Built with NAS in mind

Susman "Susman", Amazon
22 September 2014
  • Summary: With NAS devices I would always want to buy internal hard drives that are suitable for that environment. When I read that these drives were energy efficient and needing less cooling requirements, I thought that these were worth a try. For network attached storage devices it has impressive credentials and it features a SATA 6 Gb/s interface, 7200 rpm rotational speed and a 128 MB cache.

Going strong 1-month in

M. Hassman, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: Replaced a failing barracuda with this in my home SAN/MythTV/Plex/Media Server-Encoder that is never fully idle. Seems like an ok replacement, reported 3year on-time and 1 reallocated sector at install. Also showed a high read error rate (all hardware recovered), but after being installed a month doesn't seem to be incrementing, so this may have been the reason the disk was originally refurbed. Will definitely let you know if it goes downhill.

Works well so far, but it's a little noisy when accessing files stored on it.

Kaleb Keefer, Amazon
23 February 2014
  • Summary: Works well so far, but it's a little noisy when accessing files stored on it. I bought another hard drive from a different company and it died within a year, so I gave Seagate a chance. I'm hoping it lasts longer!

Constellation Seagate Shines Brightly!

RC, Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: After much research, I chose this drive because the original drive (Western Digital) that shipped with my computer died in the middle of an album project. Although my ultimate preference is a Cheetah, it wasn't in the budget at the moment. As a music producer, I knew that eventually I would have to upgrade the WD with a highly efficient, reliable and secure storage that delivers seamless enterprise integration.

Running in an Ubuntu/Plex home media server

Cthulhu_Cult, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: During some home renovation/spring cleaning, I was reminded of a previous gaming rig that was collecting dust. I had been toying with the idea of a media server and thought this would be a good low-cost starting point for one. After a ton of research I decided that Ubuntu and Plex would serve this purpose nicely - and with a an E8400 dual core processor, 8GB ram, etc...I wouldn't have to purchase anything...or so I thought. I was fascinated by the open-source options.
