Summary: Replaced a bad hard drive in a surveillance DVR. It's been two months and no issues at all with the replacement. Installation was very easy. I'll give it four stars because I'm not gonna with a year to do this review.
Summary: I wanted to consolidate the number of data drives in my tower. This drive is quick and large. I didn't have any issues with Windows 8 64bit Enterprise recognizing the drive, formatting it etc. This allowed me to replace 3 500GB drives and have additional space as well.
Summary: Without knowing how long the unit will last, it's hard to write a complete review. The unit keeps up with the data from my 8 channel ZModo box and dropped right in without any formatting or preparation. I will have to assume it is of typical seagate quality.
Summary: This HD is specifically Designed for Surveillance Duty making this a Rugged Component. Though it is a 1 TB the Previous HD I had was 1 TB also but was for a Regular Computer OS type Component which did record longer ( more days in the Week ) but Failed due to the Constant Duty ( 24/7/365 ), this New HD for some reason seems to record less days but for the Duty Specifications it makes up for the Loss.
