Very unprofessional and dishonest people.

Pros: Product was shipped fast

Cons: Return took 2+ months. They ignored my emails. I had to call and check on progress on weekly basis. Very unprofessional and dishonest people.

Okay Hard Drive

Pros: Excellent Hard Drive, I've had absolutely no problem with this, and I've had it for over six months now. I've ran both Windows Vista and Windows 7 (both 64-bit Pro) and they've ran perfectly.

UPDATE: This HDD has been giving a 'failure' warning for years now, so I don't keep sensitive information on it. It's still working fine, though.

Cons: 'Failure' warning.

Horrible!

Pros: It worked for few years...

Cons: Failed SMART and then promptly died. This is already a 2nd or a 3rd Seagate hard drive that fails on me!
Seagate says it's out of warranty and wont repair it.
They know hard drive will fail after 1-2 years that's why the warranty is so limited.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy Seagate product.
Seagate warranty is bad.
Bad quality.

3rd one in 4 years. No better than the first time.

Pros: Runs fast and smooth until:

Cons: The bad sectors flow in like explosive diarrhea.
No joke; my dad bought one packaged as an external hard drive in 2012, lasted a year; 10 bad sectors.
Received a second one as a hand off from a friend who didn't need his; bad sectors all over the volume in 5 months.
Got my third one in a used computer I bought (great computerbtw), and it already had 10 bad sectors.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favour, get a WD Caviar Blue or at the very least go for a 7200.14. I have two of each and they've been running smooth for 3+ years!

Died

Pros: Bought a few years ago, ran great. Pretty quiet, when it was working it was working great.

Cons: Failed after four years. Last week had a bad sector, then more, this week bios cant find it.

Other Thoughts: Wouldnt recommend. Ive got much older drives from competitors that are still running. At the time the price seemed right, in hindsight its not quite that black and white.

good hard drive for good price....

Pros: i was initially impressed with this drive.

good speed.
good capacity.
good price, competetive with WD's offerings at the time, which is the only other brand of desktop hard drive i ever purchase.

HDD tune
128.4MB/sec maximum
102.1MB/sec average
63.0MB/sec minimum
15.3MS average access time
144MB/sec burst transfer rate

but read on.

Cons: runs hot. since this drive had my OS installed on it, i gave it the best ventilated prime real estate in my case.
always seemed warm.

im writing this review after about 18 months of ownership. A few weeks ago the drive failed, too many bad sectors, i was able to recover much of my important data from the drive before ultimate failure to even boot. I have now completed the RMA process, Seagate sent me a refurbished unit of the exact same hard drive. Seagates warantees are only 3 years, and i had to spend $10 on packaging and 10$ on shipping that meets their rediculous requirements. (newegg does not ship NEW hard drives to these requirements, and newegg is almost never responsible for damage in transit)

secondly, the warantee does not start for another 3 years, rather it just continues for the remaining duration of the orriginal warantee.

Other Thoughts: in conclusion. I now have a drive which has built up a reputation as being less than reliable and with a shorter warantee, and i find myself strugling over wether to put my OS back on this hard drive, and risk that i may have yet another disk failure in my near future.

Seagate is usually very good as making high capacity drives for cheap, though usually they are nosier than WD's counterparts. As long as you avoid the couple of "bad" models, Seagate drives remain a decent choice.

I am however, dissatisfied with the reliability of this hardware, and the manufacturers commitment to their product. I will avoid their "budget" hard drives in the future.

(after looking around online, it seems these drives do have a high failure rate in the 1-2 year range, i am not alone)

Honorable

Pros: I was initially displeased with the level of service I was receiving (as stated in my review below); however, I have exchanged several correspondence with EOL Tech and in the end they not only accommodated me, they exceeded my expectations.

Cons: none.

Going on 5 years now.

Pros: 43,000 power-on hours.. basically means this drive has been running almost non-stop since I got it.

Impressive reliability, however my speeds are just now starting to drop off so I'm looking to finally retire it.

This drive was from the golden age of seagate and hard drive reliability.

Cons: None, thanks for all the rotations ;)

Other Thoughts: Seriously guys.. people here giving 1 egg and complaining because their drive lasted FOUR+ YEARS? That's all you should expect, how silly.
