Summary: Over the years the quality of Seagate's consumer hard drives has declined precipitously, but despite their inability to produce affordable and reliable consumer hard drives Seagate's enterprise line, most notably the Constellation series, has continued to be a good solution for enterprise data...
Summary: I would have given a 5 star on this drive, but it came shipped in a DELL drive chassis. I would have preferred a bare drive so I could have dropped it right into the old drive frame. However, the drive is working flawlessly and we couldn't be happier with this purchase.
Summary: Drives perform well but are just a slight bit louder than we would like. Could have sacrificed a bit of performance for Seagate's NAS series of drives (the non-enterprise/constellation line) which are designed for use in homes.
Summary: I bought 20 of these for a SANs storage. The ones that work from the start are still working great in my SANs (DSN-3200 by D-Link). There were 4 units that came dead. The reseller replaced them quickly so there wasn't a major issue. It does makes me worried that 20% of the units came dead.
Summary: I purchased 5 of these to replace end of life drives also by Seagate. The drives received were branded Dell. They were to be used in a NAS server and so far one is working well with no problems. I also checked the warranty on-line and it proved to be what it should.
