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 another drive to replace it.
Summary: Heureusement que j'ai commander 3 HD pour le prix $169,99, car j'en ai un de défectueux. Pour un NAS de 2 Bay en RAID1. C'est la première fois que je fonctionne avec un 4To. Très satisfais. J'ai mis une étoile de moins a cause du retour.
Pros: Très silencieux dans le NAS Shuttle Omninas KD20 2 Bay.
Cons: Sur 3 j'en ai un qu'il me faut retourner., Ça fais 2 fois qu'il me faut retrouner un HD seagate. ;(
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. I sent it right back to B&H within the 30days and they got me a new one. Besides the dead drive things have been well. Generally my experience with Seagate is that they are hit or miss.
Summary: I have a hard time believing an 80% defective rate when these drives left the factory. I ordered 4 of the same drives from another large online retailer and had zero failures. They were packaged differently for shipping.
Pros: Lots of storage space for cheap. Low noise, low power consumption.
Cons: 4 out of 5 drives ordered from Newegg failed diagnostic tests in SeaTools. Each drive was individually bubble wrapped, then placed in a box that was too small so the top and bottom bulged. Five of these were then placed in a big box against one side with no padding, then brown paper was packed around the remaining sides.
