4 out of 5 eggsMade me worried

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: Massive storage. Darn good transfer speeds for a spindle based hdd.

Cons: Odd rattling noise for the first 2 months, but it stopped.

Other Thoughts: I found it very distressing to find out that my hard drive was rattling like crazy. Then as time went on, it subsided so i guess its ok now? Guess i will find out in a year or two, but for now this is a very very good hard drive!

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I asked for

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: Super snappy, high read and write speed. Tons of space. Easy to install. Came with a SATA cable and a power adapter.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just a heads up, for those who don't know Windows 7 Home Premium puts a cap at 2TB per HDD.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

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: Fast, Cheap

Cons: Worry.

Other Thoughts: Had two of these in a NAS and one in a PC as storage for over a year now, the NAS is on almost 24/7 and the PC not far behind, all three retail box drives. So far so good, they are plenty fast, faster than the WD Black 2TB's I replaced, they run fairly cool, aren't overly noisy imo, and SMART says they are all good. I'm still nervous by all the complaints I see about them failing, but my 3 drive sample is still fine so far. I would not run them without a good mirror/backup of some sort, but they have been great so far.

3 out of 5 eggsdied dead in a year

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: if it works, it works well
a lot of storage

Cons: dumb me didn't have backups and this thing randomly up and quit in a year and four months

Other Thoughts: maybe seagate isn't the way to go... my western digital hard drive has been running just fine for four years. but, i learned to make back ups just in case!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat.

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: First time buying a drive in 10 years. Its been a year since I have purchased and have not had an issue. A little tricky to make the drive the full 3 TB. MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE PARTITION STYLE FROM "MBR" TO "GPT". Do this before installing anything on this drive. Using MBR will only allow 2.2TB.

Cons: none

3 out of 5 eggsDidn't last long

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: High capacity. Reads pretty fast.

Cons: I've had this drive for about 2 years now. It worked really well but it seems like it didn't last as long as I wanted it to. Drive died all of sudden. Had this drive almost filled up and that's when it decided it wanted to die on me.

Other Thoughts: 1TB Western digital drive with my operating system on it that I've had longer than this drive is still going strong. Seagate said they would recover the data $500 so do yourself a favor and make sure you buy a drive that's built last especially if you want to keep the same drive for a long time.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Drive

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, included software to allowed XP to utilize the drive, has worked flawlessly for over a year and no bad sectors. It was also less expensive than comparative brands.

Cons: Not silent and runs a bit warm. Given the price I expected these things.

Other Thoughts: The drive is used in a general purpose home PC. Formatted (NTFS) with two partitions totaling 2736GB.
