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.

High failure rate with drive

GJG, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: I've had this drive just a short time when it began to click at spin-up, a bad sign. It immediately became unrecognizable to the OS. A little searching showed this to be an all too common problem. Don't risk it. One star is still too much for this drive.

Four drives failed

John Petrula, Amazon
7 February 2011
  • Summary: Four of these drives failed the SeaTools diagnostic out of the box. Period I have exclusively purchased Seagate drives for many years. Seagate needs to thoroughly review their entire QC department in China.

Not reliable for storage, not fast enough for capture.

Max Grodty "Max Grodty", Amazon

  • Summary: ORIGINAL REVIEW JANUARY 2011: I bought the 2TB Seagate "green" drive for capturing video from my VCR tapes to convert them to AVI for editing. The drive was a little too slow however and kept dropping regions from long video captures.

Done With Seagate

Walters Judson Group "BOSTON DANIEL", Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: We purchase so many of these drives, our accounting department lost track. Many - and I mean Many! have gone bad. We installed 2 of them on one of our office systems and both went dead after 4 months. Overall, about 120 went to the click of death nightmare for many customers.

Plagued with problems, do your research!

mr_mich, Amazon
7 December 2010
  • Summary: Hopefully you guys do more research than I did when I bought one of these with my NAS. I chose it because of its low power consumption...it's the lowest, 0 watts because it died after a couple of months.

  • Summary: 1 month after purchasing an 1.5TB External Seagate hard drive with this disk installed inside, I could hear some thicks and weird noises from the drive and finally the malfunction. The drive stopped and then continued working and finally stopped completely!

Bought 2 - now i'm in a pickle

Jay, Amazon
29 September 2010
  • Summary: Ok, I got 2 of these a few months ago. The clicking has started, smartctl is reporting seek errors, read errors and high fly writes. Thanks seagate. One drive is a backup for the other - and I thought it was the right thing to do but both are failing the same way - at the same time.

I am so dissappointed

Matthew Robinson "mrclubb", Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this drive and proceeded to transfer data from three other hard drives. I had read about the failure due to bad firmware and confirmed that the drive i purchased was not suspect to this problem. I transferred 700GB of data and within 2 weeks was able to access none of it.

WARNING! Do not buy this drive.

Patrick E. Murray "pemurray", Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: BUYER BEWARE! Stay away from this product. I purchased this drive in February and within one month it had a catastrophic mechanical failure. It was also diagnosed with corrupt firmware. This is the worst hard drive I have ever owned.
