Summary: This hard drive crashed after only a few months of operation. The disk drive will not boot. While I am generally satisfied with Seagate products, I am rather surprised the the disk failure so soon. I have a Seagate 4tb hard drive as a backup hard drive, and that is going strong.
Summary: Over two years old still being used to back up other drives with no issues. I do check my drives on a weekly basis for bad sectors etc and have never had any problems on this drive. Read/Write speeds are close to spec (a little slower) and not really important for my usage.

Summary: Purchased in Oct 2013, it worked until early 2015 where it suddenly started overheating terribly (I have a constant heat display which shows only the hard drive rising in temperature, until it is so hot it finally starts to impact nearby components).. Awaiting on warranty claim approval.
Summary: I bought 3 of these December 2014 (I don't trust WD to store my data after 3 drive failures in a year) they are running in software RAID 5 on a Poweredge 2950. They have been going for 4 months non-stop without a single issue.
