5 out of 5 eggsbarracuda 1tb

Pros: only use it for back-up. Has run maybe 30 minutes in 3 years. Fires right up, loads my files speedy-quick, and then it gets put back in the case.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: None of my 5 seagate hard drives has ever failed. My first "FreeAgent" 250Gb desktop model (2007) had a circut failure in the case - the dreaded "click of death" - click -click - click, BUT, I busted it out of the case & stuck it in a docking bay and all has been fine now for 2 years.

5 out of 5 eggsBest HD I've ever had. 6 years and still going strong!

Pros: - Never lost any data.
- Always load into my games faster than my friends without SSDs.
- Insane value when I bought it.
- Very reliable and long lasting (6 years and still going!).

Cons: - I cannot think of a single con. This is a very nice hard drive.

Other Thoughts: - I would definitely recommend this to someone purchasing a HD years ago. Right now, the price doesnt justify this purchase, but if you get it at a discount, you will fall in love. It is fast and reliable. It will do its job.

4 out of 5 eggs2+ years and going strong.

Pros: Its a hard drive and it stores my data, consistently, without crashing. That is a plus enough for me given a lot of other hard drives will die on you in much quicker time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not sure why so many negative reviews around this hard drive, perhaps people just have bad luck or a bad batch of drives? If you can get in at a reasonable price, I would get one again.

2 out of 5 eggswow these things burn quick...

Pros: cheap, ughm.. meaning inexpensive

Cons: well, I have a raid array of these on my home server... and replaced two, soon to replace the third.. doesnt show much for the device if 3/4 went down so quick..

Other Thoughts: weird.. I was always a seagate fanboy until I got involved with this product... replacing way too many of them.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, not great.

Pros: Worked out of the box.

Cons: Simply decided it had had enough after 2 1/2 years. No warning, just went pfft!

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid, I guess I got my money's worth. Would have liked a little warning before it failed but fortunately I had everything backed up recently.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked for 4 years

Pros: worked well while it worked. It lasted 4 years and 2 months. the last year it was barely used since i turned it into a secondary drive as i had upgraded to ssd. kind of expected more from it though.

Cons: thought it might last longer, but 4 years is good enough. i've had worse.

5 out of 5 eggs4 Years and Still Going Strong

Pros: Large capacity, inexpensive, reliable, and durable. Purchased four of these HDDs in 2011 for $49.99 each, and they've been running 24/7 since without a glitch. Would buy more at a similar price point.

Cons: The price is now $115.59

5 out of 5 eggs4 years and counting

Pros: I bought 2 of these in 2011 and they still run fine. It's been over 4 years, but I don't expect them to last forever so I will be backing up on something new. I lift my computer up a lot for various reasons and they didn't get damaged.

Cons: Wish it were more than 1TB. Price is higher than other Seagates of the same size but they seem durable.

Other Thoughts: I'm scared to buy a bigger Seagate HD now... lots of bad reviews
