It Died

Margaret M., Newegg
15 March 2014
  • Summary: Thankfully, I lost no data since I don't trust any drive until 90 days have passed and this one failed in 20. It's annoying when Windows Updates forces a reboot and the system hangs because a drive is no longer responding.
  • Pros: Large Capacity - Fast - Quiet
  • Cons: Drive was delievered on Feb 25 as part of a new build and as of March 15, it's already failed. It didn't even make 20 days of use before failing.

It comes with a 1-year warranty

  • 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

Drive fails SMART after 1 month

Clark S., Newegg
3 November 2013
  • Pros: Great drive concept. I was really hoping that this drive would be a great choice for my Synology NAS.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, having drives fail the SMART tests 1 month into its life is not good. Other reviewers indicated that these Seagate drives can fail shortly after installation. I got burned too.

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. When I did clone it, it partitioned the drive up into three sections. What a pain. And if you don't follow the directions carefully, you're just gonna have a 2TB drive anyway.
  • Pros: Easy To Install
  • Cons: Setting Up As Driive

Died all too soon

Gary, FutureShop
21 April 2013
  • Summary: Purchased 14Nov2012. Failed 06May2014. This drive lived in a NAS behind a UPS, so it is not like it lead a hard life. I would expect a minimum of 3 years service, which I did not get.
