Not the model I wanted

Germain, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I was looking for an identical drive so I could try and swap out controllers and recover data from a failed Seagate drive. This wasn't close to what I had. A Google search for the model number I had listed this unit as a top match. So be careful in checking model numbers and specs. Some vendors clearly insert keywords into inconspicuous places.

DOA Hard Drive

Budy T., Newegg
30 June 2013
  • Summary: I read the reviews on the website and it was really good, so I ordered it, but it arrived DOA, must have been bad luck from me because the company is overall good.
  • Pros: none yet
  • Cons: It came DOA after I ordered it, so I had to send it back to Newegg for the RMA. Good Service from Newegg, but bad service from Seagate.

Fail and bad

Mychael J., Newegg
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I think I will not buy that HDD. I like to buy other SSD better than HDD.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: I just got that HDD from my cousin. it's new. I just built new computer so far and perfect smooth unlit OS part that where i can't forward. BIO recognized the disk but windows 7 can't recognize it. I checked list disk in command prompt and the disk is not there. I tried set SATA mode to AHCI and still same problem then set IDE and still no luck. I tried work on it for 2 days and installer won't recognize it no matter what i try do. I have no choice so took HDD to geek...

DOA

Will B., Newegg
13 December 2012
  • Summary: Now I have to spend my own money to ship this drive back after I get an RMA. Just doesn't seem right that I have to pay for Seagate's mistake.
  • Pros: Pros? It didn't explode or catch fire
  • Cons: DOA. When I powered up the drive for the first time, all it did was sit there making a sound similar to a distant car horn alarm. Ordered two of these and the other was not DOA. First time I didn't buy Samsung in a long time...first time in a long time that I've been bitten by the DOA bug. Thanks a lot, Seagate!

DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM ZEGA DIGITAL

Ashwin, Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: Internal Drive arrived a week apart from my other parts, and I found that there was already a Windows 8 account installed on there which was password protected. On top of that, I visited the Zega Digital website and it gave my laptop malware. Please do not trust this company!

Always check

Mr G A Sowden, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: As someone else has already said, Check the model number of what you get, I had the same issue, ordered this drive and was sent a 3 GB/s model instead of the one ordered. Returned straight away and now waiting on the refund.
