Died just after 2 years

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Unreliable after warranty expires

Other Thoughts: Wondered why my new iMac kept rebooting and ejecting drives at random times. Tried it on another iMac and couldn’t reliably copy data off (always had a problem copying certain files).

Failed in less than 3 months

Pros: Was able to do a multi-OS boot setup with no issues.

Cons: Failed in less than 3 months.

Other Thoughts: When I got the drive, I was able to partition for multiple OSes with no issues. The last time I was switching between OSes, the drive failed with a super-block error. I was unable to recover any files and was unable to access any partition on the drive. Tried to reformat, but was unable to. Would I buy again, probably not.

My first time buying a HD - So far so good

Pros: - A lot of space
- Reasonable price when on sale
- Surprisingly fast
- Easy to install & format

Cons: - None so far

Other Thoughts: I have been using a 1T Seagate HD for at least 8 years now. Works perfect for many of my games. That HD has been put in three different computers and remains strong. I just needed more than 1T.

Incredible lifespan for Seagate drives.

Hello Hunter M.,

We regret to hear about your experience with the Barracuda drive. We’re certainly sorry you’ve encountered this circumstance. However, we’re hoping to lend a helping hand and offer some assistance which may resolve the issue. From what we understand, the drive died while upgrading the PSU.

In your situation, we would suggest the following steps:
Try connecting the drive to another port on the motherboard.
You may also try using different SATA cables.
Verify if the drive detects within the BIOS.
Try connecting the drive to another computer to see how it reacts.

Performing these steps can rule out a problem with the drive itself. There can be situations where the problem is related to other things which can affect the drive. Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the link below:

If the issue persists, please create a case with our technical support team so we can further investigate and explore available options:

A long term user review

Pros: - Owned this drive since 8/4/2017 and it hasn't broken on me
- Isn't very loud
- Great drive for the price
- Stores my date just fine
- 3TB and is 7200 rpm for a decent price
- Loads my games in a timely manner.

Cons: -The nosiest HDD I own right now (only have one other HDD in my tower a 1tb segate drive) isn't that loud though, I've owned much nosier HDD in the past.

Other Thoughts: Thought I'd write my review now since I've owned this driver for over a year and most people only write reviews when their HDD breaks. I'm happy to report that mine is still working fine even after owning it for over a year. I have 1.64 TB on it right now, most of the date on it is 99% steam games. It does the job just fine for loading them. Of course it isn't as fast as an SSD but it isn't slow either, since it's a 7200 rpm harddrive, I can't tell any different from my 1 TB driver in speeds. It's definitely the loudest drive in my PC tower, I can hear it spinning when it's doing something, but it isn't very load either I can easily ignore it, as it only makes a mild sound. I'd recommend not putting data on it that the PC will be accessing a lot for that reason though. For the price I think this is a great drive, especially since it's 7200 rpm.

Effective, Fast Storage for the Mid-range Buyer

Pros: -Cheaper than most storage
-Large size means no issues for playing games on my computer in the future
-Easy install as with all HDDs
-The single strongest bubble wrap, sorry I mean inflatable air protective packaging wrap, I have ever seen in my life surrounds this
HDD in shipping. I could drop it off a building.
drop this off a

Cons: -What's there to say? I could format and do everything necessary.

Other Thoughts: My first time buying from Seagate worked out. Really nothing to complain about. Now if it breaks in a year or two, I'll have a problem.
