1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to earlier review

Pros: Great specs

Cons: We never got it to work properly in our workstation.

Other Thoughts: We just wanted to give a quick update to our earlier review....

In the end, Seagate replaced our drives with a newer model (6 months later) and everything worked out of-the-box. Although we are not pleased on how much effort it took us to get a working drive set, but we would like to extend kudos to Seagate tech support for pulling out all the stops to satisfy us.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for RAID

Pros: I put 6 of these in a PowerEdge 2950 with a PERC 5/i controller. They work just fine.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: These are not intended to be super fast drives, but I've been happy with their (perceived, not measured) performance.

5 out of 5 eggsNearline SAS alternative to Enterprise SATA

Pros: SAS! Nearline SAS for the price of enterprise SATA. These are not full-blown server drives but it's a definite step up from the already higher-quality enterprise SATA. A good way to get a higher quality economical drive.

Cons: None that I've noted.

Other Thoughts: These drives let you buy reasonable SAS hardware for your fancy RAID controller. You don't want to use retail office-PC drives for pro storage. For use with RAID controllers you want drives that quickly return error codes upstream, rather than, say, an office drive that might just try to read the sector forever. Going SAS puts you in the pro level. These nearline-SAS drives are an entry-level excellent compromise on speed, power, and quality. And did I mention they are SAS?! Yay!

1 out of 5 eggsUnexplained design flaw??

Pros: Great specs on paper

Cons: Cannot get a working pair of drives

Other Thoughts: We purchased a pair of these drives to set-up a RAID 1 array in a workstation. We had nothing but problems.

The first pair would run some type of background process for hours every so often even when the drives were idle (no read/writes). It would make noise and heat up the case. Much hotter than some SAS 15K drives running along side these. A reboot seemed to always trigger this background process.

Seagate tech replaced them with another set. Those were DOA.

Seagate tech replaced them with another set. These had exactly the same design flaw as the first. We confirmed the problems in another workstation and documented the issues. (Runs hot and noisy for 6 hours after a reboot.)

As instructed, we set this latest pair back to the Seagate labs for testing. They said that one drive failed their internal tests and the other one passed. They have no comment on the test results that we sent over.

We have asked Seagate to replace these parts with with ones that do not have this design flaw or to refund our money. We are not hopeful.

We have dozens of hard drive that do not exhibit this weird behavior including other Seagate drives. We have worked with both the chassis and motherboard manufacturers to confirm that the problem is isolated to the hard drive. We have confirmed that LSI lists this hard drive as compatible with the controllers.

The problems are compounded in that we are assigned a new contact at Seagate upon every phone call. They tell us that there is no means to stick with one person, so we have to repeat the detail with every call. The other challenge is that they are not setup to have a back and forth via email. We fill out their web form and they respond a few days later with a 'noreply' email address. This situation forces us to call in for support with long hold times during the holiday season.

Hopefully, you will have better luck.

5 out of 5 eggsraid is MANDATORY

Pros: These are super fast, and super fast ( that's what we want, anyway !)

Cons: I bought 8 and hopefully they werein raid 10 so when one of those failed, it wasn't a problem; but the expirence with Seagate was excellent! For 10 box you have a brand new disk at the office in 1 day and you have the return label for shipping; really not bad !

Other Thoughts: Raid and a good controller...please protect yourself !
