Seagate has long been both an innovator and a crowd-pleaser in terms of data storage technology. The new ST31500341AS is the latest in a long line of Barracuda drives, with a storage and speed seldom seen. Designed with noise- suppression engineering and state-of-the-art speed and power this 1.5 TB powerhouse offers a brilliant combination of technology and low cost of ownership. Idling at only eight watts, this drive delivers up to 43% power savings over earlier generations without sacrificing performance.

Worked well while it lasted

Pros: Lots of storage on the cheap

Cons: Be careful to pay close attention to the SMART reports for this drive. Automate a weekly report or something so you aren't caught with your pants down.

Other Thoughts: After 7 years and 61,541 operating hours, the drive finally gave up the ghost. It had been sitting in an external enclosure for its entire life (with a fan) and served me well as a backup/random data holder. It started to give the click of death about 2 weeks ago so I started moving files off of it and am very glad I did. It finally went kaput tonight and will be retired ASAP. I'm giving it 4 stars because in all honesty this thing was a workhorse. It's always a stressful experience to see a drive die and I've had some last longer, but I can't ask for too much more here.

Garbage

Pros: None, when you lose all your data

Cons: Everything about it. Firmware was defective in 2009, purchased in 2011...no notice to update from either seagate or New Egg.
Years pass and the drive dies a quick death with no further indication.

Good for its time, but some abnormal clicking 5 years later

Pros: Large cache at the time for a consumer drive back in 2010, decent read/write speeds, never had corrupt files that I know of.

Cons: After 5 years, it started making a clicking noise on rare occasions perhaps as if it were waking up. I had a hard time getting it to act properly as slave to another drive unless I plugged it into my fastest SATA port, but there's a slight chance I could've messed up the Windows install in a way that it messed with the drive's primary partition.

Other Thoughts: I recommend getting a newer model with more cache and faster SATA, and there should be at least one that is cheaper than this drive. It was good while it lasted, and I trust it enough to act as a secondary off site backup for my files.

8 Years!

Pros: Lasted 8 years and still going after 43419 running hours

Cons: Starting to fail, I think

Other Thoughts: I've had this drive since November 2008 and it ran 24/7 in my server for a while, then became my Steam drive in my gaming PC. This week it started making the occasional re-sync clicking and locking up my PC. It's not dead yet, but it seems like it's starting its death spin so I bought a replacement. Still though, for a drive that was widely criticized upon its release for high failure rates and short lifespans, getting 8 solid years of performance from it and a graceful failure where I was able to back it up to a new drive is nothing to be upset at. Crystal Disk Info shows 1504 power on counts and 43419 power on hours on this drive with 45 reallocated sectors. I noticed that a few reallocated sectors showed up very early in this drive's life, but have not affected it at all throughout the many years I've used it, even as it's been formatted several times and moved between PCs and external enclosures. I'm formatting it now to try giving it a new life and seeing if it's still got a bit of life left, but I know the end is probably near if it's clicking. I really would like to see it hit the double digit years though, as I have nothing but praise for this drive.

Lasted 4 years

Pros: I bought to install in a computer for a friend, and I just bought another one last week for myself. You can't beat it for the price. It's very quiet and pretty fast.

Cons: The one year warranty totally sucks. I knew that was the case when I bought it though. it's too early to talk about reliability, but it's always a bit of a crapshoot with hard drives.

Other Thoughts: UPDATE: Lasted 4 years as an OS drive running 24/7 before it started developing bad sectors. Not great, but not terrible in terms of longevity.
