2 out of 5 eggsPoor Reliability

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Ample storage

Cons: In case you're not already aware, these drives have a pretty high failure rate. This high failure rate was quantified by the Cloud Storage company Backblaze. If you haven't seen the report you should look it up and read it over before buying one of these drives. On average these drives only last between 2 and 3 years. I didn't realize any of this 3-years ago when I purchased three of these drives to be used in a RAID-5 mdadm array. Since then I have had one drive fail hard and another that has a high number of bad sectors that I expect to fail any time. This all occurred just after the 2-year manufacturer warranty expired. Fortunately since I configured these drives in a RAID array from the get go I have never lost any data. After the first drive failed I read the report created by Backblaze and decided to replace the failed drive with another more reliable brand (WD Black edition). I plan to do the same when the other drives inevitably fail.

Other Thoughts: I would definitively not recommend these drives. If you simply can't afford anything else please ensure that you have a good backup strategy.

1 out of 5 eggsHigh failure rate, warranty not honored TWICE. 2 out of 4 died

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: garbage, but competitively priced garbage

Cons: Bought 3 of these for a RAID 5 in January 2013. One failed after 20 months. Warranty is 24 months. Seagate told me to stick it.
Bought another one to replace dead one in array in Oct 2015, that one lasted 4 months. Is Seagate going to honor the warranty and replace THIS one?! Flat out no. Terrible products. Terrible customer service. 2 out of 4 died in under 24 months, both were refused to be replaced under warranty. Buy Western Digital.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product.

Pros: Worked nicely for just over 2 years....

Cons: Then 3 out of 4 failed.

Pros: This did last me about 2 years, but now i lost everything. Turn on one day and screams, then fails.. Part of lawsuit should require seagate to recovery data lost.

Cons: This did last me about 2 years, but now i lost everything. Turn on one day and screams, then fails.. Part of lawsuit should require seagate to recovery data lost.

1 out of 5 eggs3 out of 4 failed in first 30 days

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None? I bought 4 for a RAID 10 setup. They failed so quickly, I'm glad I didn't have any important data on them. It's pretty poor product that fails faster than a raid can sustain in a short amount of time.

Cons: Title says it all.

Other Thoughts: Never been a Seagate fan. Decided I'd reverse my prejudice. Mistakes were made.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear John,

We apologize for the problems with your 3TB Desktop drives in your RAID system and would like to talk with you to determine the root cause and an available resolution.

A case has been created in our records based on your Newegg name that shows your review and our response. Please contact us directly using the following link:

2 out of 5 eggsBought Two. Both Died.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Decent price for a big drive in 2012.

Cons: 100% failure rate.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these as redundant media drives in 10/12. Exactly three years later, one died. Then three months later before I could replace it, the other one died. What are the odds??? I am now trying to recover my data from either one. Guess these were just built to die.

1 out of 5 eggsBought 2 More - Both Defective

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Have used these drives without ANY issues for a couple of years in a JBOD array for film work on My Mac.

Cons: Bought 2 drives for PC backup, both drives defective. One had a 1/4" gash in the circuit board on the bottom, the other would only format to 2048KB - not the usual 2.7GB. Tried to reformat in my Windows 10 and XP machines - no go. Bottom line returning both of these.

Other Thoughts: Would have recommended based on previous experience with Seagate drives. Cannot recommend based on the current experience.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Greg,

We apologize for the problems experienced with your 3TB Desktop drives.

Please try using our DiscWizard utility to determine if you can format the drive to the proper capacity.

http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/discwizard/

Also, try using SeaTools for DOS to see if you can set the drive capacity to the max using the advanced options:

http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/

We would like to talk with you to determine an available resolution to the drive with the physical damage to the controller board. A support case (#05313978) has been created that will reference your review and our response. Please contact us directly using the following link:

Best Regards,
Seagate Support
