Rating: 4/5Pay Attention, Much Lower Warranty than other 600 PRO SSDs
This review is from: Seagate 600 Pro Series ST120FN0021 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Enterprise Solid State Drive (Usage Based)
Pros: Enterprise MLC
Cons: What isn't clear unless you dig unto the specs is the warranty rating on the 120GB drive is VERY low compared to the other 600 PRO series.
I was looking at the PRO as they have an extended warranty - supposedly due to Seagate overallocating cells to make up for write failures.
Seagate warranty is based on time OR total writes, whichever comes first.
Apparently I'm guessing the 120GB must be the same as a 100GB with less overallocation. Check out warranty for total bytes written:
100GB - 220 TB 120GB - 24 TB (!) 200GB - 520 TB
Given the PRO is advertised as made for enterprise apps this information should be made more prominent. At this time of writing it isn't anywhere on specs page here, and most sites make no mention of the massive warranty tradeoff you give up buying the 120 over the 100
It's all good if you know what you are buying and make an informed decision based on usage. But lack of info is bad.
