4 out of 5 eggsPurchased as a DVR replacement HD

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works fine in the Bell 9400 series PVR. Quiet and runs cool.

Cons: Seagate reliability may be an issue. Haven't had much luck with them in the past but WD doesn't make a proper compatible DVR HD for the Bell units...we'll see....
This is not a con...but for all the other reviews that state this drive is slow and not as fast as 7200rpm or SSD...YA Think!!! This is a DVR video streaming/recording HD and that's all it's made for...not at all intended for a desktop....there...got that out of my system :)

Other Thoughts: Bell will not do much for customers suffering with failing drives in the 9400 series other than offer up a refurb unit for a couple of hundred dollars...so replacing the HD myself was a cheaper option. This HD works fine and brought the PVR function back to life. The PVR formats the unit automatically on startup and if you don't receive a warning regarding recording performance, then all is good. You can always format the drive manually using the procedure with the Bell remote.

4 out of 5 eggsBack Up Drive

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Well priced for a 1TB internal OEM HD. I know that this is made for DVRs, however, it's pretty good solution if you're using it for strictly back up storage. Runs quite and no issues with cooling.

Cons: Probably not a good idea to use a boot drive on a PC at only 5200 RPM.

4 out of 5 eggsVideo Drive Period.

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -The Drive was shipped OEM inside a pillow bag.
-Once I added the drive to my raid controller card, I was able to go to disk management and add the drive to windows where it was recognized right away. Formatted in seconds.
-1TB is a good size, but for its usage Video capture I'm thinking most consumers would prefer to have something a bit larger or have multiples of these drives.
-I used crystal Mark to test and showed the following results. Comparatively speaking from other drives I have tested this drive slightly under performs.

READ WRITE
Seq 219.2 151.8
512K 59.98 34.22
4K 0.914 1.517
4K QD32 0.682 1.506

-Low power consumption. For what this drive is designed for Low power consumption is a plus.
-Price. I think this drive is priced right for high capacity video streaming storage.
-Quite.

Cons: Everything works as intended on this drive.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't purchase this drive if your looking for anything other than storage. I have never had a bad seagate drive and as always Newegg is the best.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Drive - you will not regret it

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Worked right out of the box.
Very quiet drive, I had to use a stethoscope to hear it (!)
Runs warm, not burning hot like some drives
Low power consumption, great for media server

I ran 20 video streams at once, 1080p with absolutely no indication that the drive was stressed. Using my drive benchmark utilities I was consistently seeing:

Read speeds 175 mbs
Write speed – 174 mbs

It's nice when a product does what it's supposed to, no issues and no drama!

Cons: The only 'con' I can think of is that it's a 3 gig/s drive not 6 -- but who cares, it gets the job done.

Other Thoughts: Seagate has been around for a long time. All drive manufacturers have issues now and again, but in this case I think they nailed it. For the intended purpose, at this price point you cannot go wrong. I'm not easily impressed, and this drive impressed me.

4 out of 5 eggsConsistent performance from 0GB to 1000GB!

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: The thing that strikes me immediately about this drive is it's consistency.

Normally when you have a drive, its speeds are all over the place. At the beginning of the drive, it writes at say 160MB/sec. By the end of the drive, that's often down to 55MB/sec. So it's really hard to do capacity planning with a drive like that because it literally performs worse the more you fill it up.

Not so with the video drives. With this drive, it writes at ~75.5MB/sec, whether it has 0GB used to 1000GB used. That makes it super easy to do some math and figure out how many video cameras (or DVR streams or whatever) you can write to this drive at once! For example, if each stream takes 4MB/sec (32mbit), then you could write approximately 17 of them at once to the drive! (I'm assuming a little bit of constant overhead.) Never before has capacity planning been so easy!

Noise is very low, thanks to this unit spinning at approximately 5900 rpm. Heat is also well controlled; if necessary this unit could easily be stuffed inside an unvented external USB case and run all day without overheating.

Cons: Though consistent, in absolute terms this drive is outperformed by other drives when under 50% used. Seagate is clearly trading front end for back end speed (i.e. trading "speed when 0% used" for "speed when 90% used"). That's good for some uses, not desirable for others.

Other Thoughts: A nice little drive all in all. I thought the purple badging was just going to be some marketing gimmick, yet the test results show actual measurable results!

As it's just a regular SATA drive as far as the computer is concerned, works well with any operating system. (Windows, linux, MacOS, etc.)

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable video storage drive

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Good price
Designed for 24x7 operation and storage of video content, making it a good solution for upgrading a DVR’s hard drive, streaming HD content over the network, or recording security camera footage.
Spindle speed of 5900 RPM is more than enough for these use cases, using 5900 RPM instead of 7200 RPM allows the drive to consume less power, run cooler, and make less noise than a 7.2k RPM drive. The drive is designed to operate at temperatures up to 75 C. which is extremely high, which makes sense, set top boxes / DVR’s, tend to have little to no active cooling for all of its components, designing a drive to run at these temperatures is key for this market.
Drive is thinner (height) that most 3.5” hard drives assisting in installation in tight places.
3 year warranty (which was standard pre Tsunami a few years ago), while this may be short for some it is actually rather reasonable, I have seen many drives with a 1 or 2 year warranty lately, short of enterprise drives there are very few consumer drives with a 5 year warranty, and those demand a price premium.

