Good drive, stores data just fine

R. Lopez, Amazon
1 June 2014
  • Summary: Its become to really notice a difference in hard drives for a desktop user in the past few years because they all work so well and the slowest one now will just blow away the fastest of the old ones that we used to use. If you want to have super fast storage then go with an SSD, but they have very small capacities, when you wan lots of storage or a drive that will be on continuously then this is the drive for you.

So far, so good

David "dgp", Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this hard-drive to replace a Western Digital AV-GP in a security camera system NVR that failed after about 6 months of use. I did not want to purchase another WD drive because of the short life in the NVR and two prior WD desktop drive failures. This Seagate has been installed about a month. Not enough time to really know if it will be reliable but so far, so good. It is very quiet.

  • Summary: Perfect for use with my Zmodo 8Ch camera system. I will say that I couldn't be more happy with how this is working and hope to get many years out of this.

Nice Drive - you will not regret it

Christopher C., Newegg
3 April 2014
  • Summary: Seagate has been around for a long time. All drive manufacturers have issues now and again, but in this case I think they nailed it. For the intended purpose, at this price point you cannot go wrong. I'm not easily impressed, and this drive impressed me.
  • Pros: Worked right out of the box.
  • Cons: The only 'con' I can think of is that it's a 3 gig/s drive not 6 -- but who cares, it gets the job done.

Consistent performance from 0GB to 1000GB!

Vincent n., Newegg
1 April 2014
  • Summary: A nice little drive all in all. I thought the purple badging was just going to be some marketing gimmick, yet the test results show actual measurable results!
  • Pros: The thing that strikes me immediately about this drive is it's consistency.
  • Cons: Though consistent, in absolute terms this drive is outperformed by other drives when under 50% used. Seagate is clearly trading front end for back end speed (i.e. trading "speed when 0% used" for "speed when 90% used"). That's good for some uses, not desirable for others.

Affordable video storage drive

Peter C., Newegg
27 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a SATA 6Gb’s drive, this has become standard for almost all hard drives. However the drive being SATA 6Gb’s doesn’t actually make any difference.
  • Pros: Good price
  • Cons: Not really any cons with this, worked right out of the box as expected.

Inexpensive DVR drive

Edmund M., Newegg
24 March 2014
  • Summary: The brown Newegg box arrived promptly as always via UPS. The drive came OEM in other words it came bubble wrapped in a anti-static bag instead of a retail box, so no details or info on the drive, not a con as most drives these days come OEM style unless you buy it at a brick and mortar retail outlet, then you pay at least 30% more.
  • Pros: • Inexpensive for a video streaming drive
  • Cons: • Only rated at 3GB/s drive, a bit disappointed as almost all modern drives make use of SATA III’s higher transfer capacity ie 6 GB/s
