5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Windows 2003/WHS v1

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: While an AF drive, the SmartAlign firmware did work just fine installed out of the box in a 512K sector based Windows Home Server V1 HP EX490 (which is really just Windows 2003 Server R2 under the covers). I bought four of these, three were made in China, one in Thailand. None of them had any bad sectors and all of them were plug and play.

Cons: The SmartAlign firmware was not compatible with Paragon Alignment Tool 4. So you cannot even try to manually improve the sector alignment to 4K. This means living with some performance degradation due to firmware inefficiencies.

Other Thoughts: The retail box has printed on the side that it includes a Seatools CD-ROM. But none of them included this. Memo to Seagate: update your printing text for the box.

1 out of 5 eggsBad drive - failed immediately

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: None

Cons: Mounted the drive and couldn't even format it. It had a bad directory and listed itself as a 4TB drive instead of 2TB. Firmware couldn't be updated either.

Other Thoughts: Every sata HD brand has issues. In my personal experience, Seagate has the most. I'm going back to WD Black.

2 out of 5 eggsDied too quickly

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: Did its job as a hard drive while it was alive.

Cons: Died too quickly.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this hard drive in November of 2012 and it was dead in July of 2014. It was fine while it lasted with no issues when it came to speed or performance, but that's simply too short for me to recommend this product to anybody.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it lasted

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: Very fast drive. Almost no vibration. Got it for $100

Cons: Died in less than 2 years. Ran 3 Hard drive programs and they all report hard drive bad. It also started making clicking noise since last 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: I use this drive to store my media for my HTPC and you can only imagine what happends when your media drive failed :(

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: None

Cons: Installed and the drive was not recognized. Turned my computer off. Swapped the SATA and power cable my storage drive was plugged into to this new hard drive. Drive still not present. Extremely disappointing.

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: None!

Cons: Bought this drive in early October. It sat on a shelf until Monday. Installed it and it DOA. Because it was beyond 30 days Newegg won't warranty it. I have to go through Seagate to try to get a replacement. What a Pain!

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money!

Pros: Lots of storage while it lasted.

1 out of 5 eggsTango Down (2 of 3 died within 18 months)

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: Drives hold data until they fail (is this called damning by faint praise?).
Speed consistent with what you would expect out of a 7200 RPM drive.
Relatively painless RMA process.

Cons: Reliability is very poor.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 3 of these to put into a home server build. The 3 drives were running in a Raid 5 array since June of 2013. My first drive died at the end of July 2014. The second drive died last night (Dec 2014). Let's be honest, you buy these for reliability. A spinning disk should get you several years before tanking. I understand infant mortality is a thing. You can have drives bite the dust early, but that number should be low (<5%). Two drives down within 18 months is extremely disappointing.

Do yourself a favor and buy a better drive if you're running in any device that keeps an active array. The drives were listed as being great for NAS use. This is not the case. Buy drives based on warranty length and reviews. The 2 year warranty on these should have been a red flag, but I ignored it. As a result, I keep a cold spare in my desk ready to replace failed drives as soon as possible. Once I'm out of the 2 year period and can no longer RMA failed drives, I'll start to replace with more prosumer level equipment.

3 out of 5 eggsPlan to replace it after a year

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Retail kit

Pros: Fast

Cons: Purchased on 10/13/2013 for a new system build, started getting check disk errors at the start of December 2014. Drive hasn't failed yet, but I'm planning on replacing it now. Glad I'm using it as a file storage for Steam and Media files, my OS is on a WD SSD.

Other Thoughts: I hate to sound like a broken record, but if you want a drive to last, spend extra money to buy high-quality materials. These drives seem to be built to last about a year in a home-use system built for gaming. Keep that in mind while buying.
