  • Pros: Good price
  • Cons: I am a little scared at this point of drive failure because this is the LOUDEST drive I have ever owned. CHKDSK isnt finding anything wrong and it hasnt failed yet, but I am not sure about this drive, will review again after i have had it awhile.

So Far So Good

Ann D., Newegg
30 November 2014
  • Summary: Ran Sea Tools testing before installation - Seems solid - BUT I was deeply suspicious as this drive showed up WITHOUT a sealed antistatic bag, in just a clamshell....All the drives I have gotten from Newegg have arrived in sealed antistatic bags till now..... Did I get somebody's returned drive?
  • Pros: 128mb cache makes a difference - other drive was a Samsung Spinpoint S7 with 32mb cache and this one does about 25% better in SANDRA benchmarks. Real world difference? Not sure.
  • Cons: None yet.

Great (now working) HDD

Nicolas B., Newegg
1 July 2014
  • Summary: My brother warned me about seagate, but I figured since we have a bunch of old barracudas around they can't be that bad. Sure enough, the first one was DOA. Thanks to Newegg the the fast and painless RMA process. Now to wait for the other 2 and see how these bad boys do in raid....
  • Pros: Fast hard drive - almost as fast as my 3 hitachi deskstar raid 5 array. Also coolest running HDD I've ever seen. Will adopt as my new choice for workstation HDD.
  • Cons: DOA :(

So far, So Good

Anthony G., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Final thought, I remove an egg for the shipping packaging.
  • Pros: It works perfectly for my needs, i.e. film streaming in the house. The drive has been running for a few months. Although, it often goes in sleep mode since it's not he primary disk.
  • Cons: I don't like the mechanical noise it makes when the spinner starts. Although, I don't really ear it after. I didn't like how this drive was shipped. Packaging was too tight and too small.

Stable so far

Emmanuel C., Newegg
2 January 2014
  • Pros: It's very big and fast.
  • Cons: According to HD Tune, the Spin Retry Count is mark yellow and the BD8 is also mark yellow. HD Tune still mark it as health, but this a cause for concern?

Marcus W., Newegg
11 November 2013
  • Summary: none
  • Pros: It works....see cons.
  • Cons: Well...initially installing it on my M5A990FX Pro R2.0...it wouldn't read...come to find out I was plugging it into my "raid" ports from what it looked like. Hence, it got no play until I turned off AHCI...which sucks because that's a faster mode to read my HDD's on. No biggie because my SSD and ...
