Near Death On Arrival

MetaK,, TigerDirect.com
12 May 2014
  • Summary: it failed after less than a week of use after being in the same dual HDD enclosure with a WD Caviar Black drive which was bought at the same time and used the same. I guess I should have seen it coming because when using HDD Regenerator and Active Boot Disk before formatting, ABD indicated that the disk was only 51% healthy out of the box. Should've known HDD R couldn't save it.

Got two bad drives in a row!

Danny,, TigerDirect.com
18 March 2014
  • Summary: I received my first drive in a very timely manner, tested the drive and couldn't get it to stay connected to any computer I owned for more than 20 seconds at a time. RMA'd the drive and received another in about a week's time, this one was also bad so I requested a refund.

Shortest lived HD I've ever had.

J. Ratoff, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Died in 20 months; then Seagate tried to claim it was out of warrantee. Luckily, the receipt from Amazon clearly showed that I hadn't had the drive past the two-year warrantee period. Do not buy.

  • Summary: I have other Seagate drives and have had no problem formatting them for Windows 7. You just go into disc management, and it recognizes all 3TB. My system wouldn't do that for this drive. It wouldn't allow me to create a 3TB partition.

aweful product

Eugene, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: I bought 6x drives less than two years ago. Used them in the QNAP NAS storage unit in nearly perfect environment. Two drives failed already and the third one is about to die as well. One recertified drive I got from Seagate failed within a month as well. I'll never buy Seagate again.

10 days, crashed with 10 errors, likely 2 TB lost

Chris, TigerDirect.com
1 January 2014
  • Summary: Easy to install, seemed to work fine, used for 10 days and transferred well over 5 TB data between computer and 8 external HD. While transferring 1.41 TB overnight to this HD crashed. Trying to restore with Seatools. Passes short generic but fails long generic. Trying again as I write. Useless if I lose all this data on drive and transferring. Be careful!
