1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 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 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.....

1 out of 5 eggsbulk bare buyer b u know the rhyme

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

Pros: no delay in arrival after order. no delay in throwing read write errors. no delay in immediately requesting and receiving refund. no delay in ordering a nonbulk nonbare upgrade.

Cons: patiently waiting retail boxen 4tb. missing the long lost option to buy a Conner hdd. wishing factory QA wasn't an apology but a check for write errors.

Other Thoughts: formatted ok. sunny seasidetools said smart test ok. but wasn't ok. failed simple read write soak testing. u should use actual diagnostic tools on hdd during the perishable full refund window. this experience honed and refocused both my price value point and brand decision processes.

5 out of 5 eggsPurchased 3 of these drives, all functioning well

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

Pros: - High Capacity
- Best value per GB currently

I purchased 3 of these drives for my WHS 2011 storage server running FlexRAID. I used two for parity drives and the third for data. In total, I have 16 drives in the RAID, 2 of which are for parity, with a total of 42 TB of storage capacity.

All three drives passed a surface sector scan without error and were placed into the RAID array. The parity drives see about 2 TB/day in reads and 1 TB/day in writes. I've written about 1 TB to the 3rd drive. I have not had any issues with any of these drives.

Performance is excellent for a 5900 RPM drive. The error scan averaged approximately 170 MB/sec, whereas the 3 TB 7200 RPM drive hit 186 MB/sec. In contrast, this drive runs cooler and has less vibration.

I also wanted to comment on Newegg's new hard drive shipping methods. I stopped buying drives from Newegg a year ago when I received two DOA drives, both poorly packaged. However, Newegg revamped their shipping practices and all drives are now shipped in custom-fitted air bladders that provide excellent protection. I can now happily purchase drives from Newegg, knowing that they will be properly packaged. See here for more information: http://promotions.newegg.com/HDD/14-0788/index.html?icid=238512

I will update this review in a year with the current state of all 3 drives.

Cons: - These drives only come with a 2 year warranty, extended to 3 years if you purchase with a credit card (Visa, MC, AMEX, Discover all offer this benefit). In contrast, the NAS drives come with a 3 year warranty and enterprise/WD Black drives have 5 year warranties. These drives are still an excellent value, but the limited warranty period is something to consider. I don't think the price premium on NAS drives is warranted unless you are using drives for traditional RAID.

5 out of 5 eggsStill working

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

Pros: Been running for 5 months without any issues.

Cons: I cant find any cons

Other Thoughts: Mine works, I supposed I got lucky and got a working one, seems like these seagate hard drives are a real mess. To be honest all the hard drives I bought from newegg are still working, including those 3TB that are atrociously bad, its a luck and packaging.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

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

Pros: Lots of Storage. Very fast for a lower RPM drive

Cons: Just quit working after about a year. No indications that it was bad, just stopped working. Doesn't spin up. Took about 3.7 GB of data with it. Hope my other 2 drives don't just quit working.

Better back up your data or use Raid 5

Other Thoughts: Drive seems like it has a high fail rate. Too bad, because it was great while it worked.
