This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Fairly decent speeds, would be better with more of them in a good array. No real issues with the drive

Cons: Never large enough.
Could use more cache.

Other Thoughts: Great drive, I am overall really happy with it.

2 out of 5 eggsIt Died

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Large Capacity - Fast - Quiet

Cons: Drive was delievered on Feb 25 as part of a new build and as of March 15, it's already failed. It didn't even make 20 days of use before failing.

Other Thoughts: Thankfully, I lost no data since I don't trust any drive until 90 days have passed and this one failed in 20. It's annoying when Windows Updates forces a reboot and the system hangs because a drive is no longer responding.

In my experience, drives either fail within 90 days or they live forever - I've still got working IDE drives that are over 20 years old but the newest ones don't seem to be as well built.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother One Bites the Dust

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Was a good-egg price at the time of purchase

Cons: 3rd Seagate Desktop drive to fail in last 2 months

Other Thoughts: While Seagate will replace drives under warranty, the replace them with USED/Reconditioned drives! What a pile! Have a mix of Seagate, WD-RED & BLACK, and Hitachi drives in my Windows Home Server and only the Seagate drives are reporting sector errors and total failure. I can't believe they are still in business with these cheap drives made in China that fail so often. I've spent many lost hours of productivity rebuilding my home server because of these! Be warned.

4 out of 5 eggsIncorrect model number in firmware

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: Price, size, performance.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: It should be noted that the firmware incorrectly identifies this HDD as model "ST3000DM001-1CH166" when in fact, it is model "STBD30001000" which has implications when users attempt to query drive in the seagate firmware finder website. The incorrect model is not in their database and will error out when users attempt to query it + their serial number. Using the "STBD..." model number does work. For those interested, mine has firmware version CC29 and according to the seagate database, this is current.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat hard drive for the price

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: -2.7TB usable storage
-Fast at 7200rpm
-Easy to set up - To bypass Windows 2.1TB drive limit you must partition the drive. This is very easy to do with the Seagate DiskWizard software, just be sure to select the partitioned format (GPT) rather than the standard MBR.
-Good documentation

Cons: It may just be my desktop case but the drive seemed a little wider than my other HDD and the sides got a bit scuffed up while installing it into its slot. Not a big enough deal to take an egg off or anything.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: I bought it as a storage locations for my HD home videos. I didn't expect this to be fast. However, when copying files from SSD to this disk, I noticed sustained write speed of around 200 MB/s. That is close to the performance of as SSD on SATA 3.

Cons: Haven't seen or experienced anything yet.

Other Thoughts: Using this on a newly built PC with AMD FX-8350 CPU and a new motherboard with SATA 6 - these things help get the best out of the drive.

1 out of 5 eggsHard Drive Failed within a few days.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: None!

Cons: Hard drive failed incredibly fast.

Other Thoughts: Failed within a few days after transferring all of my files to the drive. This is the last time I buy a HDD or any other product from Seagate. I had a 1TB HDD from them that failed as well. Horrible, just horrible. I don't usually review items but this is the only time I really had a bad experience.

3 out of 5 eggsDecided against

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: It's a large drive at a good price

Cons: After more research:
1. There are too many people having issues with this drive
2. Working above 2TB is kind of a pain unless starting from scratch. I have a suite of drives with complex raid arrays. Mixing this in is doable but unpleasant.
3. I call shenanigans on Seagate's take on SMART data. I don't want pass/fail in windows only seatools. I want to know the direction the drive is heading before it gets there. I saw things I didn't want to see in SMART data. They can either comply with the standard or not have my business.

5 out of 5 eggsGood HDD

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD3000100 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Kit -Retail kit

Pros: I have had good luck using Seagate drives. I have 6 of the 3TB drives in two desk tops & 4 of the 2TB drives in the these same builds. So far they are are all alive & well.
I use these drives for storage & I use SSD's for my C drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I haven't tried the 4 TB drives but I will in future builds.
