Did not last 8 months and no replacement.

Robert Beaver "Sam I Am", Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: This item failed in 8 months of light, and I mean light use. Avoid this product, I will update this review once I get information on returns but I'm pretty sure based on other reviews that the replacement will fail in the same time frame. I have had much better luck with model ST31000340AS. Even though they state 3 year warranty, they iterated a 90 warranty in email but it is not on their ad. Buyer beware!!!

Good drive but had some problems

Pen Name, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this drive about 2 years ago and the first one died (with the click of death) after just a week. I got an RMA from Amazon with no problem but then the RMA drive also failed with the click of death after about 6 months. This time I got it replaced through Seagate on warranty and have been running the replacement drive for about 6 months now with no issues.

Drive was a bit slow, and then it died.

D. J. Dahl, Amazon
17 February 2013
  • Summary: I had Seagate send me a replacement drive for my ST31000520AS because the S.M.A.R.T was reporting failure after just under 3 years. There were no signs of failure aside from S.M.A.R.T reporting. Data still read and wrote fine, but I was tired of the S.M.A.R.T report, so I sent it back. The replacement drive Seagate sent me died in a week, it had no symptoms nor warnings, it simply crashed dead.

Good drive that does not last long

fex, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this drive around 1 year ago and I was very happy with the huge capacity (2TB) so I decided to use it as a backup disk and to move data around computers using it with an enclosure. At the beginning it was a dream; files, music, photo, video, everything in a single place, but almost a year later it started to die.

"Clicks incessantly and shuts off randomly..."

  • Pros: No pros whatsoever.
  • Cons: Click of death. Turns off and back on randomly. COMPLETELY untrustworthy and a waste of money.
