Died shortly after 2 year warranty period.
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?
Summary: Initial product was received INOP, attempted various recovery methods, boot sector and just about every other sector was corrupted before shipping, (expected a replacement unit; have yet to receive one for proper review.)
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.
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
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.
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.
