Fast but not reliable

Todd H., Newegg
4 March 2016
  • Summary: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else because it is so unreliable. seagate should make sure it actually works before selling it to the public. it has been my worst hard drive purchase ever.
  • Pros: Fast when it word
  • Cons: after a few weeks i got an mbr 3 error. before i could get around to fixing it the drive stopped recognizing windows and would not boot. i then reloaded windows 10 on it, ran it for another couple of weeks, and got the same mbr 3 error and then the drive again wouldn't recognize windows and would...

Not what I was expecting

Joseph B., Newegg
15 November 2015
  • Summary: Just had the Hard Drive for one day and didn't expect this to happen. I own a few HD's from Seagate and never had a issue with them.
  • Pros: Haven't had the chance to see the performance.
  • Cons: I put a OS on the hard drive and when it did a reboot for the installation, the SSHD didn't boot up. I plugged it in on my other computer and it doesn't find the hard drive.

Brad F., Newegg

  • Pros: None that applied to me.
  • Cons: It doesn't fit in my Acer Aspire One AO-756. It sticks up too high for the cover to be put on. That's not all. I put it in a HD dock and tried to see it with Windows 7, but it couldn't see it. I tried again with my old XP laptop, and it could see it. But not with Windows 7. It's useless to me, I ...

Keeps failing

Burke M., Newegg
6 February 2015
  • Summary: How can you say something positive about a product which causes you to lose over 3 days messing with your PC and hours of phone time .
  • Pros: Quick, great size and cheap.
  • Cons: It keeps failing. Every-time my laptop heats up or uses a heavy load my data drive fails. Using a laptop cooler doesn't help. I use a 3yr old HP DV-7 quad core. I had to buy a new laptop because I can't afford to be down. Seagate has now replaced it 3 times. I'm now selling the latest replacement...
