From the time it was installed, the computer failed to recognize it as a valid drive making it impossible to give it a drive designation

Pros: due to my familiarity with hard drive instillation the product was a simple install , seemingly a plug and play install. that is where the ease of use ended.

Cons: After consulting with my IT guy who recently returned from active duty, it was discovered that the hard drive control circuitry in the drive itself had failed and the drive was incapable of being recognized by the computer so no actual data was put on the drive. This drive was one of two in the computer the other was a 1tb drive so I could get by continuing to use the computer till my IT guy returned from active duty. On his return it was diagnosed as a fault in the drive control circuitry and that was 5 mos. later.No extended warranty was purchased with the drive so I presume I an without recourse but to buy another drive.

Overall Review: The drive is a Segate 6Tb Barracuda and even brand new drives occasionally have faults. I didn't suspect there would be the necessity to replace the drive so I waited till the return of my tech to diagnose it. By then it became painfully evident that whatever warranty interval was long since expired. I don't have a problem with Segate hardrives in general but any electro-mechanical device is bound to either fail after use or fail to perform properly from the start. I suppose I should have pulled it out immediately and sought a RMA so a new one could replace it. It looks like a harddrive but isn't one & never has been. I give it one egg for that.

Not a new drive! Was sold as new!

Pros: The price was too good to be true!

Cons: The drive was packed very poorly and was bounced around a lot. The drive did not look new nor was it sealed. I ran the serial number through the Seagate website and guess what, the warranty expired over a year ago.

Overall Review: I would have given them no stars if I could!
Do not use this vendor!
