Seagate 10 Years and Going

ABM, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I have been using Seagate as my main drives for over 10 years and they have been excellent. The new NAS drives should work just as well.

  • Summary: Bought 8 of these (2TB version) for use in my file storage server. All 8 worked on arrival and passed all tests. Put them in RAID 6 on a PERC 6/I controller. Haven't had any faults yet.

So far so good

djulm, Amazon
5 August 2014
  • Summary: I initially purchased only one of these for my 2-bay NAS but figured that I'll need one more. Installation was easy (I use Lenovo ix2-dl NAS housing) and in few month of usage I didn't have any issues. I hope these HDDs are reliable as they say and that I won't experience failure since I put then in RAID 0 and I want to transfer to them all movies/shows I have....

Works as expected

Zach, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: It's difficult to get excited about a hard drive, but this one has delivered as expected. I'm using 2 of these connected to a HighPoint Rocket 640L with Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials to create an ReFS formatted mirrored storage space for our home server. We backup all of our machines to this storage as well as use it as the primary location for all our pictures, music, and videos (~800GB). I was previously using 2 1.5TB WD Green Drives with Windows Home Server.

Moderately inexpensive but FAST!

JaGar, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: I had two WD Green Drives in my Drobo 5N and they worked well albeit a bit slower than I liked. Also I started reading about NAS drives and the special attention to vibrations given them. I started to think my Green drives weren't the best choice. So I bought three of these Seagate NAS drives to replace my to WD Green drives. Figuring I would get peace of mind from having purpose-built drives, I was shocked by the performance improvement.

Excellent disk drive

Olde Sidekick, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: Installed 3 of these in an HP microserver running Windows Home Server 2011. These drives are one step up from the usual (cheap) retail drives and one step below expensive enterprise-class drives. Good compromise. Very low vibration, almost no sound, fast. (Not sure I believe the 1 mil hours MTBF however...) I used DrivePool software to create a single 6T disk instance (file duplication without RAID); works fine. I recommend both the drive and the software.

Perfect for HOME NAS applications!!! VERY affordable.

Jeremiah E., Amazon
16 February 2014
  • Summary: This hard drive is perfect for home NAS or raid storage applications. Most people don't know that you cannot use just a desktop hard drive for any type of NAS or raid storage. They do not have firmware that supports thos type of uses and your data is at serious risk of being lost. Seagate has found that in this day there is more home users making there own data servers for movies and music and as such has made a hard drive that is inbetween a full enterprise class and...

Works well. Time will tell.

3 February 2014
  • Summary: I've only had this for about a month, so its too early to rate this on longevity, but so far its doing what it is supposed to do. I have two paired up in a synology home nas drive.