Cons: Not really any cons with this, worked right out of the box as expected.

Other Thoughts: This is a SATA 6Gb’s drive, this has become standard for almost all hard drives. However the drive being SATA 6Gb’s doesn’t actually make any difference. Here are some results from the 1TB model for us techy’s:
Max read / write, 181MB/s, 177MB/s
Minimum read / write: 78.9MB/s, 77.1MB/s
Average read / write: 143.2MB/s, 139.0MB/s
With an access time of about 15ms
Drive does not come with cables, documentation, but that is to be expected from an OEM drive however this drive is not listed as OEM, it is possible that Eggxpert reviewers got the drive without packaging but unlikely. If you are using this to replace a DVR’s hard drive than you can use the existing cabling, or if used in a PC, your motherboard comes with SATA cables. The drive also ships unformatted, so you will have to format it yourself (really easy) and I imagine a DVR would format it itself.
If you are looking for a drive for your PC’s operating system you should look elsewhere to 7200 RPM drives.

4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive DVR drive

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: • Inexpensive for a video streaming drive
• Read and write speeds very reasonable and is more than adequate to serve as a DVR drive
• Quite, can barely hear it.
• Runs nice and cool, power efficient
• Light in weight and thinner than most terabyte drives, conserving resources in manufacturing process, contains 50% recycled materials and contains materials that are 70% recyclable

Cons: • Only rated at 3GB/s drive, a bit disappointed as almost all modern drives make use of SATA III’s higher transfer capacity ie 6 GB/s
• 5900 rpm which is on the low side as most drives are 7200 rpm

Other Thoughts: The brown Newegg box arrived promptly as always via UPS. The drive came OEM in other words it came bubble wrapped in a anti-static bag instead of a retail box, so no details or info on the drive, not a con as most drives these days come OEM style unless you buy it at a brick and mortar retail outlet, then you pay at least 30% more.
After opening the anti-static bag you will notice the Seagate logo, serial number and SKU number.
I noticed the drive is about 25% thinner and lighter as my WD 2 TB HDD, this is in line with using less material creating a “greener” drive, les impact on the environment, always a good thing in my opinion.
I popped the drive into my file server's hot swap bay as I don’t have a DVR other than TIVO which does not allow you to change HDD’s, the PC has a Z77 motherboard with plenty of SATA ports, this drive was connected via SATA III but seeing it is only a 3GB/sec drive it would not make full use of the SATA III bandwidth. The drive did not come pre-formatted so after a quick NTFS format I ended up with 931.51 GB of free space.
I ran ATTO disk benchmark and the following is the average result of 5 runs:
Read speed – 177.7 mb/s
Write speed – 175 .1 mb/s
(Transfer size 0.5-8192kb, total length – 256 mb)
Not bad for a mechanical drive that spins at only 5900 rpm, certainly good enough to stream your favorite videos from via your HTPC.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive for streaming over the network

This review is from: Seagate Video ST1000VM002 1TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: - Very Quiet Operation

- Price per GB makes this drive really cheap and hard to compare to

- 3 year warranty

- Designed to have 16 simultaneous streams of HD content
- 64 MB Cache

- Can be used for entry level or home surveillance system storage solution

- Designed for a "always on" system

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I put this hard drive into my home file server for benchmarking. Here's the specs:

OS Used: Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit SP1
Tested with: CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3 x64

5 Tests were completed using 1000MB option.

Sequential Read: 187.1 MB/s
Sequential Write: 182.6 MB/s
512K Read: 34.78 MB/s
512K Write: 89.89 MB/s
4K Read: 0.490 MB/s
4K Write: 1.112 MB/s
4K QD32 Read: .503 MB/s
4K QD32 Write: 1.104 MB/s

I transferred 150 GB of video data locally and averaged 121 MB/s. I was pretty impressed with this speed. I think the data transfer ended up only taking 11 minutes to complete.

Using the drive as a streaming storage solution works great. My wife and I stream media to our living room television and to our bedroom as well as our children's bedroom. I was originally doing so with a NAS hard drive. Although it works most of the time, I have had issues with "hiccups" during playback if multiple streams are going on at the same time. This hard drive looks to have solved that issues. I had video streams playing back on 7 difference devices at the same time with no lag or buffering "hiccups".


My initial intent for this drive was to use it for streaming media to our devices in our home. However, I do have multiple IP cameras set up in the house and may end up using this to store captured video. I have been doing so to my NAS hard drive and know that is not what the hard drive was truly intended for. I will update this review if I decide to use it for saving captured video.

This drive was packaged as an OEM drive, therefore, no cables or factory packaging were included.
