  • Excerpt: Use it in a NAS and for the price you cant beat it. Seagate has had some firmware issues in the past but this drive runs well.
  • Pros: High Capacity

Better twit then chirp! ;(

  • Summary: For those that are not aware of ongoing, long-time dragging "chirping" issue of Shee..gate disc. I'm one of those victims myself and only realised once I got them. LOL 2 devices. Both singing well. But that wasn't the purpose of having 2x3TB storage :(. FYI: The chirping sound is caused by disc heads being parked on random.

  • Summary: Over the last twelve months I bought 10+ of these drives. Most recently was last November. Now, they are all starting to fail. So far I've had five fail. Beware, as there's a reason why these drives are warranted for only a year! If there was one piece of advice I'd give is to make sure to get the ones made in Thailand. Anecdotally, so far, only the ones made in China have failed me.
  • Pros: cheap, cheap, cheap
  • Cons: unreliable, run too hot
