Seagate drives are not reliable

Summary: The Seagate NAS is super easy to install and configure. I had the device operational within 10 minutes of unpacking. The device is slow, but was accessible from all my devices (Windows 7, Win 8, Android, and iOS).
Pros: Very easy to install and operate. User interface is simple, but handles everything I needed for a home backup solution
Cons: Reliability, noisy, green feature is questionable, hard drive life expectancy is poor, doesn't handle RAID, not user serviceable, poor warranty support, slow USD speeds when backing up to USB connected drive
Summary: Please save yourself trouble, go with Synology or Qnas, you will be a lot happier, this peace of crap has web interface from 1980s, it crashes all the time, stops responding all the time, moving around the interface is super slow, connecting to a domain is a nightmare, connecting to Active Directory...
Summary: I bought this NAS thinking it would be a great way to backup my all my media. It worked alright for a while, but a few months ago it started to do this really heavy clicking sound that started to scare me. I've heard this click before and I pretty much feel it's going to just die on me anytime.
Pros: It's a nice little size and comes with a lot of space to store files in.
Cons: This thing is soooooo slow and it's starting to click like crazy. Something is definitely wrong with it.
Summary: I just sent in the second RMA for this unit. It dies once a year with bad sectors and smart errors. This time you could not even access the GUI. No warning just gone. I should set a calendar reminder for the next RMA. I keep hoping, but I think this is a lost cause.
Summary: vague instruction, tech support does not know why the folders cant be shared on the network, and after 2 weeks the thing does not want to communicate with samsung bluray and ps3. Sharp tvs see the the drive but can not access any of the files.
Summary: I've build a very quiet PC from spare parts (again): old case, lots of isolation sheets inside, cut two big holes in the case with Scythe 5DB 120mm fans, underclocked the CPU and filled it up with old HHD's (gonna add the drive from the BA110 later). Got almost 4 TB now and it's FAST!
Pros: It's quiet. My wife has tremendously good hearing. Evry PC I built made too much noise. The Black Armor does not.
Cons: SLOW, SLOW, SLOW Doesn't matter if you transfer through network or USB, the ***** thing is incredibly slow!!! About 5mbps through network and about 7mbps NAS to USB. No problem putting small files on it (unless you want to transfer many of them), but a movie in HD (abt. 4 GB) takes forever! So do...
Summary: It just upsets me that a company can just produce junk. As a comsumer we have no recourse other than being jerked around by CSR reps who do nothing more than read a sheet that just keeps us spinning our wheels.
Cons: This drive is simply JUNK. Buying a NAS to use as a backup for all our family pics and videos just to find out it won't last for more than a year is bull. If you search this drive you will see they have had many problems with these drives. This drive sits all by itself on my desk with plenty of r...
Summary: I can get about 10MB/s off my Western Digital Live Hub (1Gbps) on a 100Mbps network (router), and Seagate's 1Gbps NAS can perform only 12MB/s? This is sad!
Pros: Housing looks great!
Cons: Terribly slow transfer rate for gigabit connection. I tried a direction connection from laptop to the NAS with auto MDIX. 1Gbps connection was established, but the transfer was only about 96Mbps (12MB/s), even slower than USB 2.0. With 2TB of storage, this is very disappointing and impossible to ...
Summary: I've been a Seagate user since the late 80's and feel this is lousy business. Oh I know that I SHOULD NOT HAVE relied on a one drive system, but I felt that the hard drives have gotten better..............anyways
Pros: Looks great, performed great, great backup SW package...............WAS great.............until it failed!
Cons: Well, I knew better than to trust a one hard drive to ALL my date, but this IS advertised as a NAS and capable to maintaining the data for many users. Its far-fetched to rely on this NON-RAID drive for your data. I put ALL my data on this and been looking around for another 2tb drive to copy the ...
