  • Excerpt: Seagate drives have a pretty bad reputation and I would probably never trust my data to them individually, but I used them with RAID systems with no problem. That is to say, when one failed after 3 years of careful service (12 hours a day with drives spinning down when not in use) I was ready with...

  • Summary: I have bought Seagate hard drives for years. I bought two of the 7200.10 hard drives and they both failed. I sent them back for warranty replacement, and BOTH of the warranty replacement drives died. I did not bother to send them back again.

  • Summary: My average transfer rate is about 100MB/s. Multiple file transfers it drops down to 30MB/s. I have no complaints so far. So far it is consistently running about 4 days straight a week before a shutdown over night. I am running it on my home server.
  • Pros: -Fast transfer rate for its speed, -Runs cooler than expected, -Quiet
  • Cons: Speed normalized with multiple file transfers

  • Excerpt: I purchased these four drives for use in a Synology 1511+ NAS station. The NAS is used primarily for backup so speed wasn't terribly important. What I needed was cheap storage space. I was upgrading from a mix of 2-3TB drives. I got five drives and one out of the five drives was DOA.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Low Durability

SEAGATE Barracuda 3.5" Desktop HDD - 4 TB (ST4000DM000)

Mark, Pixmania

  • Excerpt: It was pretty underhanded of Seagate to hide the slow RPM by not displaying it or even putting it in their data sheet. The only place the RPM is written anywhere is on the sticker on the face of the drive. They don't display that in any promo images.
  • Pros: The drive worked, technically, but it's only 5,900 rpm.
  • Cons: The Barracuda line became popular because they were 7,200 rpm and worked really well, but this one is only 5,900 rpm and they don't display that...
