3 out of 5 eggsDont buy just because its a "Barracuda"

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: specs are decent,
7200 rpm
2 yr warranty is better than 1 year.
It comes in Seagate packaging, though mine was visibly damaged.

Cons: This is a ST3000DM001 drive sold as a kit. The kit consists of Seagate packaging. I didn’t get any drive software that is supposed to come with a kit (per Seagate)

Other Thoughts: This is the same drive as the "Desktop" bare drive model. Even the photo no longer references being a "Barracuda" drive. Apparently this is just a marketing ploy to get an extra $15 from you. It appears that the desktop bare drive only carries a 1 yr warranty. Its your call...

I did not know this was the same drive.

1 out of 5 eggsCrapped out After Warrany

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: Not much at all

Cons: Has 2 year limited warranty. 5 months after warranty expired and with no warning it failed. Left computer running, came back from a trip to the movies and drive letters for this drive were missing. Rebooted and BIOS bootup stopped at hard drive failure imminent, back up data and replace the drive.

Well, there was no stat to back up, the hard drive will not come on line, tried new cables and tried different SATA slots. It's dead. From no warning and passing hardware diagnostics 2 day prior to dead. It does spin up, but is dead.

Luckily I always backup to my 3T and 4T USB 2.0 external hard drives and just did so days ago, so no data is lost. But it is sad we are now supposed to expect about 2-3 years for HDs. Back before China made most of the HDs we consume, I remember drives lasting decades. Now the are disposable throw aways good for a few years. Normally months after the "warranty"

Sure, large drives are cheap compared to just 5 years ago, but I would pay more for more stable, longer lasting equipment. It's sad we HAVE to keep daily and or weekly backups on 2nd or even 3rd drives to ensure our data isn't lost (i am not giving up my personal data to a "secure" cloud)

Other Thoughts: NOT buying another Seagate

4 out of 5 eggs

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: Lots of space, sometimes on sale for a reasonable price.

Cons: Bought 3, one just died after 1y 10m of 24/7 service with 2680 reallocated sectors.

Other Thoughts: The other 2 drives running in the same environment have no reallocated sectors, they have a different DOM then the 1 that failed so hopefully they are from a better batch.

Just ordered 2 more to replace and expand the raid array, so far so good.

1 out of 5 eggs*** DO NOT BUY ***

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: Pros: good value per TB, if the drive worked

Cons: Cons: Drive failed within three days of install. Catastrophic failure, not recognized by any OS.

Other Thoughts: I owned this drive for about 30 months before I ever installed it. Purchased in November 2012 and stored since then. Thought it was a sound purchase at the time, but I'll go back to Western Digital after this experience.

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: Lots of space. Worked right out of the box. Decent price.

Cons: A bit slower than I'd hoped. Transferring files from another drive took longer than I expected. Though I can't rule out user error. 4 stars is probably overly harsh, 4.5 would be fair.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for about 6 months, then 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: At the time of purchase, this Seagate drive had a pretty good dollar-to-GB ratio...a good price. Good amount of storage

Cons: This drive worked for about six months, then died. I was running Ubuntu Linux on it, then it failed to boot yesterday. Yuck.

Other Thoughts: If you visit BackBlaze's blog on their website, there is an article about how they've had an unusually bad experience with Seagate drives like this one. I was really hoping that the failures wouldn't bite me too, but they did.

I ended up purchasing a Western Digital to replace this failed drive, and now get to go through Seagate's warranty process, hoping for the best.

4 out of 5 eggsLasted 18 months

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: Did it's thing on a desktop that was never turned off and used aggressively, probably could have lasted longer on someone's desktop that used it more gently (a lot of read/writes going on here).

Cons: None really, other than it did die.

5 out of 5 eggsWorking well so far...

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: Pretty good value, seems to be working quite well as a heavily-used ata drive. It's been running 24/7 for 3.5 months without any errors or timeouts. We'll see if this lasts - hoping...

Cons: none so far
