Got two bad drives in a row!

Danny,, TigerDirect.com
21 February 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.

  • 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
14 January 2014
  • 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!

Not at all safe for data, beware!

Sulobaid Suevin, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: First, let me just say i purchased this junk/rip off from OCTAGONPEG and 7 months later asked if it had some kind of MFG warranty because it completely died only to get the rudest and most insidious reply i have ever got from a seller without the curtsey of answering the question, (Amazon is investigating - thank you.) DON"T BUY FROM HIM! NO WEAR on the original purchase did it say "OEM" if i had saw that i would not have bothered buying it.

Seagate 3 TB Drive

Danny G, Staples
6 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The 2 TB WD C drive in my computer was giving me frequent errors so I replaced it with a 2 TB Seagate drive and then added the 3 TB Seagate to the system. I spent about a week moving important files from the original drive to the 3 TB Seagate before the original drive completely failed. Although I wasn't able to retrieve everything, I was very happy that I was at least able to save most of my important files. Well, that happiness didn't last very long.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Unreliable
