works but reallocated sector count keeps climbing

D. Wilson, Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: Drive installed perfectly into a linux server. After 30 days of run-time, the re-allocated sector count was up to 83. After 76 days of 24/7 run-time, the count is up to 499 sectors. It is clear I am going to have to buy a new drive, copy all of the data off this one, and return it to Seagate for repair/replacement. From past experience, as this is the second Seagate drive I will have had to replace in the past year, Seagate will send me a refurbished drive.

Fast, when it works

Tom, Amazon
23 July 2011
  • Summary: Purchased two of these drives for installation into a Synology DS211+ NAS unit. After approximately only 2 months, one drive crashed, requiring replacement. And that's just 2 months of one backup a night, not constant heavy use as a primary drive. Disappointing to say the least.

Nach knapp 3 Jahren ausgefallen

P. Schmidt, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Bis zum Ausfall lief sie dauerhaft durch, ruhig und störungsfrei in zwei Raidsystemen (deswegen noch 2 Punkte), allerdings dann Knall auf Fall nicht mehr. SeaTools sagen "irreparabel defekt". Da 5 Jahre Garantie geht's nun zum Austausch zu Seagate, aber trotzdem ärgerlich - ich würde sie nicht mehr kaufen.

Artikel nicht wie Beschreibung

Frank Schnieder, Amazon
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Die Festplatte ist eine sogenannte "certified reapaired HDD" und entspricht damit nicht dem in der Artikelbeschreibung angegebenen Zustand "Neuware". Die Festplatte soll der Datensicherung dienen und erfüllt damit nicht meine persönlichen Kriterien. Daher direkt zurückgeschickt. Versand und Reklamation wurden aber zügig bearbeitet, daher 2 Punkte.
