Decent value - longer warranty.

  • Excerpt: I won't believe the marketing hype that this drive is somehow better than their standard Barracuda drives until they've run in my environment for a few years. For now, the only reason to buy this drive is the longer warranty, which is welcome.
  • Pros: Durable, Quiet, Reliable

and came in good packaging for protection

  • 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.

Quiet and quick drive

  • Excerpt: Disks are very quiet and seem to have good throughput for a lower RPM drive. Using in an HP N54L so far with 2 drives mirrored. Benchmarks are comparable or better than others.
  • Pros: Quiet

Poor packaging, but runs cool and fast

Al, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: This is a relatively quiet drive compared to the various WD and Seagate consumer class hard drives in this price range. It runs cooler than most drives I've owned, but you do need a decent fan in your case to keep it within operational specs.

Decent enough drive for my NAS - but not too sure about the vibration dampening

knitting ninja "knitting ninja", Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I installed this Seagate NAS drive (the 3 TB version) in my Synology DiskStation. Although the drive is new enough that it is not on Synology's compatibility list, all seems to be working just fine. The drive is very quiet but it does have a bit more resonance in the case than I expected.
