Be the first on your block with a Terabyte drive. This Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 series drive uses second generation perpendicular recording technology to pack the data in tighter than ever. Not only does this lead to the increased capacity that gives you 1TB of storage it also makes the drive faster and more efficient. Since the data is closer together the read/write heads don’t need to move as far. And if the drive works faster, you work faster.

The SoftSonic motor enables ultra-quiet performance so you don’t have to worry about drive noise distracting you if your system in on your desk. Enhanced G-Force Protection defends against handling damage which is especially useful if you put the drive into an external enclosure, or if you put it in a system that you transport to LAN parties.

Have the biggest Barracuda on the block, and strike "tera" into the hearts of your opponents!

4 out of 5 eggsWas good while it lasted...

Pros: This drive was awesome when I got it back in 2008 and the packing was satisfactory. Worked right out of the box without a hitch into an XP system and I was able to transfer a lot of video and music files to it. I only ever used it for storage because I needed the space (I use small drives for my programs). I got it for a good price at the time (I think it was on sale during a holiday) and the transfer/write speeds were really, really nice.

Cons: Well, some time around the middle of 2011 it started developing this click that continued to get louder. The warranty had already expired and the noise freaked me out because I've had drives fail on me before. Thinking the worst, I transferred the data I cared about, swapped it to an enclosure so it could "die" a peaceful death, and put it into retirement. It's 2013 now and it still hasn't quite died...it still has that horrible hanger-noise-on-a-metal-closet-rod/click of death thing going on whenever it reads or writes and it won't format, and while I should just chuck the thing, now I'm curious as to how much longer I can string the thing along! =D

Other Thoughts: I'm currently looking for a replacement and I'm wavering between another Seagate or a WD...I've used both in the past and I'm currently using both now, so it's a bit of a toss up.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after three years

Pros: Worked excellent while it lasted, was fast and easy to install windows 7 64 on

Cons: One minor earthquake killed it. The quake was barely big enough to rock the shocks on my car on my way home from a funeral. It merely felt like a little pothole on all four tires at once. I come home and find it dead. Luckily it was still under warenty so I sent it back. I dont think they liked the box I sent it back in. I went to my local computer shop and got a WD box. Lucky for me I had thoughtfully bought an auto backup drive with software so it wasn't as catastrophic as it could have been. Then I installed Windows on a little rinky dink 80 gig IDO that I had and waited.

After two days I was looking online and saw the Western Digital black drive on what rhymes with Guest Guy for $100. I did some research and found it was a very good little 1tb drive so I immediately bought it. Never had a problem since. When the replacement came back I turned it onto a storage drive.

Other Thoughts: Does not seem to make a good OS drive. It would sometimes pause as if it was busy thinking once I accessed the drive. It was the head resting. I know now that there is a tool that would disable that but I still prefer WD black over this brand. Seagate seems to be only good as backup drives and portables. Never again will I have a Seagate as the home OS drive.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty darn good

Pros: This drive has operated flawlessly and quietly for 3.5 years.
Seagate customer service was extremely courteous and had no problem replacing the drive even though it hasn't failed yet. It is just showing an increasing Reallocated Sector Count.

Cons: After 3.5 years of operation, I'm getting increased Reallocated Sector Counts, but drive hasn't failed yet.

Other Thoughts: I'm generally please with how this disk has been working in my ReadyNAS NV+ as part of 4 disks in an X-Raid array. Seagate customer service has been excellent so far.

2 out of 5 eggsTwo drives died in 4 years

Pros: If it works - it works ok and fast. Price was good too. 5 years warranty.

Cons: First drive died in several months and was replaced by Seagate. This drive worked for less than 4 years and died instantly and totally - drive is not recognized by the system anymore at all. 1Gb of data is gone (thankgod not that important, but still). And new Seagate drives come with 2 or 3 years warranty....

2 out of 5 eggsSeagate Warranty Owns Your Data

Pros: Fast drive, worked well while it lasted

Cons: Died in 3 years, which is reasonable, especially considering the 5-year warranty. Shortest life span of any hard drive that I've owned, and I've owned many.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, I cannot read the drive, and Seagate's warranty terms and conditions state that they are not responsible for the disposal of the drive and its contents. Since the drive contained confidential financial data, it cannot safely be RMA'd under these terms, so the warranty is pointless. To be fair, the warranty terms of other manufacturers are probably very similar.

2 out of 5 eggsWas fast

Pros: Very fast drive, made my 10000 rpm raptor look slow

Cons: died on me in less than a year, 800 GB of information gone.

Other Thoughts: I have two seagate drives that have been running for over 6 years without any problems, and this one dies on me in less than a year, I had a lot of important information on it because I had a false sense of security from my other drives. Going to try a different brand of drive this next time around.

1 out of 5 eggsTwice burned

Pros: Good service from Seagate

Cons: Needed service from Seagate

Other Thoughts: The drive started to get random errors from windows then failed all Seagate utility’s tests but I was able to get a backup. Seagate sent me a refurbished hard drive which failed catastrophically with no warning last week. Stick with the Caviar line of drives.
