Summary: I've used Seagate drives for many years now, and I couldn't be happier. So when it came time to purchase a couple of drives for my NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 (which is a two bay system) I went right to the Seagate section. They arrived individually boxed and well protected. It took all of five minutes to install them in the NAS and set it up for RAID 1. They've been running non-stop for a little over a month now with no problems, no errors. They are fast and whisper quiet.
Summary: Failed after 2 monmths of light use as a single storage drive. Never had a drive fail so fast. First time in 20 years with Segate - May go back to WD which I have used for years ... Waiting on replacement - but lost my entire media collection.. NOT HAPPY !
Summary: This unit was purchased for use in an external 4=bay enclosure. It has performed to the standard I have come to expect from Seagate. The price was lower than all the standard electronics/computer hardware sites (Newegg, Tiger Direct, etc.), and came in good packaging for protection. I am well satisfied with this purchase.
I cannot tell if it is my NAS (synology diskstation) ...

Summary: I cannot tell if it is my NAS (synology diskstation) or these drives, but the system is DOG SLOW. i don't really care as it's more warm storage for me and my family. They're large, they are quiet, and they don't give off too much heat. How far we have come with technology, eh? would buy again, for the exact same reasons i bought them this time. I'd never use this in anything but a server - but i boot from SSD, so what do i know.
