2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked well for awhile.

Cons: Lasted 2 and a half years then started having problems. Bad sectors and all that. I just figured that it would have lasted a lot longer than it did considering it did not get heavy usage.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive all around

Pros: Got this drive to use for backups in my USB 3.0 external enclosure. It seems to fit the bill perfectly. It is fast (get around 70-75MB/s over USB 3.0) It runs nice and cool and I can barely hear it running. It replaced a 750GB Seagate which was louder, ran hot inside the case, and started having bad sectors.

Cons: None as of yet.

5 out of 5 eggsPre-Seagate Drive

Pros: *Decent storage space
*Quiet
*Speed is on par with other mechanical drives.

Cons: *A bit smaller than i would have preferred for this quality of drive.
No longer in production due to Seagate buying them out and eliminating them.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive before Seagate purchased Samsungs HDD division. It works pretty well so far, tho i dont know how well the warranty will hold up if anything happens. I suspect i would get back a lower quality Seagate drive. Im now looking around for a good 3-4 TB drive, and im not sure i can trust Seagates given all their known failures.

This drive itself is a good drive and im glad i got it before it got removed from the market.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent drives

Pros: using in RAID 1 configuration without issue. Quiet, low heat drives. Owned for 9 months, no issues so far. Great performance, use these in a video editing workstation. Got these for $90 each back then, super bargain.

Cons: none at this time.

Other Thoughts: Drive prices have more than doubled due to floods in Thailand over the summer. All major manufacturers were impacted, as well as their sub-assembly providers. Most of the manufacturers have recovered their manufacturing capability, and stock is re-populating the distribution channels. However it appears that consumer pricing has not leveled out yet and it may be some time before that happens. I believe the manufacturers will use this excuse for months to come to keep drive prices unreasonably high....shame on them.

One other note, I have been a Samsung bigot for some time, and now that they are owned by Seagate, I am feeling a bit squeamish.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None at this time

Cons: Was having other system problems and when finally got to where I can run my system. Found out that hard drive had bad cluster.

Other Thoughts: Since order was over 30 days old, was able to get replacement drive from manufacture. So even if it was more time consuming. It was worth the time to ensure that I got replacement.

3 out of 5 eggsToo many bad blocks

Pros: Drive is pretty fast.
Was nice while it lasted.

Cons: After 1 1/2 days of use, it was throwing SMART errors, and it was getting lots of bad blocks.
This is unacceptable for a new product.

This can happen to all drives though, hence the average rating.

Other Thoughts: Have no choice but to RMA this drive, it really isn't acceptable to be getting bad blocks so soon, and with so little use.

Newegg's packaging of the drive is much better than it was in the past, but it still can be improved by using the paper wadding on both sides of the box, not just the top.

5 out of 5 eggsLook ma!.... It's a "spair"!!

Pros: It's very large.

Cons: It's a 3 gig port.

Other Thoughts: I kindof messed up on this one. I purchased it for my new machine, and somehow "missed" the fact that it's a 3 gig interface instead of the new 6 gig. I could have returned it since it was never opened, but for the cost of the shipping and because it was my fault, I decided just to keep it as a "spare" just in case. Could come in very handy in a crisis situation anyway. So I can't really report on it's performance, I can only report on my.... ummm.. lack of performance.
