so far, so good (so far so bad)

Pros: - good capacity to cost ratio
- very quick over USB 3 ... 80-100 mB/s transfer speeds from internal drives to this drive

Cons: - it uses what appears to be a proprietary connector for the USB. Minus an egg.
- I can now tell you that long-term reliability is an oxymoron. Mine died after like 2 years.

Other Thoughts: - I haven't had it very long so I can't tell you about its long-term reliability
- It's a Seagate, so I'm a little nervous.
- Seriously, though... 3tb makes this a great deal

lasted less than 3 years ...

Pros: - lots of space for the money
- reasonably fast

Cons: - died in less than 3 years
- poor warranty (I was shocked that the drive was already out of warranty, what happened to 5 years?)

Other Thoughts: - I believe that this generation of products were heavily affected by manufacturing issues (fires, floods, etc.) in the far east around the time I purchased, so I cannot recommend the 3TB models just in case, however it appears that newer models are more reliable and so I will try again with a 5TB or larger unit as Seagate continue to be price / performance leaders
- very disappointed that Seagate no longer backs their drives for 5 years

Lasted just longer than the warranty period.

Pros: Lots of storage, decent speed

Cons: Poor reliability

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this or other seagate products. I have the worst luck with them.

Cons: None

Unacceptable

Pros: It was easy to set up with the help of gparted. Inocious black box that houses the drive is neither appealing or detracting from it's overall visual aesthetics.

Cons: It performed very well for the first year and a half of intermittent use, then the errors began.. I've had too many random errors to count .Both reading and writing regardless of file size. I feel that it didn't perform as well as other Seagate drives I've used over the years..

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend this product

Won't buy another Seagate drive again until I've seen significant improvements

Pros: Served its purpose at the time (I had a limited budget and needed a good amount of disk space).

Cons: The drive worked for 2 years, 10 months (almost hit the 3 year mark) before CrystalDiskInfo threw a "Caution" Health Status. The issues it reported are in regards to Current Pending Sector Count and Uncorrectable Sector Count. Based on past experience, once you start having these types of issues with a hard drive, death of the drive is imminent.

Seagate's warranty period leaves a lot to be desired (1 year for this drive). I guess that was to be expected given the fact that at the time I was looking for a budget purchase...but I regret that decision and I'll be purchasing Western Digital from now on given their 5-year warranty on WD Black drives. You get what you pay for with Seagate, I guess.

I'll be testing this Seagate drive in detail once I've moved all the data off of it and will report what I find (and I'll also report if/when it dies).

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend Seagate until I've seen significant improvements in the handling of their HDs. Their warranty period is lacking and should be addressed.

We had a good run

Pros: Worked well for 3 years;

Cons: Started gradually failing and corrupting data after year 3

Other Thoughts: 3 year life span seems to be the general consensus

Done with Seagate. Bricked after 3 years

Pros: It was fast while it worked.

Cons: I had it connected to my router as a back up drive and it worked great for just about three years then all I got was the clicking sound that so many others mention. Unable to mount, Disk Utility can't mount it, DiskWarrior can't mount it...most unhappy. Hard to believe they won't stand behind their products for more than a year.

Other Thoughts: Avoid. Save yourself the headaches and spend more for a better drive by a better company.
