4 out of 5 eggsgood drive

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

Pros: good drive,fast in my sys. had these for over a year no with no probs. got 2 of them for a new build.installed them, and configured them as raid 0 at the time of 8.1 installation. gives me 2 tb that I will never use but price was great. in passmark performance test from day one until now,my results are almost as fast as ssd in most tests. faster in seq r/w's ,however in ramdom r/w's it doesn't come close to an ssd...but with all I do with these hd's ,deleteing,and re-writes, ttf and reliability was more important.very happy with these.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: didn't,have the cash at the time but 10k rpm would be outstanding .these are faster than my older 10k velociraptors that are 80g and have only a 16 mb buffer.

5 out of 5 eggsLots of room/Low 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: Really great price, got it on sale for $70 and am happy with it.

Cons: On occasion my disk usage is high on the task manager and things will run slowly for a minute or so but this is probably just things running in the background. This always goes away pretty quickly.

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

Pros: Worked for awhile, was slower than it was supposed to be.

Cons: Seagate drive never worked right from day one. After a year it completely burned out during normal use.

Other Thoughts: Worse HDD I've ever bought. Seagate use to be a good product. Now I don't know.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for awhile.

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 worked some what.

Cons: Hard drive never function properly from day one. It was slower than the usual hard drives of this type I normally buy.
Then out of the blue it burned up on me after one year of normal use.
No matter what I tried I could not get it to work again
Off to RMA.

Other Thoughts: I'm really disappointed by this HDD. Ones I've bought in the past worked really well. But that was years ago. I'll not buy this brand again.

5 out of 5 eggsgood product

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

Pros: Got it for a build i was making for my wife. Pairing it with an ssd and using for storage. It serves it purpose well and haven't had any issues. Installation was also trouble free.

Cons: doesn't come with a sata cable. This is common with drives, however it's something to be aware of if you don't already have one.

Other Thoughts: will update if it fails but as of now i recommend.

2 out of 5 eggsGoing to replace soon

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

Pros: The drive(s) seem to work.

Cons: Since day one these drives have been making a clicking or quacking sound which I normally associate with a drive nearing the end of its life. Even if it is a non-fatal problem, the noise is irritating. None have failed yet, nor does SMART indicate any issues, but I'm still going to replace them soon.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive and Reliable

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

Pros: This drive was bought as a games drive for a customers gaming HTPC rebuild.

These Seagate Barracuda 1TB drives are great for their price point. I have used many of them in different builds and they have all worked wonderfully, this one was no exception.

The performance of these drives is well documented, and well within reason for their price point. They lend themselves quite well as additional storage as well as great drives to store your ever expanding games library. While you may want to go with something a bit faster, or an SSD, for your competitive online gaming, for everything else they perform wonderfully.

They also work well as a primary/single system drive. There are faster HDD options out there, and SSD's of course, but for it's price, these are a viable option if cost is a real concern.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These drives are a tried and true credit to the Seagate lineup.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY unless you love replacing drives

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

Pros: Fast & cheap
Runs cool

Cons: Dies within a year. Replacement died within a month. $10 each time you want to get a warranty replacement.

Other Thoughts: I have 7 Seagate drives and a Hitachi in a RAID 5 + hot spare configuration. 3 of the Seagate drives were an older model and 4 of this model were purchased within the past year. Of the 4 drives of this model (ST1000DM03), 4 have failed within the past year! One of those was a replacement that has been running less than a year! Had it not been for my RAID controller and running in a RAID 5 + hot spare, I would have lost THOUSANDS of hours of work for clients plus all of my pictures for the past 15 years. (Yes, I do have backups and they take a long time to restore.) They're all under warranty but it costs me $10 for shipping/handling, etc plus downtime to replace the drive. Right now, I have 2 drives failed and so I am running without a hot spare and in degraded mode without any hardware redundancy. Needless to say, backups are being done nearly constantly.

I have ample filtered power and cooling. I have extra power filtering on the +12V and +5V power to the drives even! My RAID controller monitors the drives and the drive-reported temperature never goes above 95 degrees F, so it's not airflow or cooling.

I would strongly suggest if you're using these drives, replace them with something reliable. If you're considering purchasing these drives, DON'T!
