5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Drive For The Price

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: > Great drive for the money
> Reliable
> Fast


This is the fourth Seagate Barracuda 1TB drive of this model I have purchased for myself, and I have used it in a number of builds for friends. It's a great drive and I have never experienced a single failure.

While some have experienced DOAs and failures (as can be expected with any mechanical device, irrespective of brand), Seagate says that a large percentage of the drives returned to them test fine when they inspect them. So far, my experience with this particular drive has been great.

I would even consider purchasing a refurbished version of this drive but there is only a few dollars difference in the price and the new ones come with a three year warranty verses a one year warranty for the refurbs.

One reason I keep coming back to this particular drive is its performance which, while not approaching SSD performance, is excellent for a hard drive.

Using ATTO benchmarking software I measured Sequential Read speeds of 194.830 MB/s and Sequential Write speeds of 191.484 MB/s.

Using CrystalDiskMark benchmarking software I measured Sequential Read speeds of 208.7 MB/s and Sequential Write speeds of 189.1. 4K Random Read speed was 0.747 MB/s and Random Write speed was 1.308 MB/s.

This is outstanding performance for a hard drive and I have measured similar speeds on all of the Seagate 1TB Barracudas I have tested.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: The drive arrived in a box packed inside of a very heavy/thick bubble sleeve/pocket and had additional standard bubble wrap around the sleeve. Packing was very good.

A note to those who might use this drive for System Image backups: Because this drive is 7200 RPM, and has very high storage density, it can create a System Image ~35% faster than the Western Digital 1TB My Passport Ultra drives (and also the equivalent Seagate external drives). In my own situation, the WD 1TB Ultra external drive takes 14:30 minutes to create a System Image of my desktop, while the Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" drive does it in just 9:41 minutes using a USB 3.0 connection (of course, you do have to supply 12V power to the Barracuda as USB supplies only 5V).

I ordered a Rosewill RX-358 U3C powered enclosure to house the Barracuda and it includes a 12V power supply as well as USB 3.0 and eSATA cables. Connecting the Barracuda directly to a SATA connection (rather than USB 3.0) results the System Image being created about 25 seconds faster. It's not particularly portable, but it's fassst.

For $54.99 (on sale) you would be hard-pressed to find a better drive for the money.

Highly recommended.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Know

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It shipped and arrived quickly.

Cons: Never got a chance to use it. The case was bent above the connections. I thought it might just be cosmedic damage so I installed it (in a new build). When I tried to install the OS it sounded like a shopping cart with a bad wheel.

I returned it for a refund and purchased another one locally.

Other Thoughts: The drive was well packed and no damage to box.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless....

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None.

Cons: I installed it on my computer and it booted up fine. When I started putting files in there it started to screech and making noise. The hard drive would also disappear from my hard drive list. I ran seatool and ran a test it told me it failed an important test due to bad sectors. This drive basically came in DOA. Really wishing not purchasing this brand again... I want a refund!!!
