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: 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.
Summary: A certified technician tried to install it, and it wouldn't spin. After a nightmare return and exchange process, the replacement worked just long enough for them to install it, me to take it home and boot up once, then it crashed.
Excerpt: This was a great price for a good hard drive. I was able to use a $30 off cupon and the drive costs less then $40. I wish i could buy them at this price everyday.Every month when i get the Staples cupon i buy another Seagate drive.
