Summary: Years ago, Seagate took the crown of being the best drive on the market. Then they bought the Maxtor company, a drive not known for being great. Right about that time, the quality of Seagate plummeted.
Summary: I ordered a Seagate Hard Drive model ST32000641AS for $230 but actually received a Seagate drive ST2000DM001. Although the specifications appear the same, the price for the ST2000DM001 is $150. This product was a bait-and-switch.
Summary: Purchased 2 of these for a Synology NAS unit. First one initialized fine but the second crashed during initialization. Returning them and purchasing WD units instead. Thought Segate was the more reliable brand - guess I was wrong
Summary: Purchased 4 3TB Seagate drives to use in a RAID 5 configuration as part of a Home Theater installation. The idea was to have a fault tolerant system, where one drive could go bad and the array could be rebuilt. I've now had the array collapse due to failure of two drives on two separate occaissions.
Summary: Seagate must be getting lax on the Quality Control since I don't remember them being this bad in the past. I have several Seagate drives that have been working for years. I've now order two of these drives, 1 from Newegg, and one from Amazon. Both drives were DOA.
Summary: While Press Releases claim the 2.1 TB Barrier is broken, don't count on your HP workstation recognizing the whole drive. My xw8600 "sees" a 746 GB drive. HP says its Windows and Windows says a GPT drive is usable at 3 TB.
Summary: Ordered four for a RAID solution in our new MACPRO 12 core, 1 was dead from the start. This is unacceptable. Seagate, wake up, you were once a terrific company. I *never* had this happen but our tech advisor advised me NOT to buy seagate. He said seagate is unreliable. He was right.
Summary: My new high performance Seagate drive failed after 3 days! After buying Seagate bare drives for over 15 years, I noticed that the quality of Seagate drives has been deteriorating over time. The Seagate 2TB 6 Gb/s drive started generating data and file errors in my Win7 PC after 3 days of use.
