ScanDisk and MFT Errors

Linda Najarian, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • 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. If you dont want to throw away your $100, don't buy this drive. Thats not right! Very disappointed!

Avoid at all costs. 120% failure rate!

  • Summary: The online backup vendor Backblaze has released their drive failure statistics recently, and they corroborate my personal experience: two Seagate Green 1.5TB, two failures within a year (you can google the report for more details and information on better products) The newer Seagate drives don't fare that much better, but the 1.5TB has incredibly high failure rates, and coud possibly be the worst drive made in the past 10 years (I won't say "worst drive ever" because I'm...

DO NOT nuy this hard drive

Nicolas, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: I just wanted to share my experience with the potential customers here. I had two of these hard drives set up with a mirroring RAID on my machine for 9 months. After I routinely updated my BIOS they suddenly vanished. I connected them to two other healthy computers, impossible to even see them. I then did some research on the Internet and it looks like a lot of these drives have had major similar issues and apparently their support is ignoring most of the claims.

Different Item In the Box

Kelly Breiner, Amazon
2 May 2013
  • Summary: Ordered this item, a 1.5TB SATA drive, and received something different altogether, a 1TB SAS (serial attached SCSI). Although the outside of the box was marked with the proper part number.

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. I would not recommend the "green" drives. They don't seem to stand up to a lot of use.

Are you kidding me?

Jay, Amazon
2 April 2012
  • Summary: First off, would definitely give this drive zero stars if possible. I have had bad time with seagate cuda's in the past, so much so that I swore them off. Since disk cost is still high due to the flooding and I really needed a bunch of gigs fast/cheap I just got one anyway. Its newer firmware then I have used before so I thought I might have a better time. Nope, had it spinning for like 24 hours straight before it started to beep (lol i am not kidding).
