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.

Expert Opinion - These drives only last a few months

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 November 2011
  • Summary: I have purchased 3 of these drives in the past year or so. Each of them lasted under 3 months. I am an IT expert and a Senior Programmer at a major consulting company and I know the problems are with the drives, not me.

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.

Fast but unreliable - avoid this drive

Richard Wainscoat, Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: I installed this drive in my MacBook Pro, replacing the original 160 Gb drive that had become too small. It worked well, and was fast. But, after about 4 months of use, it started to die.

Seagate charges $19.95 to make a warranty claim.

Dmitry, Amazon
14 December 2009
  • Summary: My drive started to make a loud "clunk" sound about a week after I installed it. I just spoke with Seagate warranty department and they said that it would cost me $19.95 to have them ship me a new drive under warranty.
