1 out of 5 eggs2 dead drives - waste of money

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: none

Cons: I bought two additional Seagate 4TB drives to add to my NAS because I had two others. The model numbers weren't exactly the same but I figured these would be fine and they don't have to match. Unfortunately they were never detected properly by the NAS and I figured it was an issue with the NAS. A few months after moving/job change and I try again to find that these two drives will not even show up in Disk Mgmt directly connected to my system. Two in a row? I'm not buying these anymore.

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts? Seagate sucks.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value for Medium Performance

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: -Good value.
-Quiet.
-Relatively cool.

Cons: -Slow rotational speed gives weaker performance.

Other Thoughts: I bought this drive principally for archiving video projects for my YouTube channel. It's a very good value in the 4TB size range. It's not 7,200RPM and it's performance is so-so but it's still faster than a Western Digital Green series and slightly cheaper to boot. I would not recommend this for a PC where fast loading times are important, such as a gaming PC. If you need that use and can't afford an SSD, the Western Digital Black is still the best performance bang for buck in rotating drives in my opinion. However, for archival use or data that doesn't require rapid access times, this does the job well.

Seagate has a reputation for being the least reliable drive manufacturer and most negative reviews of their products cite this as the reason. I have a Western Digital Black as my gaming drive but I have three archival drives, all of which are Seagate and they've all been rock solid, largely running 24 hours a day for weeks or months at a time. That's only my personal experience but I've used a lot of hard drives in my day and have been happy with these so far. Good value for a mid-grade performance drive and worth buying if that's your use case.

Cons: I ordered a 4TB HDD and got half that..

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I bought 6 of these hard drives and using them for 3 years now in the 2 servers I have. They do make noise after a year but very rare. I never had mine failed on me.

I use Linux and when I get these hard drives I do a non destructive lower level format. This process takes 5 days per hard drive in SATA III connection. If I do not do this lower level format then around 50gb to 120gb or 1tb the hard drive fails to write and you hear the head keep moving back and forth which is very bad and can physically damage you drive forever.

My guess is these drives are mass produced and it cost a lot to leave them on the factory to do a 5 days lower level format so they let the end user do it.

Cons: 5 to 6 days of lower level format which means your computer have to be on uninterrupted and your hard drive have to be cooled which your case should already provide. If your computer reboots in the process then another 5 days are lost.

Other Thoughts: I egg off for the noise I really hear from time to time. I use these drives for: web services, picture storage, movie streaming to my local roku, and backup. 3 of them in primary server and the other 3 on secondary server doing network mirror of primary server so if I loose a hard drive or a computer I can continue my work.

4 out of 5 eggsDrive

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This drive has very nice amount of storage. Very basic packing, but that is fine by me since I am wanting just the actual part.

Cons: Did not realize the drive was only a 5400 RPM drive. If I had known that, I would have bought 2 3-TB 7200RPM drives. However the read/write seems to do great for Virtual Machine storage.

4 out of 5 eggswork well if you are lucky

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Silent, fairly speedy, no dead sectors, no issues, after you get good units. Considered that I had to replace one out of two, the odds of getting good drives are not very good

Cons: Ordered two units. One failed out of the box (no spin) and was replaced by Newegg with no issues (except for shipping costs for the defective unit). Replacement was OK, working in a WJS2011 for over one year with no issues.

Other Thoughts: 50% failure rate for brand new units is not acceptable, but reading through the reviews, it looks like it is the new norm, not an exception. Having to pay to return defective out of the box parts is a hassle I could do without. May want to do a stress test as soon as you get the units, to weed out the early failurs while you are under newegg's warranty.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Hard to think of any when it arrives DOA

Cons: Dead on arrival.

Other Thoughts: Every now and then I'll get suckered into buying a Seagate Drive. While I know all drives are subject to occasional failures my experience with Seagate has been disappointing often enough that I'm taking the time to ding them with this review. When I powered up this drive, I immediately heard that scraping/grinding noise that tells you you're in trouble. Disk Management couldn't format the drive because of an I/O error so I packed it up and RMA'd it. No more Seagate for me... at least for a while.

1 out of 5 eggsNot even a year's use out of it.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: When Drives worked, were not as chatty as I'd thought they'd be, running 24/7.
When Drives worked, drives offered plenty of storage for the price.

Cons: Drives didn't even last a year! I bought two of these last year on Black Friday through the NEwegg.com iPad app, scoring them for $139 each.
They are NOT worth the money I paid for them. When they began to fail,
first, the drives would continually unmount, and then start throwing data into a
"Lost+Found" folder., which you could usually drag back out and put back in
it's proper place. But when they fully failed, each drive lost over 20GB of data that is unrecoverable using software data recovery programs, including Seagate's own Data Recovery software.

I am now sending these off for RMA today, but I'm VERY leery of using the replacements, because I got so badly burned on these two drives. In comparison, I ended up scavenging the data off of these and put that onto
two WD Green 4TB drives, and so far they have been rock solid ( and much quieter)

Other Thoughts: It's very telling that Seagate is now offering Data Recovery software for their drives, as well as only offering only two year warranties on larger than 3TB drives. Buyer beware.....
