Bought three drives, 100% failure rate

panton41, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought three of these drives across multiple vendors (two of them were stock with Asus laptops and a third from New Egg) and I've had a 100% failure rate with the last one dying about a month ago. Not that I trusted them before (I prefer Western Digital) but I would never touch Seagate again after this. Apparently their acquisition of Maxtor brought with it their high failure rate.

Item broken after a few days

Emanuele, Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: I received the item as expected. Just had the time to istall it in my DELL Latitude D830, install the OS and after a few days of working it started making a "tic tic" noise and brokens. It's no more readable from BIOS or live OS starting from CD, it's useless. And no returnable. I'm wondering if Amazon intends to do something about this inconvenience or just took the money for selling a failed item.

This doesn't work easily with Macs

Stephen P. Hale, Amazon
18 May 2013
  • Summary: Look up trouble with Seagate drives and Macbooks. It's a real problem. Buy some other brand, like a Hitachi or Western Digital. Don't buy this for your Mac. You can make it work (eventually), but it's a major pain, when normally replacing a Hard drive on a mac is SUPER easy.

750GB drive failed within two weeks

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: Before I get into specifics, this caution - note the date and model on this (and other) Seagate internal hard drive reviews. Amazon lumps together drives of differing technology, size, and generation into one review pile. Look for the reviews that actually apply to the drive you're considering. Even though I read multiple reviews warning that this 750GB drive is prone to failure, I'm an optimist so I bought one anyway.

Two disks failed in short order.

Radix, Amazon
11 September 2011
  • Summary: I purchased one of these to replace my laptop hard disk. Everything was working fine for about 5 days, and then the disk failed - badly. There were many failed sectors which could not be remapped, and eventually the disk couldn't be read at all. Amazon set up an exchange for me I got a second disk.

Failed after 2 years of light use.

Speedy "Speedy", Amazon
2 October 2009
  • Summary: This drive was in my MacBook laptop which only got light use. It failed after 2 years. Should not have failed so soon. I replaced it with a larger and faster Hitachi Travelstar 320GB 7200RPM SATA drive on sale for less than the price of this one. Hope to get more than 2 years out of the replacement drive!

Terrible support

peewit, Amazon
15 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this Seagate hard disk drive to replace the unit on my Win 7 laptop as the existing drive was showing signs of imminent failure. It took almost two weeks for the disk to arrive as PSL apparently messed up the first attempt and Royal Mail returned the package to them saying that it had incomplete address information.
