Cons: I order one of these drives and transferred about 500gb on it. It looks just grate in terms of speed, run cool (at about 32C) and quiet, and has a good warranty.
After about 4 days of usage without any problem at all, I find out about an app from Seagate that test the drive: SeeTool for Windows. I installed, and run it. I was surprised to see that my drive failed one of the tests and got a message that say: “Now is a good time to make sure you have a current backup of your important data. Unfortunately, your Seagate product has failed an important diagnostic test, possibly caused by problem sectors which are difficult to read.”
I returned the drive for a replacement. In about one week I got a new one and this time I just installed and test it. And guess what: I got the same error with a different code, and the same message.
I returned the second one and I asked for a refund.
Thanks to Newegg this repeated process was as smoothly as possible: I did not paid for S&H, and just now I got an email that approved the refund.
Thank you Newegg!
