Defective, was not recognized in two different Mac Pro towers.

R. REINHARD "mac lover", Amazon
30 August 2014
  • Summary: Did not work in two Mac Pros. I bought this for my Mac Pro tower, and put it in three different hard drive bays, yet my machine did not recognize it. Then I put it in a newer Mac Pro tower and that machine also did not recognize it. Subsequently I bought a Western Digital 3 TB HD on Amazon and immediately my Mac Pro recognized it, then initialized the disk so I could use it, which I have been doing ever since without incident.

Had to Return

  • Summary: This Drive is said to work in Synology DS1512+. However, Seagate recently changed the firmware, which now causes intermittent failures when used with Synology. Go with another drive if your're using a NAS.

Failed catastrophically

Glenn Smollinger, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: I had one ST3500514NS, 500 GB Seagate Constellation ES drive as my system drive. I also had 2 X 1 TB WD Black drives as data drives in my desktop system. I installed the Constellation drive in 2010 along with a MB upgrade. This drive was rock solid until Friday morning. It failed without warning, and cannot be accessed. There is a burn mark on the PCB next to the power connector, so I suppose that is the failure.

  • Excerpt: Домашний RAID5 массив с архивом семейных фотографий и документов умер из-за того, что был построен на 3 таких дисках, и 2 из них посыпались в течении 1-2 недель.
