3 out of 5 eggsStarted failing before 1 year

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -Cheap
-Hasn't completely died
-2 year warranty

Cons: -Errors and instability within 1-year mark
-Seagate warranty makes you pay for return shipping

Other Thoughts: This hard drive was purchased for an average user. The PC was primarily used to draw (photoshop/sai), play games on about medium settings, and school related work. It was the primary (and only) drive in that build.

At around 9 months, the PC would hang and generally be unresponsive much of the time. Seagate's diagnostic tool was used to provide more information. The drive would fail Short Self Drive Tests consistantly.

A fresh install of Windows 7 (2 fresh installs actually) resulted in continued hanging and instability. Swapped out the drive with a brand new one running a fresh install of Windows 7 and the system is running fine.

I find it very displeasing that the warranty requires me to pay for return shipping. I often find companies offering prepaid shipping labels which are very welcome. It's especially bothersome if the cost of shipping is a moderate fraction of the buying price of the drive. Shipping services alone cost about $13 and I paid $65 for the drive. In the unexpected event I have to RMA it again, It will cost me about 1/3 of the drive.

It also doesn't help that I have 3 other Western Digital Drives that are older and still running strong.

Pros: N/A

Cons: With the return I saved nothing. To make matters worse what they sent was defective.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage. No way I am fixing under manufacturer warranty.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Newegg replaced a nonworking drive.

Cons: Newegg replaced with a seemingly working drive that is defective. It lasted less than a week. I hear the plates spinning. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate. It took awfully long to boot ( a few minutes). The drive I put back in was slower and booted in less than a minutes compared to over 5 minutes with this. Any operations such as opening any programs, browsers, disk tasks and such would take way too long. If I did not know about computers I would think it was me. When I tried using as a second drive it would not format. It almost fried my system electric wise.

Other Thoughts: I read the bad reviews and thought only a few lemons existed. I got the defective one replaced. It took so long to get a replacement that this one broke in a week and cannot be returned. INFERIOR...absolute crud. With all the money I have saved over the years this waste more than makes up for it. Keep in mind when you return that it is deducted from the 30 days. It is possible to keep getting defective drives and being ripped off as I was. Just a note to consider. I am not angry I am just letting others know currently this is substandard. Who cares about the goodness of yesteryear?

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I've had this in my current computer for two years now running with a solid state drive for the system. It is whisper quiet (I've never heard a sound out of the Seagate) and it has worked perfectly.

Cons: I have had no problems with this drive at all.

1 out of 5 eggs4 of 4 DOA

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None.

Cons: Recognized in BIOS, but not in Windows. Irreparable with both SeaTools for Windows and SeaTools for DOS.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Seagate drives for over 20 years, and I've always had good luck, especially the Chinese made ones. These are all from Thailand, and I am less than impressed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: - Good Speed
- SATA connection
- Cheap

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I use this drive as my primary storage in the desktop I build this past May (vs SSD for my OS). It's a soild drive with no problems to date. If you're looking for a well built 1TB hard drive, just buy this one. You won't be disappointed.

If you buy and install this drive but it doesn't appear to be recognized by your computer, there may be some settings you need to change for your computer to locate it. That will more likely be the problem rather than the drive being broken.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I was worried about Seagate. I always went with WD. So far I have no complaints and it is my second Seagate hdd in the past 6 months. Similar to the other I have received, this is perfect. Speed, size and price.

Cons: None.
