Not Impressed With Green Drives
6 January 2013
Summary: I will not buy any other brand of hard drive. I have in excess of 20 hard drives that I have bought over the past 15 years. All of them are Western Digital. Even the 10.1gb drive that was my first, 15 years ago, is still working.
Summary: The one I ordered was the 2TB one. I ran HD Tune on the drive immediately after I received this hard drive. Surprisingly, the drive has 9 percents damaged blocks. The worse thing was, whenever I tried to run the benchmark test, the "read error" window popped up.
Summary: I bought the 2.5 terabyte drive and installed it in a 64bit windows 7 box as a data only drive. After booting windows I used the windows disk manager to initialize the drive as a GPT partition. It did so but only reported 280GB. I check the bios and the drive was showing up as a 301GB drive.
Summary: Bad Drive, Bad Packaging, Bad Performance The cheap price of this drive may tempt many people to buy this drive but I recommend against it. The hard disk comes in a flimsy 1 layer of bubble wrap with just a cheap cardboard box for protection and does not contain a SATA Cable or any packaging of any...
Summary: Bought it on 9-4-2013. Was working fine until a few days ago. The Hard Disk started showing some issues a few days back. The computer freezes for a few seconds and sometimes i had to restart the system. Sometimes when booting , the BIOS shows error for the Hard Disk.
Summary: These drives are low performers, and by all account here they don't compensate with reliability (as of writing 12.5% of Amazon reviewers reporting failed drives). This is different to actual failure rate, and according to behardware the overall return rate of this exact model is 2.31% and that's not...
Summary: beware if yours drive is damaged. I am a regular customer of flipkart and they never disappointed me but this time i am not impressed, my HDD was only made protected via single layer of bubble wrap along with a regular delivery box. that's it!.. NO original box..nothing.
Summary: I bought this from Flipkart almost a year ago and i thought i'd drop in to review this product after using it as my primary drive. If you are a gamer like me and expect this to perform faster than the other variants or other Seagate HDD's then you will be really disappointed, The 'Green' tag is an...
Summary: Das mir gelieferte Exemplar war zwar vorbildlich verpackt, jedoch sofort bei Inbetriebnahme war klar, solche Gehäusevibrationen können nicht kompensiert werden. Ein Probeeinbau in das vorgesehene NAS-Gehäuse machte es klar, am Aufstellort brummte die ganze Tischplatte mit.
