1 out of 5 eggsTwo dead drives

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

Pros: Quiet before it died

Cons: This was the second drive I had fail on me. The first was right out of the box and then last night less then 30 days the second drive failed. I use to have such good luck with Seagate. Think it might be a while before buying from them again.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

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

Pros: -Good space, decent read times, wasn't broken.

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: After using SSDs it's easy to see why more and more people gravitate toward them but the price still doesn't match what a HDD can get you.

5 out of 5 eggs- Nice 1TB SATA spin drive

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

Pros: - Makes a great storage/backup HDD, or a nice main HDD for a starter build.
- Easily installed in any mobo/PC 8 years old to modern.
- Faster than WD Blue drives, and about the same as WD Black series.

Cons: -None. Been working well for me for years now no issues at all.

Other Thoughts: - Used for OS-system images/ backups/Music/Data now with a Sandisk SSD as primary OS drive. Great combo.

1 out of 5 eggspoor performance

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

Pros: none

Cons: As usual, horrible shipping. Anything thin-line is garbage. Be careful what you think is a bargain when in fact it's deceiving as well. Even the labels don't look REAL anymore and none of these drives perform any better than a 5400 rpm with the old 2mb cache! It's horrible so if you are looking for something that runs fast, don't come here to find it! So far this is a perfect score of disappointment.

3 out of 5 eggsThey seem to last about a year before they fail.

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

Pros: Fast and relatively inexpensive.

Cons: I purchased two of these drives for a RAID 1 setup. The first one failed after 11 months and the second one just failed after 15 months. I leave my computer on 24x7 and perhaps that is just too much for them, I don't know. I replaced the first failed drive with the updated model number of the same drive. The latest will be replaced with one that is suppose to be for 24x7 operation, Seagate as well. I guess I'll see which one lasts the longest.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear David,

We would like to note that for RAID systems that run 24/7, our NAS HDD would be better suited for your systems. Please reference the following link for additional details on this drive:

Please first check the Hardware Compatibility List from the RAID manufacturer to make sure this drive is listed.

Regarding your 1TB Desktop drives, we would like the opportunity to talk with you to determine the root cause and available resolution.

1 out of 5 eggsUpdated review after 4 yrs of use

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

Pros: Single platter 1TB drive for under $100. Light weight, allows for excellent handling for file compression.

Cons: Update---Drive's I/O interface failed after four years of use. The dirve motor was still running but the I/O would not work. This should not happen after only four years. I have never had a WD drive fail like this before. Some of my WD drives are nine years old and still healthy and going strong. As such, will not buy Seagate again.

Surprisingly difficult to format. Bought two of these for my server (one as a primary and one back up drive). Neither would successfully format on my server (Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition) Had to attachment them to an XP box to get them to complete a good format. Once formatted, my server recognized them and all is good. Found that very strange.

Other Thoughts: First time in a long while I have bought Seagate. I usually buy WDs for their reliability and performace. Bought these as they were nearly $20 cheaper for the same size, cache and performance as the WDs. (HDD prices are too high anyway, they need to come down). Gave it three stars due format problems and that fact I can't comment on reliability yet. Will in about two years. The drives they replaced were 6 years old which were WD Black editions.
