3 out of 5 eggsTwo Year Death

Pros: Made life amazing for me when it still worked, large storage and good transfer rate.

Cons: Died after 28 months of owning.

Other Thoughts: This drive will only last about 2 years, look for a better drive that will last for a long time, or use it as a storage drive in stead of the OS hard drive

2 out of 5 eggsDud?

Pros: Reasonably priced.

Cons: I must have got a dud.

Other Thoughts: Been having game crashes and BSOD issues. I downloaded and ran Seagate's SeaTools to diagnose and repair the HD. Repairs failed. Has a 24 month limited warranty and I am in month 25. Just as well, I am switching to SSDs.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after 2 years

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Failed after 2 years

Other Thoughts: Even though I bought this HDD with a 2 year warranty almost exactly 2 years ago (4/1/2013), Seagate's RMA checker reports it is out of warranty. Fortunately I was able to salvage the important data off of it before it completely died, but this kind of reliability is unacceptable. I won't be recommending Seagate anymore (even though the Barracuda XT is supposedly better).

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a Hard Disk Drive

Pros: Hasn't failed on me, and stores lots of data.

Cons: After owning a SSD, this thing feels slower that before.. but for a HDD, this is still great!

5 out of 5 eggsGoing strong 3+ years

Pros: I purchased these in June of 2011. I initially had them in a Raid 1 setup. I've sense given one to my wife, and have one in main rig with all my steam games. I've had zero issues which is more than what I can say about my ssd purchases. Three out of the five I've purchased still work. :)

Cons: I wish I would've bought more before the prices went up! I'll probably end up picking up a few more now though.

Other Thoughts: I've had good luck with seagate and western digital. You can't go wrong either way.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away!

Pros: Cheap. 7200 RPM.

Cons: Cheap. Originally purchased 2/2013. Just now failed (only lasted 2 yrs). Not detected in BIOS, makes consistent clicking noises.

I originally bought this as a replacement for my parents' computer. Quite a lot of family photos, homework, music, etc. are all potentially lost (they don't do backups... yeah, I know).

Still covered under warranty, but obviously it's the data, not the drive, that's valuable.

I'm going to try swapping out the Controller Board and praying that works. If it fails, I can't afford $1000+ clean room data recovery fees and will be out of luck.

Seagate is well known for making drives with higher-than-normal failure rates. STAY AWAY!
