Summary: I have just bought one Seagate 2TB NAS HDD (ST2000VN000) for my Seagate 2-Bay NAS Server, I plug it in the second bay, but the system do not show any disk. Just after restart, the nas server gets the second disk led status blinking with the power led blinking too, and get stucked like that forever.
Summary: I bought one of these a couple months ago to add space to my Windows 7 home server. After extensive tests it's now in my DrivePool and working just fine. I just bought another to replace a couple of 2 TB WD Green drives with 1.3 million unload cycles...
Excerpt: These were to replace some WD Red drives (from another vendor) which, contrary to their description, were "bulk" drives not subject to warranty. I had no problems registering the drives purchased through B&H with Seagate.
Summary: I have eight of these now, with four in a NAS and four in a workstation, and they are all going strong. I used normal 3TB Seagate drives in a raid 5 array, and they started dropping out of the array after about a year, so it seems a NAS grade/type drive or higher is essential for a stable RAID...
NOT compatible with Netgear ReadyNAS (or so they say?)
1 January 2015
Summary: Good specs, but NOT compatible with Netgear's ReadyNAS 104. Yes, it IS on Netgear's compatible drives list for that unit, but tech support *insists* it is not compatible. Ask for Hanna at Netgear support for details. (FYI. I do not agree, I wasn't impressed by her technical prowess).
Summary: So far so good. I usually buy WD but this one had great reviews and the price was right. What else can I say. It is working fine in a OWC dual drive bay via Firewire 800 to a 2010 Mac Pro. No issues!
Summary: I bought two of these in July. They were working well except one would disappear from the OS on very rare occasions so I changed SATA cables and it seemed fine. Five months later, within two weeks both stopped working while my other HDD in the PC was fine.
