DOA

Bob Wilson, Amazon
22 December 2011
  • Summary: Not a robust drive. Bought it a couple months ago and didn't get around to installing it until now. (i.e. after 30 day return period) Once installed received nothing but annoying beeping coming from the hard drive. Took the drive and laptop to a local computer tech. He confirmed it's dead Jim.

3 months later and it's busted

Jacob B Hench, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Installed this in a friends laptop as an upgrade and now they're bringing it back to me a few months later because it's locking up and running slow. Ran some tests and the drive is riddled with bad sectors and seeks constantly. I'll have to replace it again but I won't be buying Seagate this time.

Lasted 1yr 4 months

Michael, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: I too was a bit leery when I bought this drive originally because of the reviews, but the price was right at the time for a laptop (ThinkPad) drive replacement/upgrade. I should have listened to my gut reaction. Drives eventually all fail - its just a matter of time and inevitably, mine fail after I've been on the road for a week without a backup.

oh for three

Peter H., Newegg
29 July 2009
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: This is an update: the third drive is now failing the Long DST in Seatools. So this is the third drive out of three that fails. I'm revising my former rating from down to 1 star, and returning it for some other brand. I can't recommend this drive.

thermal recalibration cycle problem

Tennyson L., Newegg
28 April 2009
  • Summary: I contacted seagate tech support, but they could provide no assistance. Seatools diagnostic software did not diagnose the problem
  • Pros: Quiet and runs relatively cool for 7200 RPM drive
  • Cons: After a week of use, the drive started performing thermal recal cycles (as evidenced by a distinctive clicking sound) very frequently, sometimes more than once per minute. During the operation, the drive does not respond to the OS.

Drive is not new

D. Lemos, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: Drive is not new, BE AWARE! Bought this drive to replace a faulty hard drive on my laptop. I work in IT. So after all the work of opening the laptop and changing the drive, I wanted to test the new one. I discovered the new drive contained bad blocks as the old one. Had to buy another hard drive and couldn't use the laptop for about 2 weeks.

  • Excerpt: Проблемы начались, как только поставил его во второй отсек в ноутбуке (в первом стоит SSD). Как это может быть связано - не понимаю, может, просто совпадение. Сейчас пользуюсь как внешним, вроде порядок, хотя подключаю редко.
  • Pros: Достался вместе с ноутбуком DELL XPS L702x (из США).
  • Cons: Первый месяц работал нормально, затем после продолжительного обращения (к примеру, загрузки на него торрента) компьютер стал зависать. Кроме этого, периодически громко "стонет" (протяжный звук, как будто сильно раскручен и резко останавливается) и становится невидим в системе. После перезагрузки проблема временно исчезает, хотя иногда такой звук возникает еще и до запуска BIOS (и компьютер зависает). После замены, ноутбук стал вести себя нормально. Проверка программам...
