Not for most

Jason, Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: Warning!!!! If you use Adobe or any other Graphic design program do not use this type of Hard Drive. You need to read Adobes forums on HDs and what they have found with even SSDs. This was one of the worst HDs I have ever used and wont be using a Seagate again, I am actually liking the longevity of...

It Crashed in 6 Months

Derek J. Detar "Derek", Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: This hard drive had light usage on a laptop that was meant for leisure purposes. Meaning I did not use it for school or work, and it was used 4-5 days a week. A hard drive should never fail that fast!

Do NOT expect Seagate to replace or repair this drive when it fails.

Jason Yates, Amazon
28 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought two of these drives. Both started acting up with bad sectors. One failed completely within a couple of months of purchase. I had my local PC shop deal with Seagate because Seagate requires you to use a program they provide to get diagnostic info they require before they will agree to repair...

Didn't work at all

Jorge Ivory Castaño, Amazon
13 February 2013
  • Summary: Disk was recognized by bios, but I was unable to make it work. Couldn't install windows on it, tried disconnecting other disks but the process did't even begin. Using it as slave always says that was not formatted. Trying to format the disk showed a MBR error.

First drive did not work

Ally, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: I have installed memory and hard drives before, although in desktops, and this was my first update to a laptop. However, I think I did my homework, and I installed the hard drive only to have it throw status 0xc00000e, that the computer could not communicate with the hard drive.

This was not compatible with my Mac Powerbook as stated.

Thomas Ramos "Thomas R", Amazon
14 January 2013
  • Summary: Hoping it would be compatible like the product description had mentioned I was completely disappointed. I had used a previous one and it only lasted 6 months and the warranty is useless.

Defective? or A nice idea that doesn't work?

Senior Curmudgeon, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Initially benchmarked almost equal to other 7200 rpm SATA drives on the same SATA 2 controller. Slightly slower than a HGST 2TB 3.5inch 7200rpm drive on the same port of the same controller.

Died after 6 months

Grrr, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • Summary: It lasted about 6 months in my 2011 macbook. Then one day I got the dreaded gray screen of death. Luckily I had everything backed up. Still not a fun experience. I've read enough reviews now to realize that these drives have a higher than normal fail rate (both in the flash memory seizing and the...

Died after 5 months of use

Jacob B, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: Worked great as a 2nd drive in my 2011 MacBook Pro. Then, 5 months into it, it started randomly turning off and required a reboot for Mac to recognize it. Then it disappeared completely and wouldn't come back up. I pulled it and hooked it up to my sata hd drive reader and I heard drive clicking..

Junk

Robert Cary, Amazon
20 August 2012
  • Summary: My old HD was getting a bit long in the tooth and it was time both for more space and a newer HD. This seemed like the perfect drive. It was FAST, it felt like a brand new laptop. Everything was great except it failed within a month.
