Seagate SV35.6 ST1000VX000 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

4 out of 5 eggs This is evaluation/comments on a 1TB HDD 03/18/2016

This review is from: Seagate SV35.6 ST1000VX000 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Surveillance Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: NIce capacity and was nice price. I buy HDDs for stock when I need them. Ordered many from NE.
I seem to have good results, generally with Seagate and WD products.

Cons: Received DOA. Tried several boxes with the same results (XP and 7). Symptom was the drive would spin up (upon applying power) then a couple seconds later stop. Obviously, any BIOS would never see the drive. Yes, ordered 2 years ago, kept in stock, then needed to install in new machine. Site web system said no returns; but I later figured out the solution by contacting NE (chat) and then OEM. It took a little while to contact either the seller or OEM. Seller does not appear to have phone support and saw bad reviews on them. I did not know that it appears (to me) that NE is a reseller (closing house) and does not stock some items in a warehouse, but rather buy from outside sources and they ship directly to you (the customer). Probably like Amaz does it? This is now understood and most likely the reason NE has good prices.

OEM replaced it under warranty with equivalent or better. Still wary of NE using UPS (goons). Wish they would use Fed-Ex or USPS who generally are much easier on package handling.

Other Thoughts: I did select a new product originally, I believe. In the future I may pay the extra at the local store and let them handle any warranty issues. The whole process took about 3 months. Partially because of my ignorance on the whole process since this I have not done warranty exchanges until recently. I wish NE had phone support but I figure they do not have the manpower to answer thousands of calls. Most likely why TD almost went out of business. I guess NE is doing the best they can. This was a special case because I was dealing with 2 separate orders, this one I got about 2 years ago and a recent 2nd drive (DOA) that was a 750 GB one to try out because of this one (1TB) not working. I'm glad OEM extended my warranty (3-year) when I sent in the proof of purchase. TIP: Keep your shipping box with the labels for this reason.

Other Thoughts: Also noticed the original item seem to be “refurbished” only based on observations of the case outside. Almost looks like they buffed it to look “new”. I did select a new product originally, I believe. In the future I may pay the extra at the local store and let them handle any warranty issues. The whole process took about 3 months.
