They *seem* to be fine, now

Yoda, Amazon
19 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought two (one for primary drive and one for backup use). One inside workstation, another inside esata/usb external enclosure. I just had to try them, as they blow away everything solely on price. Of course, I focused in on the reliability and firmware problems. Mine came with CC1H, I believe, and Seagate's site says that I do not need to worry.

With the newest firmware this drive is fantastic

Nathan Beauchamp "ConsumerAdvocate (nathan(at..., Amazon

  • Summary: After a brutal introduction with faulty firmware that caused many users to hate this drive, Seagate has finally got it right and produced a firmware that allows this monster to work to its full potential. Now shipping with the most recent firmware, this is a fantastic backup drive or media storage drive. I use it in my home server as the storage location for all my media.

New firmware

Igor A., Newegg
28 November 2008
  • Summary: If you researched the drive before you bought it, you probably read about the freezing problem. Seagate has released a new firmware to deal with this and it's on the "Product Tour" section of the newegg website.
  • Pros: high capacity, 5 year warranty
  • Cons: might need firmware upgrade

Great Drive with Updated Firmware

Anonymous, Newegg
24 November 2008
  • Summary: I'd give 5 stars if not for the firmware issue, even though it's fixed now. It will be a bit of a hassle for everyone, especially those without much technical knowledge.
  • Pros: Largest capacity drive out without a pricetag that reflects it.
  • Cons: If this drives comes with the stock SD15, SD17, or SD19 firmware, beware of write cache flush lockups/freezes. Seagate has released a new SD1A firmware that fixes this issue.

who would have guessed the cache?

Mark H., Newegg
24 November 2008
  • Summary: My drive has firmware version SD17.
  • Pros: super fast (110 MB/s), ridiculous amount of space, great price.
  • Cons: stops responding for 20-30seconds at a time when busy. Found that disabling write-caching fixed that: hdparm -W 0 /dev/sdd , and hasn't noticeably impacted my usage (technically it's greatly improved my usage because it doesn't freeze the system anymore).

Raid geeignet jedoch etwas "träge"

Ben Moll "corporate design - fotografie", Amazon
25 October 2010
  • Summary: Habe 3 Platten gekauft, zwei davon als Raid 1 Verbund, eine weitere als "Datenspeicher" mit geringer "Wichtigkeit". Alle Platten waren bei mir in Ordnung und laufen seit einigen Tagen ununterbrochen in meinem Mac Pro. Einen Nachteil konnte ich jedoch feststellen: Ist der Computer oder besser die Festplatte mal im Ruhezustand, dauert es gefühlt sehr lange, bis die Platten wieder "aufwachen". Stört etwas, aber ansonsten bin ich mit Preis/Leistung sehr zufrieden.

  • Summary: Masaüstü bilgisayarlarda tercih edilen 3.5 inç’lik sabit disklerin şu an için ulaşabildiği en üst nokta 2.0 TB, yani eski dile göre 2000 GB. Tabii 1500 GB'ın da yeterli bir miktar olduğu söylenebilir. Bilgisayarınızdaki multimedya içeriği fazlaysa ya da arşiv yapmayı seviyorsanız Seagate’in ST31500341AS model numaralı ürününün tüm dertlerinize derman olacağı aşikar. Ürün bilgisayarla tahmin edebileceğiniz gibi SATA II arabirimi üzerinden haberleşiyor.

Bewertung Seagate Barracuda 1,5 TB

Maximilian G., Amazon
3 June 2009
  • Summary: Naja eigentlich hätte Sie ja 5 Sterne verdient, aaaaaber es werden nicht die ganzen 1500GB sondern nur 1429 GB, was wenn ich bedenke, wie viele schon geschrieben haben, dass sie weniger hatten, noch recht gut ist.
