Seagate has long been both an innovator and a crowd-pleaser in terms of data storage technology. The new ST31500341AS is the latest in a long line of Barracuda drives, with a storage and speed seldom seen. Designed with noise- suppression engineering and state-of-the-art speed and power this 1.5 TB powerhouse offers a brilliant combination of technology and low cost of ownership. Idling at only eight watts, this drive delivers up to 43% power savings over earlier generations without sacrificing performance.

When supported by the latest firmware updates, downloadable from Seagate once you've purchased your drive, this spectacular unit offers the best of both worlds -- top performance and a very small eco-footprint, so you know you have an industry leader AND are doing something good for the environment.

1 out of 5 eggsI can haz anything but Seagate?

Pros: First inexpensive 1.5 tb drives.

Cons: You get what you pay for, apparently.
I had over 6 of these, and the 1 tb version in a WHS v1. All failed within few years, a few in warranty, most just outside it Only one gave me a SMART warning, the rest just stopped working, although I was able to clear most of them off before they totally failed. All the other brand drives that I tried later, Hitachi, Toshiba, Western Digital, and even "green" Seagates are all still working today.

Other Thoughts: Yes, I know I'm ranting about drives no longer sold, but my ST3000DM001 are busy failing in my WHS 2011, and ima gonna whine about it. (next review.)

3 out of 5 eggsMust know what you're getting into

Pros: Good value, good performance compared to other 7200rpm drives

Cons: Notoriously problematic
"Seeking" noise

Other Thoughts: The 7200's are notorious for problems so you have to be prepared. These drives were updated by seagate after their production due to on-board circuit problems (or so I read). To date I've purchased 6 total, but two of them were DOA and needed to be RMA'd for new ones. Yeah it's good to have spares, but your situation may be different.

5 out of 5 eggs5 years of service

Pros: Unlike many who complained about this drive, I had no problems (until a month ago). The desktop was on 90% of the time. No complaints about the service this drive delivered.

Cons: All good things must come to an end. Windows complains about hardware storage issues and freezes regularly. Time to replace.

Other Thoughts: This drive was used in a case with 3 fans(Thermaltake), kept cool and as a result delivered good service. I suspect many who had problems used enclosures with insufficient cooling, therefore problems

3 out of 5 eggsNot Terrible

Pros: Lasted 5 years in a RAID with a 1 TB drive. Very reasonably priced (when it was purchased)

Cons: Shorter than expected product life

Other Thoughts: This is the first hard drive that's ever failed on me, but it's part of the first computer I built. So, it's pretty disappointing.

3 out of 5 eggsDied after three years

Pros: It works well when it is alive.

Cons: Hot, relatively short life

Other Thoughts: It died after 25932 hours (i.e. 1081 days) of use.
Thank goodness to its S.M.A.R.T., it warned before its death so I had the opportunity to back up. Its temperature is 45°C while the temperatures of other drives in the same case are below 40°C

4 out of 5 eggsGood, Fast, But Annoying Seek Noise

Pros: Fast

Cons: Seek noise

Other Thoughts: (This is for the 500GB version of this HD)
I got me one of these used and would otherwise have no reason to complain. The drive is fast..has 32MB of cache and well, does everything a HD is supposed to do.

However the seek noise, although faint and subtle drives me bonkers. I am not used to hearing HDs anymore (except from back in the early 90s) - I have two older Hitachi Deskstars in there which you can't hear at all so I am baffled about that those drives still have a seek noise that constantly reminds me about the drive being there. (I would prefer a constant motor or fan noise over a faint, but audible sudden seeking any day). By the way my drive is mounted on rubber grommets which is supposed to dampen noise...

I don't know whether the newer Barracudas (7200.12 etc.) still have this issue.

Mind you: These old 7200.11 Barracudas had a lot of issues so the first thing I did was updating the firmware to the latest SD1A.

Now, I have a number of 140mm fans and an air condition running right behind me, I am certainly not a "Quiet PC" enthusiast, not even remotely, but I can see this drive being not optimal for those who want a "real" quiet system.

Otherwise the drive is fine.
