1 out of 5 eggsAwful drives

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None

Cons: Three years ago, I bought three of these drives. One I had to RMA immediately - and the other two have failed one at a time - one right after the warranty was up - the other this week (barely at the three year mark).

Other Thoughts: I doubt I will buy a seagate drive anytime soon, this series is a bad batch, but the poor customer service has left a sour taste on this one.

2 out of 5 eggsBack up often!

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive offers good performance and a low price/GB.

Cons: Failure rate is high. I own 4 of these drives in a RAID5 configuration (3+1).
All the drives failed prior to the 2 year warranty expiration (in one case, two failed within a day of each other). Constantly RMA-ing these drives has been nothing short of painful (1-2 week process) and has lead to data loss requiring a restore of the entire array contents. All failures except one were spindle related so there were no SMART predictive alerts.

Other Thoughts: I own a slew of 2TB HGST drives in a older array. Those drives are 2-4 yrs old and not a single failure to date.

5 out of 5 eggsHOT HOT HOT!

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: No problems yet.
I use this drive for temporary backups for clients as i work on their computers. For the price, you really cant beat it.
After seeing how hot this thing runs, and then reading the reviews, i contacted Newegg and found that i can get the warranty up to 30 days after purchase!
Win for Newegg once again!
Now I have the peace of mind of an extended warranty.

GET THE NEWEGG WARRANTY

Cons: This thing burns at an average of 50c just idle!
During use - an average of 65c!!!!

Keep in mind that I have three other drives in my system and they all burn at an average of 30c.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: cheap

Cons: cheaply made
these drives have the highest failure rate on the market.
Do not buy any seagate 3tb drives they have close to 90% failure rate after 1 year.

Other Thoughts: Studies have shown the failure rate do not buy.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this drive

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: large capacity, speedy, works when it does work

Cons: Bad apple, quality a shadow of former self

Other Thoughts: Purchased this on Nov 23, 2012. Nearly a month ago, the drive half-died on me. By half-died, it went ka-put but power-cycle (power down, power on) brings it back to life. It can be detected on start up, but reading data off of certain random areas takes a while. Worse yet is that some data became unreadable. Fortunately I was able to barely move essential files to another working drive, despite that it took hours for that to get done.

This is one of the drive models that Backblaze uses in their storage systems. It had one of the worst failure rate out of the drives they've ran and used. Yet I don't put the kind of strain or load, the drive still couldn't live longer than it should have. I thought I could trust Seagate with the kind of reliability that they had. But I guess they've really gone downhill.

I don't think it's worth getting Seagate drives any more. It's disappointing when a company as big and as reputable as Seagate starts throwing out bad drives that couldn't last longer than their biggest competitor: Western Digital.

Conclusion: avoid this drive like the plague.

3 out of 5 eggsNot the Safest, but the Cheapest

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: These drives are cheap and they have good specs/performance. Can't argue with that.

Cons: These die really fast. If you have one for over two years, I would suggest replacing them asap. I had 2 fail on me in just over 2 years (just after the warranty expired). I had a third one which was external (same model HD though), that died after about that amount of time.

Other Thoughts: Get at least 2 of them and put them in some kind of RAID redundancy. They're cheap enough that you can do that. Like I said, I had 2 that ended up dying on me, but I still bought 3 more because I can RAID them and not worry too much about losing data.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid like the plague.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None. Waste your money if you want to. Only gave it 1 egg because I had to. It really should be a ZERO.

Cons: These drives will fail. Remember the IBM Deathstar dives from 20 years ago. These 3 tb drives are in the same class.
I am not anti seagate, just these particular drives.
Look up the comments on Backblaze's Blog about them.
I quote "Only 251 of the 4,190 Seagate 3TB hard drives deployed in 2012 are still in service as of March 31, 2015."

I wouldn't take one if they were free with free shipping.
My own personal experience has been that 4 out of 7 drives have failed. All of the failures were just after warranty.

Other Thoughts: Several years ago i bought several "as" series Seagate drives. Those drives had high failure rates.

2 out of 5 eggs*review update*

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 5 stars for the MyServicePlan extended warranty service! They have refunded my purchase in the form of a newegg gift card rather than the undesirable option of getting another one of these flawed models. And it only took 2 days to process!! Kudos to MyServicePlan!

Cons: see original review.

2 out of 5 eggsDied shortly after 2 year warranty period.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked while it lasted.

Bundled with a MyServicePlan extended warranty service, hopefully they come through and I don't get burned a second time.

Cons: Coincidence that it died shortly after manufacturer warranty?

BackBlaze reports a ridiculously high failure rate for this specific model.

Other Thoughts: I own quite a bit of high capacity drives across various manufacturers and like the title states, this is the only one that has stopped working out of blue (click of death?) just months after the manufacturer period expired (my other drives are past warranty and are still in working condition). I would like to think I keep all of my drives under hospital conditions (non-moving, dry environment, and an intake fan to keep cool) but that just wasn't enough. I gave Seagate the benefit of the doubt but they have really let me down in customer faith.
