Excerpt: Seagates have never dissapointed me. Fast transfer speeds and great as storage drives. These are definitely the newer 2 platter drives, and not the older 3 platter drives that some retailers are carrying. Fast shipping and overkill packaging (Each HDD had 3" of bubble wrap and was placed into its own cardboard box) was definitely a plus. B&H has won me over!
Excerpt: I continue to buy these drives because of the price and performance. I have now purchased 14 of these drives. I use them for professional HD video editing and use them in a hot-swappable Thunderbolt drive chassis connected to my iMac editing with Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe Premiere CC 2014. I have never had one fail. They perform wonderfully and are very dependable. B&H consistently has the best price I can find for these drives on the web.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
Excerpt: I have about 20 of these 3TB drives and about 10 of the 4TB drives. These 3TB drives are nice and fast and very affordable. I have 6 of them in RAID 5 with a read write speed over 750 MBps. I expect and plan for these drives to fail. It's more affordable to buy them and expect them to fail than invest in pricey HGST drives. I always have data spanned across three different storage platforms to ensure backup in case of drive or RAID array failure.
Excerpt: I've used Seagate drives for a number of years and I chose this one to install in my PC mainly for photography storage. Installation in the PC was effortless since I had an open slot and all needed wiring in place. Rebooted the PC and all was well.
