NAS drive works so far without issue

Andrew N., Newegg
15 October 2015
  • Pros: Performance, capacity, power, heat, etc. are good at this price point. I have three of these in R5 now on an LSI card. Will add another for spare when the price comes down or a promo is offered. Went from R1 to R5 without issue though it took over 24 Hrs (data foot print dependent I know ;). Have...
  • Cons: none of the drives I have purchased thus far have the cool new label shown on NewEgg's product page LOL ;) Could have a longer 5-year warranty, three years is a bit lean.

Put four of these in QNAP NAS

David S., Newegg
2 September 2015
  • Summary: I sent the bad disk back to Newegg along with the Seagate utility report confirming the disk as defective. The return was no-hassle and I received the replacement drive about one week later.
  • Pros: Lower RPMs keep them cool in the NAS. Price was nice for a 3TB at the time I purchased them. Running 3 in a RAID 5 with a 4th drive as online spare.
  • Cons: One of three was defective right away; the NAS was OK with read/write but very slow and the SMART output was bad. Downloaded Seagate's disk utility and it confirmed the disk was bad.

Decent drives 1 DOA out of 17

Wesley W., Newegg
24 April 2015
  • Summary: The drives were bought for 2 x QNAP 869L. Luckily I bought 1 extra drive as a standby and as it turns out, 1 drive was DOA so it didn't delay the deployment. Newegg is replacing the defective drive.
  • Pros: Decent drives, seems to be quieter and generate less heat than the Baracuda 7200 RPM drives.
  • Cons: 1 out of 17 drives purchased was DOA.

Time Will Tell

Kyle M., Newegg
15 February 2015
  • Summary: Only time and usage will tell for these drives. If they run as well as the 2TB version, going to be a great buy. I hope Seagate lives up to its good reputation.. Running RAID setup well, will be going to RAID 10 soon. Then I will see how it goes.
  • Pros: Picked up 2 of the 3TB drives for my NAS build. I have used the 2TB version for other builds. So far the drives seem to load and go right to work. They have good speed and are quite. They are running 24 hours for a few days, then only while the Storage system is needed. Needs flex so it puts them...
  • Cons: None as of yet .... Still testing.

User Review

Dan C., Newegg
10 February 2015
  • Pros: Drives are reliable and solid. Two have been running for over a year, so I decided to get two more to double my NAS storage.
  • Cons: Of the two new drives, one was DOA and had to be replaced. Four out of five working drives, four out of five stars.

Good Drives

David W., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Pros: Excellent drives for my NAS server just wish it was a 5 year warranty like drives use to be without having to pay more money for the warranty.
  • Cons: None so far and like to keep it that way.

Decent value - longer warranty.

Mr_Fastbucks, B&H Photo
27 January 2015
  • 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
