fine - but make sure to turn off HD sleep mode in the OS

Pros: - it works, when it finally wakes up! Seems ok upon turning off the HD sleep mode in the OS
- quiet

Cons: if the OS puts the drive into a sleeping mode (for energy saving), it takes some 10 seconds (painfully long) to get started. Especially bad for a drive that you access many times throughout the day, but not constantly.

Expected more from Seagate!

Pros: Well, it worked for 13 months, no issues.

Cons: It failed after 13 months for no reason whatsoever -- and Seagate could not find one byte of data even though they say 90% success rate. That said, I had it backed up and may have lost a few days, nothing major. However, it took Seagate three weeks to tell me that they could not recover the data -- and then they told me I had to wait for the techs to send it back to me before I could ask for a replacement, and then charge me if I wanted it replaced quickly without sending the crashed disk to them first, which of course they already have. Apparently, the techs in Oklahoma, who could not recover any of the data on the disk, are also not able to speak to the warranty folks in California who say that for sure they will send me a new replacement since it is under warranty. So it could be another two weeks before the replacement arrives, who knows. Now, in 2018, this seems absurd! I have had great success over the years with Seagate but this is ridiculous! Seems like someone in the Seagate tech side of things should be able to talk to the Seagate warranty folks to help a customer. Replacing a bad hard drive under warranty should not take more than an month.

Overall Review: Never had a serious issue with a Seagate drive in the last three decades, but there is obviously a communication issue at Seagate and the customer is the last to know.

Extremely Quiet & Fast

Pros: I don't often review products but after going back and forth between the Western Digital Black 6TB and the Seagate BarraCuda Pro 6TB models, I went with the Seagates. I'd seen quite a few reviews complaining about the WD Black's noise levels for desktop use, primarily due to a preventive wear protection feature that causes the entire drive to spool up every 5 seconds.

The BarraCuda Pros have been whisper silent in my mid-size desktop. I ordered two and they are currently in a RAID 1 array. Transferring data from two WD Black (older generation models) I can definitely say that the Pros are very quiet. Quieter than the older WD Blacks.

Cons: As stated by other reviewers, the Pros only have two sets of screws. This works well for me because they sit on Phantek trays with sound dampening material, and the screws just ensure they don't move from the brackets, but depending on the case or mount method this could be a problem.

Overall Review: So far so good. Will update if I experience a failure in the first few years.

First was defective, but replacement working well

Pros: Replacement drive has worked well, doing everything expected. Have loaded it up about 80% of the way and copied the contents off to external drives a few times and not seen any further issues. Would give it a 5 were it not for the first one being a dud.

Cons: First one I received made frequent clicks, and any kind of large file transaction caused it to hang Windows 10 for a half minute and then finally disappear from the list of drives until the next reboot. Seagate support said the clicking indicated a bad drive and to get a replacement sent.

Decent drive, good size, and not too loud

Pros: Was able to clone my dying WD drives to this and reduce the amount of 3.5" drives in my computer. Also runs quieter than the old WD drives did. Some people were saying these drives are loud, but it appears that they must have fixed that issue with current stock.
5 year warranty is better than most other companies as well, given my last WD drives died after shortly more than 2 years of use, the warranty was a large part of my getting this drive to replace them.

Cons: Lacks the middle set of mounting holes on the drive, so any tool-less mounting brackets (like the ones Phanteks uses in their cases), that use both sets of back holes to lock onto the drive must be modified to work with this drive. Or the drive needs to be modified. Yay for a company not following a mounting standard and making end users do more work.

Overall Review: I'd really rate this closer to 3.5, due to having to choose between modifying a case or a drive to make it fit.
