1 out of 5 eggs Read/Write Errors & Seek Errors 06/16/2014

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST2000VN000 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Quite, and low power consumption.

Cons: SMART Data revealed increasing Read/Write Errors and Seek Errors on both drives purchased. Contacted manufacturer and inquired as to acceptable limits on Smart Data Fields 1, and 7 respectively. Was told the data was confidential, and that I should run Seatools to verify drive functionality before return. As the drives were installed in a Microsoft Storage Space (Mirror) the only way to test is to purchase (Another Spare Drive), to back up the mirror and then run seatools on the drive once safely removed.

My 30 day return with New Egg has expired so I can nolonger return the drives, and will now need to send both, back for repair to Seagate.

A very unproductive time to be had trying to determine actual reliability of the drives.

Also, ended up purchasing another drive as a spare, probably 3 years before I need one as a result.

Other Thoughts: Manufacturers should publish acceptable SMART read/write error rates, and seek error rates if any for their products.
