4 out of 4 failures within 2 years

  • Excerpt: I used these drives in a QNAP 4-drive NAS for recording video 24x7 from 25 surveillance cameras. In 2 years we've had to replace 4 drives due to failures. Two of the drives failed within the first year, and 1 of the replacements has already failed. Would not recommend these drives for this application, even though that's supposedly what they are designed for...
  • Pros: Quiet

A dud - don't waste your hard earned money on these drives

Marek Kowalczyk, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: Pros - none Cons - After purchasing 2 of these drives in February I've yet to receive even 1 that is actually works and is new. I've had the drives already replaced 3 times, with most of them being DOA. I wanted to set up a raid drive with mirror storage for my photos and video clips, and haven't been able to do any of that. What's even worse, is that now Seagate wants me to accept refurbished drives as opposed to new ones ...

First one I had worked very well until it broker after about 18 months.

David Lehman, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm giving this model one last chance. It was recommended to me by the company that makes the DVR that it's going in, so I'm just going to take their word for it. Last chance.

Solid performer, rugged durability

Bob Nelson, Amazon
1 January 2014
  • Summary: In spite of an ice storm in the region, the product arrived from Amazon in a timely manner. After three weeks of 24/7 use, the drive shows all signs of fine performance and plenty of storage at an affordable price.

Would recommend the 2TB for nubes

Terry R., Newegg
19 October 2013
  • Summary: Seems nice if you understand the problems that will occur with a lot of other programs and devices. I would say that for a power user, this might fit the bill for a nice RAID arrangement even tho it is intended for video and surviellance uses. Quiet and cool rule in RAID, and dependability matters a lot in Near LIne uses too.
  • Pros: What a nice hard drive, heavy tho, but silent, dependable over the month or so I have used it.
  • Cons: Would make excellent paperweight, heavier than two regular HDs. Don't even think of putting it into a laptop portable, heh.

Too bad no SDD in this size

dmbTank, Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: Spinning Monsters. Seagate please give me SDD in this size. Now reality, I bought a few of these for my NAS, everything worked as planned, time will tell. I will give seagate credit as I have used their products in the past with long life reliable service. Since these are for NAS i was not too concerned about read and write speeds but more concerned about life expectancy.
