5 out of 5 eggsNo DOAs

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: ordered 3 all survived 4 hr NAS data scrub
ordered 2 more still good!
Used in Synology 412+ and Asustor 604t NAS units
quiet and cool.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Why the insistence on a 7200RPM drive for a NAS drive array has very little importance for storage only, The faster drive is important for server based applications and ;VMs and iSCSI shares,

5 out of 5 eggsNo DOAs

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: No DOAs on First order of 3 (st3000VN000) all quiet, cool in well built NAS unit. Just order 2 more will follow up with report on those.
More than fast enough for backup and storage

Cons: none yet!

Other Thoughts: I am alarmed at the reported failure rate and DOA rate for newer Hard Drives over 1TB, I have over 8 drives 5-7 years old on home computers used several hours daily,

I have had only 1 DOA on hard drive in last 11 years

3 out of 5 eggsGood...if it works

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: This drive is great when it works. I got two of these for a mirror setup for all my photos/videos. The drives are plenty fast and 3TB is a nice capacity for media. The price was right when I bought them.

Cons: I had one drive fail on me about a week after purchase. Newegg handled the replacement flawlessly, but having a failure is still a pain. The replacement drive has been working for about 5 months, but just recently disappeared from my drives (Windows 7 system). I am going to keep an eye on it but this replacement drive might also be failing.

Other Thoughts: Since I bought these to store personal photos/videos I need a drive that is reliable, but I probably wouldn't purchase these again with the reliability I have experienced. They have a great capacity, but it doesn't mean anything if the drive fails.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after 6 months

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Very fast for a NAS hdd
Good price

Cons: Failed after less than 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Bought two of them for a raid 1 configuration
Hdd were bought in november 2013, but I installed them in may 2014. One of them failed (Smart error, RMA from seagate) in the end of september 2014. The other one seems to be OK. They do not seems to build HDD the way they used to... Hope that the other one that I bought will last.

5 out of 5 eggs3 out of 3 ain't bad.

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Bought 3. Passed diskcheck and combined with two WD green drives for a RAID5 array. Loaded up 8TB of files on them are so far working flawlessly. (Not a recomendation - just what I had available)

Cons: None so far

1 out of 5 eggsStop suppressing bad reviews

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Many DOA drives reported and reviews quashed.

Cons: Stop removing reviews that warn people against buying this defective product.

Other Thoughts: Awaiting the delivery of a replacement drive that will probably be as dead as the last one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drives

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: + Lots of storage space
+ Quiet
+ Low vibration
+ Perfect for NAS / RAID use
+ Good throughput
+ Designed for 24/7 operation
+ Reduced power requirements / heat output

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: I got two of these drives to replace two older 1TB WD "Green" drives in my near-line RAID1 array used for making backups and working with large media files.

The performance of these drives is very good, yielding about 140MB/s write, 150MB/s read. This is on a Gigabyte motherboard with built-in RAID, which unfortunately only supports SATA2 (3Gbps). Even though these drives have a lower spindle speed than typical desktop drives, they don't seem to lag behind in terms of performance. I will probably pick up more of these drives to replace the ones in my Synology NAS box the next time the drives are on sale.

I was also pleased with Newegg's improved drive packaging. Rather than just tossing bulk drives in a box (which doesn't meet the manufacturer's shipping guidelines) and hoping that UPS doesn't mangle them, the drives were packaged in inflatable plastic carriers and individual cardboard boxes in addition to the larger shipping box.

NOTE: if you want to create a single volume on these drives or anything else larger than 2.2TB, be aware that you will need to create a GPT (GUID Partition Table) instead of a MBR when initializing the disk.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST3000VN000 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: All 3 purchased drives worked fine out of the box
Drives are relatively quiet
Drives are reasonably fast
These are apparently rated for 24/7 duty

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Bought these instead of the WD Red drives after reading many stories of WD Red bad drives and reliability issues.

So far, so good. I purchased 3 of these several months ago for my new Synology NAS, installed them, did the recommended 36 hour consistency check, and all has been well since then.

Nearly done with my second consistency check and everything is still good.

Newegg, you did a fantastic job of packaging these for shipment. Everything was extremely well packed and padded and the drives had no room to slide around during shipment. That makes me want to buy drives from you.
