Excerpt: I bought five of these drives for a Drobo RAID setup and after just over a year all but one of them have had to be replaced under warranty apart from the one that failed this week, which is now out of warranty. An 80% failure rate is totally unacceptable.
Excerpt: I have used Seagate drives exclusively for the past 15 years. I have only used these specific drives for a few weeks, and they are behaving well. They are used in a home office RAID 1 array for about 8 hours per day.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Reliable
Arrived ahead of Schedule, appears to be 100% new and okay.

Summary: This review for Canyon River Group's Seagate ST2000DM001. Drive arrived ahead of schedule in robust packaging. After installation, it showed 100% formatted and tested 'PERFECT' per my drive monitoring software. Drive runs quiet and performance is snappy as you'd expect.
