Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Seagate Quality has really gone down 03/04/2015

This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: We own a computer repair shop.
We will no longer Seagate hard drives to our clients.
The failure rate on Seagate 1.5TB, 2TB and ESPECIALLY their 3TB drives is so bad it's amazing they can sell such a terrible product.

Not sure what's going on at Seagate, but it did not used to be this way pre-2011 from my recollection, and I've been in this business a long time.

WD = solid drives.

HGST - Extremely low fail rates, the best we believe in terms of quality at this time.

Just RMA'ed one of these exact 2TB models and guess what... the recertified drive wouldn't even spin out of the box. So many clients have lost data from failing Seagate drives and unfortunately Apple uses them in their Time Capsules.


I don't write many reviews but the failure rate is so astounding I needed to warn others.

The amount of failures we see is overwhelmingly young, 1-2 year old Seagates including this model.

Cons: Extraordinarily high failure rate

Rosewill RV350 350W ATX 1.3     Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Lasted a few months 01/11/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RV350 350W ATX 1.3 Power Supply

Pros: Cheap, feels solid compared to other cheap PSUs

Cons: 3 of the 5 we bought failed in basic PC builds within 6 months, including one that started smoking and melting today in a customer's PC

Other Thoughts: Quality control?

Antec NEW SOLUTION SERIES VSK-3000 Black SGCC steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: We regularly order many cases in the $30 range for low to mid-range builds. The metal feels solid, the power button feels solid, much more so than most cases at this price point.

Cons: No USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: If you need something basic for office/client builds, here you go.
