If you buy from "Top Gear, Inc", you'll end up with a "Certified Repaired HDD", and it will most likely fail immediately.

Robert, Amazon
29 March 2015
  • Summary: I received a "Certified Repaired HDD" that immediately failed and screwed me in the worst way. This notification is helpfully written in small print on the hard drive label and conveniently left out of the product description, describing it as "New" and "not refurbished".

Avoid this at all costs!

  • Summary: As others have mentioned, these drives are total garbage. I have never had a hard drive fail like this -- in less than two years it is just done. What's worse is that they claim it is out of warranty. Really? A hard drive isn't guaranteed to last more than 2 years? GFY!

Kelly Breiner, Amazon

Broke down

David, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this drive about 8 months ago. I just installed it a couple of weeks ago. It lasted a little over a week and died. I am going to call Seagate and see about having it replaced. From what I have read it is going to cost me shipping and I get a refurbished one in return.

ScanDisk and MFT Errors

Linda Najarian, Amazon
11 April 2011
  • Summary: Keep getting corrupt sectors and now the MFT is gone. Had to use Data Recovery to extract my data. Even though i can soft repair and reformat the drive, i dont consider it reliable anymore. I bought this drive in Oct 2012 and its already out-of-warranty in Jan 2014.
