact, the warranty expired a couple of months ago so no sense in paying an extra $100 for a commodity disk drive.

Seagate drive works well

T. Evans, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: The drive I purchased from AMTECH is as described: a new drive in manufacturer's packaging. But the picture of the drive showed it in an HP tray (for MSA2000 series storage array). Speaking with AMTECH, I learned that Amazon supplies the pictures.

Just what I expected

lebowitzit, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive for one reason: I needed to replace a failed hard drive in a low-end network server's RAID, and this drive is identical to the still working drive (as well as to the one that failed). Predictably enough, the drive works well, and the server's performance is back to normal. Given the age of the server, I'd say that the performance is about as good as it can be, but that has more to do with the RAID controller than the drives attached to it.
