These drives are problematic

DT "dt", Amazon
28 September 2009
  • Summary: I have 4 of these drives and one of them all of a sudden told me it was only 500GB. I have a coworker who had the same problem. Seatools allows you to correct this. Not a big deal if you don't have any data on it. However if you do, you will lose it all!!! Two other coworkers have had to return these because of the drive starting to click and then losing sectors. I am putting Seagate on my DO NOT BUY list indefinitely.

Freezing problem persists after firmware update

Casey Benjamin "casey@tenfoottv.com", Amazon
24 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this drive on Amazon and used it in an HP MediaSmart EX470 Windows Home Server to increase storage. While playing video from the server the video stream would start to stutter and freeze. I spent 2 months troubleshooting through a strict process of elimination, ruling out the Client PCs, the managed gigabit switch, the HP Server, its software and hardware.

Problems on OSX? Not good for playing media files

RH, Amazon
5 October 2008
  • Summary: I bought two of these (not from Amazon, but another vendor), and they are unusable for media or any other near real time use. Every 5-10 minutes, the drives will stop responding for a period of time (10-30 seconds). Data is not lost, but it's useless for playing back media files, as videos and even MP3s will stop playing. SMART monitoring shows no errors and that the drive is working properly.

Verpackung 6-

blub, Amazon
6 April 2011
  • Summary: Da der Versand durch Amazon geschieht gehe ich davon aus sie auch von Amazon verpackt wird. Die Verpackung war wirklich unter aller Sau. Das habe ich von Amazon schon deutlich besser gesehen. Anstatt sie sauber in Luftpolsterfolie einzupacken lag sie ohne Kunststoffummantelung lose AUF einem Haufen Papier. Ich betone "AUF" und nicht "umhüllt von". Sie ist an die eine Seite des Kartons gerutscht wo sie völlig ungeschützt vor einem Aufpral lag.
