Big, pretty fast.

Pros: Simple install (nowadays how could it not be?) , build quality consistent with my prior drives in this product line.

Cons: Not free. Warranty shorter than I'd like.

Other Thoughts: I've had a few Seagate drives give up the ghost in my RAID array and in desktops, typically after 4+ years of heavy use. I even had a bunch of the supposedly flawed 1.5 TB drives. I still have 4 serviceable 500 GB BarraCudas runnning as real-time backup, a RAID1 array and in an external eSATA enclosure. I've consistently gotten my money's worth out of Seagate drives and when they have crapped out under warranty (3 times), replacement was relatively painless.

Max storage is 1.99TB but I bought/paid/shipped for a 3TB hard drive

Pros: It got here on time 2-5 days shipping and it got here on the second day

Cons: The labels on the product say it’s a 3TB and until setting the it up and running it I thought it was too. I’m looking at my file explorer and my disk management they’re both telling me it’s only a 1.99TB not even 2:(

Other Thoughts: I want a refund or a replacement, I usually only by WB drives maybe I shouldn’t have switch brands because the inconvenience alone is enough to never buy from the same seller again I’ll be looking out for the name to avoid it.

Freezes my CPU every 30-60 minutes...

Pros: - 3TB?!

Cons: - Freezes PC

Other Thoughts: I bought this and installed it in my brand new PC. It has NEVER been dropped or tampered with. And since I installed this SeaGate BarraCrapa HD, it has been causing FREQUENT freezing for about 5 seconds (and getting worse by freezing for longer and longer as time goes on). I'm afraid this will eventually die out on me, making my Hard Drive absolutely unreliable, and thus useless. I would highly suggest avoiding this brand as it is known to be of lesser qualify than the others.

Did not come in original packaging

Pros: -When I plugged it in it said it was a 4TB HD instead of 3.

Cons: - Did not work
- Ended up having to go through Seagate for a RMA who tried to charge me for shipping
- Ended up going to computer store for a exact match which did come in the original packaging and worked as soon as I plugged it in.

Not Bad

Pros: Very quiet, which is my primary reason for buying Seagate..
No bad sectors.

Cons: The write speed drops a lot after drive is over half full..

Other Thoughts: A couple of thoughts... The drive is not "Initialized" from the factory, which requires doing this in Disk Management as a "GPT (GUID)" drive for the entire 3TB to be usable...

The drive was originally Initialized\Formatted with Windows 10... This resulted in write speeds of non fragmented 20GB image files of 165mb\s, which was quite disappointing...

After messing with this for awhile I loaded an Image of Windows 7 Pro onto the same machine and started over..
The write speed using the exact same files as before increased to 196mb\s...

This write speed dropped to 100mb\s after copying 2TB to the drive... I don't think my previous 3TB Seagate drives had that much of a speed reduction..
