one drive failed with smart errors

Mark R., Newegg
27 September 2015
  • Summary: I seldom have to give such a poor review as I research everything I buy to death but this drive was dead out of the box.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I stopped buying Seagate drives 10 years ago for this exact reason, high failure rate.

  • Pros: None
  • Cons: I ordered 4 of these for a upgrade on a NAS at my office and one of the drives was bad out of the box.

DOA. Not good.

David M., Newegg
14 February 2015
  • Pros: Shipped fast.
  • Cons: Loud clunking noise then nothing. Seagate just lost my company as customer. No reason for this to happen. Obviously wasn't tested before shipment. Box was in perfect condition with sufficient bubble wrap.
