Toshiba OCZ TR150 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Could not clone Windows 7 onto this drive - BSOD after Windows logo. 03/17/2016

This review is from: Toshiba OCZ TR150 2.5" 480GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TRN150-25SAT3-480G

Pros: Newegg Premier has free return shipping on DOA items.

Cons: Cloned my old SSD to a WD green drive with no problems. Cloned my old SSD onto this new OCZ Trion with no errors. But the drive would BSOD a few seconds after the Windows logo. Sending back for a refund.

Other Thoughts: OCZ tells you not to return the drive to the retailer. This is because they want you to RMA it and miss your 30 day refund window with Newegg and enter into endless RMAs with this drive while never getting your money back. If you have any issues with this drive, return for refund immediately and get your money back.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

2 out of 5 eggs Large datacenters have rated this specific model as one of the most-failed drives-BUY THE 4TB INSTEAD 02/17/2016

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works well for about a year.

SMART data warns of impending doom, so watch it closely and take out of service as soon as any errors pop up.

Seagate's RMA turnaround was about 2 weeks.

Cons: Had to RMA after a year, drive just failed and would only show up as 20GB total.

Other Thoughts: Do the research on this particular model. Large datacenters found this to be the highest failed drive, this 3TB model. Go with the 4TB model. I am stuck with 3 of these drives that I bought last year, and now that the data is coming in, I see I am not the only one stuck with this drive. The replacement I got is the same model, so I know I'll have more problems again.

This drive will be around for a long time, I mean Seagate will be selling it at the 3TB sweet spot, even though they know it has a sever design flaw.

Because of this failure rate I have gone to a RAID5 array with my 3 drives and hopefully that will work.

**If Seagate is reading this and wants to respond, I will trade the 3TB model for any other 3TB model you have. That would be the responsible thing for Seagate to do as you know what the return and failure rate is on these. 10% failure per year is not acceptable. The fact that 30% of these will fail in 3 years is unacceptable. **
