Summary: I've given this 4 stars because my use for it is not very demanding. I don't use it as a primary drive but rather as library storage. It is one of several Seagate STnn00DL drives I currently use for backup storage of Pro Tools sessions. I have 1TB and 2TB models as well and they have all been 100% reliable in daily use as 2nd and 3rd copies of my recording drives. Quiet, cool running and fast, they are all used as bare externals inserted and removed every day.
Summary: I bought this drive for a new computer we were setting up..worked well for approx. 2 weeks and then started this screeching sound. We googled this product and found out we were not alone..You Tube even has a video someone put up to show others what happened to him.We were also told that the screeching was the sound of a drive dying.Good Luck. Google it!
Summary: On first turning on the drive beeped 10-11 times then refused to do anything else. Seller refused return on the basis that more than 90 days had elapsed since purchase. Avoid anyone who sells you a hard drive on the basis it will only last 3 months. This is the latest in a string of problems I have had with Amazon in the last few months. They are not the company they used to be. Back to Ebuyer for me.
Summary: Installation of the new Seagate drive went smoothly in Sept. 2012, but started to give Smart Status Bad in Oct 2012. I had been in the process of transferring files from my old PC using DVDs, and noticed abnormally high vibration from the internal DVD drive. I plugged in a USB external DVD re-writer and stopped using the offending internal DVD drive.
Summary: Über die Hardware brauchen wir hier nicht reden. Die Platte macht das wa sie soll!!!!!!!! Das die Platte bei mir im funktionstüchtigen Zustand angekommen ist, ist aber reiner Zufall. Das Teil liegt bei mir im Briefkasten in einer Plastiktüte! Lediglich von einer Lage Luftpolsterfolie geschützt.
