10 years and still rocking

Pros: - I've got this drive back in 2007 when I built a PC at the time. I've upgraded all my components but I kept this drive. Now it's almost 2018 and it's still rocking. I'm using it as a junk archive since my main boot drive is an SDD

Cons: - None

Good 4 backup

Pros: This drive worked well for me. (I use it for back up via a USB /HDD adapter.)

Cons: *none yet...*

Other Thoughts: I did not pick this drive for performance. I got it because it was cheap, and I didn't need performance.

Cons: none

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10

Pros: ST3160815AS
This Fantastic HDD had been in my family's main desktop computer for over 5 years as the only HDD. The computer was normally left on 24/7. Now I will be using it as the OS drive for my current computer build. This HDD, though a bit small now at 160 GB is always dependable. I have never had any errors with it ever.
Even though It is a SATA 2 (3Gb/s transfer speed), we always had the jumper block on to limit it to 1.5Gb/s unknowingly. That may have contributed to the long lifespan and dependability.

Cons: It can't cook Breakfast for me.

Other Thoughts: I don't know what price we got it for, but back then, it was worth it.

Trash

Pros: None

Cons: Company and the hard drive. Company is complete trash like their products. Purchased this hdd thinking the bad reviews were just bad luck but can't be. Hdd lasted 2 months tried to RMA with Seagate only to be refused. They said I purchased a OEM hdd..... This clearly isn't a OEM hdd. Called newegg they RMA'd and SENT me a OPEN BOX item!!!! Now I get a refund. Save time Buy WD and never Seagate. I'll never buy from this Company again. I hope they go out of business!!!"

Other Thoughts: Should've just bought Western Digital!!!!

Obviously a refurb!!!

Pros: Would have been a good price if it were new!

Cons: Went to Seagate's warranty check and the drive was listed as a component drive and was not under warranty. So much for a three year warranty!!! Power on time...1902 days!!!

Other Thoughts: Could have just ordered the 'refurb' listing for $12 less and possibly had a 90 day warranty!

Classi Mechanical Drive

Pros: Classic hard drive. Perfect for an inexpensive boot drive or where large capacity drives are not needed. It's quiet and cool. Perfect for a budget PC.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Boot drives do not need to be large and even though SSDs are being used for that, there are situations where there is a lot of disk I/O and mechanical drives are the work horses for these jobs. This drive should outlast an SSD due to the # of writes SSDs are limited to. SSDs are becoming better at that and cheaper, but at the present this drive is a better solution, imo. I have always had excellent experience with Seagate and have read some reviews that are concerning, but that is not my experience.

Also since machanical drives do not work as fast as SATA 3, this drive works perfect in the SATA 2 port.

I am using this as a pfSense drive that caches web pages, so there is a lot of disk i/o and this drives works extremely well. so far!! but that is the nature of drives.

Very Disappointed

Pros: NONE!! -- I received a thoroughly used, relabeled drive with 24,065 POH (Power On Hours) of use on it.

I would have given zero eggs if I could have.

Cons: The box label & the drive label have part number ST3160815AS on them. BUT, the MoBo BIOS's (2 different boards) and Seatools for DOS v2.23 reports the drive as ST3160815SV - NOT - ST3160815AS!! -- I have a desktop system NOT a video surveillance system!! -- I need a desktop drive!!

I guess Seagate (or the 3rd party they have rebuilding they're drives) decided to relabel a used PofS drive & return it to Newegg instead of actually fixing it & shipping out a Seagate Certified Repaired HDD as they did in the good ole days.

Apparently Seagate's not the only ones doing it either, I checked out some WD drives, numerous reviewers had the same issue with they're drives as I did with this SchlockGate.

Other Thoughts: I have a Seagate Certified Repaired 80gig SATA-2 HDD with over 18,000 POH (it started @ ZERO NOT 24,065!!) and it's still working perfect. Week ago I picked up a pair of Seagate Certified Repaired 80gig PATA HDD's for a Linux box; they too started with ZERO POH - NOT 24,000!!

I asked the Newegg CSR for a customer courtesy credit to cover the extra $15 cost of a 250GB (Seagate) drive even though I don't need that big a drive, she said no, refund only.

Great - now I have a new system I built for Win-7 (to replace XP box) and NO HDD to put the OS on. Guess I'll have to check Tiger - I DO NOT NEED, NOR WILL I BE FORCED INTO BUYING A 1.21-GIGABYTE DRIVE!!
