Summary: I've been a fan of Seagate for years. Over a decade ago i had a multiple Western Digital drives fail on me and switched to Seagate. It's hard to guess exactly how many Seagate drives I've owned over the years but between desktops, laptops, external drives, HTPC's, NAS, i'd guess it's 75+ easy.
Summary: Been running a pair of these on an old box with freeNAS for about 4 months. So far these seem to perform well and no signs of failure. Even on an older says controller. I may upgrade the sata controller at some point, for a home NAS they some to be working just fine.
Summary: So far the best NAS consumer disk I've used. Works great as GPT (GUID Partition Tables) for Linux and Ext4 and XFS runs very nicely on these disks. Runs much cooler than other Seagate Barracuda disks I've owned on the past, between 85 and 88 F when operating at room temp of 72.
Summary: Bought this as a ready spare for my Synology NAS. The first four are still going strong after a year and a half without having been powered off once in that time (backup power supply). Quick response times, disk tests all show they're in perfect shape.
Summary: I picked up 5 of these drives for a big RAID 10 array. 4 in RAID 10 one as spare. even though these are 5900 RPM drives, in my RAID 10 Array with the Adaptec 6805E I cam getting sequential read and write close to modern SSD speeds (I am comparing directly with Samsung 850 Pro installed in the same...

Summary: Had a Seagate Desktop Backup external drive that had a failed disk. Decided to grab a NAS rated drive to put in the Seagate enclousre. This thing works like a champ. Great for DNLA streaming in the house. Very happy with this drive!

Summary: Have a total of twelve of these involved with my FreeNAS box. They are in a garage in a rack and the temps, even in the summer, are stellar. Very little noise, great performance and not a single complaint so far.
