1 out of 5 eggsI would not pay $25 to own this drive again

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Very decent price for 2 TB, quiet.

Cons: Probably the absolutely worst HDD I have ever owned in my life. Speeds were advertised as 150Mb/s, yet I cannot get my Built PC (With a 4.4 GHz quad-core Intel CPU) to boot up to the desktop in under 8 minutes. Everything that could be wrong with this hard drive is wrong. Reading speeds are off the charts; in the negative direction.
Absolutely Unreliable. Luckily, I had a back up hooked up when this drive decided to fail me (Multiple times). After going into the details and analyzing this Hard drive, I found out that the drivers are from JANUARY 2006 WITH NO UPDATES AVAILABLE, ever. No wonder the price is so low. Unfortunately I fell for it.

Owned for about 9 months.

Other Thoughts: Now selling this garbage and buying a a WD HDD along with a 500GB Samsung 850 Evo SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsHasn't broke yet

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Plenty of storage, not loud, hasn't broke.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I now have two of these for just data storage in my primary desktop. I've had one for over a year and so I decided to buy another. They're just hard drives so there's not much to say about them, but they don't make a ton of noise and they haven't failed on me so that's about all I really hope for.

1 out of 5 eggshttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=22-148-834

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap Price, Lots of Storage, 7200 RPM 6Gbps
HDD Tune showing avg 150Mbps on a Gigabyte Z68 MB with 8Gb of DDR3 1600 memory. Burst rate near 250 Mbs

Cons: I bought 2 of these drives some time ago but was not able to install them due to a severe injury. I got to it about 2 months ago, running SMART tests on it I've already got several categories highlighted in Yellow, including Spin Retry Count and a number of "unknown attributes that are with a point or a few points of failure threshold.

Other Thoughts: These are my main 2 drives and both are exhibiting same yellow flagged failures. I'm copying my data over to 2 ancient WD 400G drives. I plan on getting new WD Black drives and dumping these before they dump me.
Budget drives...Budget Reliability. For now on I'll save my wasted money by spending a bit more up front rather than losing alot on the back end.

1 out of 5 eggsST20000DM001

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Drive failed to hold a format. Seagate replace it after 30 days of ownership. I let it sit in the original bag for a few months until it was needed. Formatted fine, then chkdsk /r failed. SeaTools Self Test failed. Warranty showed out of warranty. So this basically new drive is going to the landfill. Sad.

Other Thoughts: I have trusted Seagate for over a decade. I have heard from my IT tech peers that Seagate reliability has gone WAY down in the past year or two, especially for drives larger than 1 GB. Maybe this is related to the Maxtor merger? This is my 3rd Seagate failure in 6 months. Next drive will be WD or something else.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive has had zero problems so far, lots of storage, standard mechanical drive speeds, good price. I have been buying Seagate for quite some time now and never have had an issue with them, and just throwing this out there, I have an ANCIENT 10gb Seagate harddrive sitting right here that still works, so that gives me good hopes about this drive. But in all seriousness this drive is definitely worth the money.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsSeagate Quality has really gone down

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: We own a computer repair shop.
We will no longer Seagate hard drives to our clients.
The failure rate on Seagate 1.5TB, 2TB and ESPECIALLY their 3TB drives is so bad it's amazing they can sell such a terrible product.

Not sure what's going on at Seagate, but it did not used to be this way pre-2011 from my recollection, and I've been in this business a long time.

WD = solid drives.

HGST - Extremely low fail rates, the best we believe in terms of quality at this time.

Just RMA'ed one of these exact 2TB models and guess what... the recertified drive wouldn't even spin out of the box. So many clients have lost data from failing Seagate drives and unfortunately Apple uses them in their Time Capsules.

PLEASE DO NOT BUY SEAGATE HIGH CAPACITY DRIVES

I don't write many reviews but the failure rate is so astounding I needed to warn others.



The amount of failures we see is overwhelmingly young, 1-2 year old Seagates including this model.

Cons: Extraordinarily high failure rate
