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.

high failure rate for these drives

Mike, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: Either these drives were siblings to the Barracuda 7200.11 series that were ubiquitously known for failures or are close cousins. These drives run fairly hot considering their speed (5900rpm instead of 7200rpm). There have been multiple firmware updates provided for this generation of drive in an attempt to mitigate hardware issues.

  • Summary: I bought this drive "knowing" that it would be considerably slower than any SATA drive I have owned. I was right... Because of the lonnnng hang time, I feel like I have stepped back into 1996 with the slowest of slow 8GB IDE drive. Here are my specs: Intel E8400/3.00GHZ - 8GB RAM - 1GB Radeon 4760 (PCI EX) - 3 1TB hard drives of various flavors from Western Digital, Samsung (will never buy another again = went through 3 in the span of a month) and a Hitachi...

Bought 2 - One's failing after 2 years.

  • Summary: OK, I've had 2 years with these and on the plus side they've worked perfectly in RAID on my NAS. However, one has since failed SMART with bad sectors so I'll be looking at running SeaTools to see if I can fix the issue if not will request a replacement from Seagate.

  • Summary: Liebe Leser und Leserin, heute berichte ich euch über eine interne Festplatte von Hersteller Seagate. Die interne Festplatte Seagate Barracuda LP 5900.12 finde ich zumindest preiswert, weil durch die Flutkatastrophe in Tschechien die Festplatten zu teuer gesetzt sind.

Gute Platte - schlechter Service

Martolino, Amazon
16 October 2010
  • Summary: Zuerst das positive: Die Platte läuft jetzt einwandfrei Die Platte wurde innerhalb weniger Tage von ATELCO geliefert. Jetzt das ärgerliche: Beim Auspacken dachte ich mir schon "Na hoffentlich hat die keinen Transportschaden abbekommen.", denn die Verpackung war in meinen Augen schon etwas spärlich für eine Festplatte. Ich hab die Platte eingebaut, in Windows angemeldet und nach langwierigen Versuchen aufgegeben, da sie sich nicht partitionieren und formatieren ließ.
