Died shortly after 2 year warranty period.

N/A, Newegg
18 June 2015
  • Summary: I own quite a bit of high capacity drives across various manufacturers and like the title states, this is the only one that has stopped working out of blue (click of death?) just months after the manufacturer period expired (my other drives are past warranty and are still in working condition).
  • Pros: Worked while it lasted.
  • Cons: Coincidence that it died shortly after manufacturer warranty?

Bought a new one and first 30 days

  • Summary: I bought one and it has been shipped back, then the replacement was bad. My hard drive so far the first 30 days has spent more time with USPS than at my house. Look for another brand.

Dead already?

31 January 2014
  • Summary: Got the drive on black Friday and got it all set up and working really quickly. It was working fine for a good day until it died. Won't sow up in BIOS any more and just clicks when given power.

It comes with a 1-year warranty

Ryuji, B&H Photo
18 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought five total of these drives in 2012 and some of them are dead, after about 18 months of service. I retire hard drives after 2 to 3 years of service because that's the point when the risk of failing drives increase sharply. But that point comes much sooner with this drive.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Quiet
  • Cons: Unreliable

Disappointed

ITmatters, B&H Photo
30 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I'm a fan of Seagate drives. I've had bad experiences with others and usually do not with Seagate. I purchased two of these drives and mirrored them in a Synology NAS in July of 2012. Almost exactly 1 year later, one drive failed. The other appears to be working fine but...I can't say I'm pleased.

VERY Cmplicated

Root, B&H Photo
22 December 2012
  • Excerpt: If you think you're going to stick these in your computer and have a drive letter pop up on your "computer" page and you're gonna have 3 more TB of memory. NOT HAPPENING. This was way more complicated and until I "cloned" my C drive, I couldn't even tell if these were working.
  • Pros: Easy To Install
  • Cons: Setting Up As Driive
